    I have been married to the same man for almost 25 years.  We have had great times and very hard times.  In November we had a huge argument and he said he wanted a divorce.  I said ok, couple days later he wanted to talk. As we talk he said we should wait to make sure that is...

    What You Desire Is Closer Than You Know...

    I definitely agree that husbands and wives give up much too quickly in our culture of "'throw-away" relationships.  I've seen that tendency to want to "toss in the towel" in myself...  and I don't like it. As I entered my mid-life crisis a few years...

    Disagree

    I'm in total disagreement.  I think too many people stay in bad marriages.  Want to waste a lifetime?  Stay in a bad marriage.  Divorce can be a fresh, new beginning.  It is foolish to stay in a bad or loveless marriage.
