    Used to think i was going to meet a perfect

    girl, someone i wanted to spend the rest of my life with. Used to think i'd get married and everything will be just fine, but that bubble burst a while ago. I've seen many marriages, not one genuinely 'happy'. Sure the ones i'd call successful are the ones that stick together...

    Marriage Isn't For Everyone

    The worst experience in my life was my parent's divorce.  Don't get me wrong, they needed to get divorce, but the divorce itself was this four year process of backstabbing and constant crying.  Imagine being 11 years old and the only adult in a triangle relationship...

    I just recently found out

    Joined This Group Ages Ago And It'S Still True

    Marriage can be so good. Someone has committed to having your back, and you theirs... that is supposed to be how it works. I’ve been married twice and divorced twice, so it obviously didn’t work that way for me. I had really high hopes especially the second time, and I...

    I Have Become Cynical

    I feel resentful because I have lost faith and hope in marriage. I am in a lonely, unhappy marriage and its made me cynical which I hate. When I see couples getting married I always either think don't bother! Or if I'm feeling a bit more positive that day I hope that they are...

    I think the bible is a load of fairytales but I don't know if I believe in God or not. It says that God loves you... but then he damns you to hell if you're not a good person
