Makes you think twice before you say yes.

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

How do you go about life after a divorce, or a death? How do you go from living with someone to adjusting to living alone? I imagine it is hard. It takes a special woman to raise her children alone, without help. I know of some, friends of mine. I don't know how they got the strength to do it, but they did. Life is a hard journey and some women and men go through life alone, while others marry. Some make it to many years, while others don't. Some want to marry but the right person has not come along yet, while others wished they stayed single. The world is made up of many people, all different from each other. Some can live with nothing, others want the world. Some will share the burden of all the work that goes into a marriage, while others won't lift a finger. Makes you think twice before you answer yes, I will marry you.

    You're right, "'til death us do part" is quite a commitment!

    You are very very right.

    I am on my second marriage. My first one I got married when I was 22, with him since 19. I loved him very much, and we thought we were on the same page, then some major things changed our lives. It was awful. They say it is harder than a death, because with death, that person didn't choose to leave.

    My second marriage is different. Before I said yes, we talked endlessly about how and what this meant for us. About what we both expected out of this marriage and how divorce was NOT an option.

    Maybe if more people discussed those things first, the divorce rate wouldn't be so staggaringly high.
