Is it just me, or does it hit you wrong when you see stuff on emails or Facebook along the lines of "Divorce is not an option in my marriage."?
Most of the time I just go about my business because I know these people are making a statement about commitment and longevity in their marriages. But lately it's just making me feel a little stabby.
It's not like any of us went into our marriage looking to divorce. Or that we woke up one day and said, "You know I just can't take it that . . . he always leaves the toilet seat up, or she leaves her hair and makeup products all over the bathroom sink . . . think I'll get a Divorce."
Most of us fight tooth and nail to keep our marriages intact. But damn - there comes a point when you don't feel like sharing your spouse with another person.
I wish they just wouldn't share their "holier than thou" relationship news with the rest of the world - we get it - you're in love and you don't think it will ever end. It doesn't mean that those of us who are divorced are quitters.
Guess that's the end of my rant - back to your regularly scheduled programming.
