    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...

    It's a Damn Trap!

    I literally just heard a woman I work with say "It's more expensive to get a divorce than it is to get married"  Amen sister!! I sat and watched the church I grew up in marry children (20 year olds) off just so they wouldn't have pre-marital sex! That's a crock of...

    If You Are Thinking About It...don't Do It, Just Don't Do It

    We have all been there, some of us are still wading in it's trenches. You meet a man/woman, the biology of the situation kicks in, you feel the warm fuzzies, you think you want this forever. Let me tell you folks on the fence some real ish, people don't stay the same forever...

    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...

    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...

    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

    I don't believe in divorce. So, my first marriage is most likely going to be my only marriage. But I am not going to get married until I am 46 or 49. Lmao
