I watched the 1990s movie Forrest Gump again with my teenagers over the holiday weekend. You know, I wish I had married a Forrest Gump. Strong, faithful, reliable, loyal, stable, financially secure, safe, generous, honest, true-to-his-word… it makes his IQ irrelevant. He's smart where it matters. And where smart doesn't factor in, he's lucky.
For those of you who have never seen that movie, put it at the top of your list. It ranks right up there as one of my favorite movies of all times.
For what it's worth, I'll probably never ever marry again. I'm almost 9 years into being divorced and if anything I feel more strongly that way than in the beginning. But if Forrest Gump came into my world, I would reconsider.
