One thing I have never been able to wrap my mind around is people who get divorced and then remarried. And the ones who get divorced more than once and remarried more than once (think Liz Taylor) must be completely insane. It's like hitting yourself over the head with a hammer over and over and expecting it not to hurt the 2nd, 3rd, 4th times.
I come from a small family and my parents are still together after over 45 years of (seemingly) happy marriage. That is my reality..that the one you marry is the only one you'll marry, until you die. I am lucky that I am not from a broken family.
And for me, I am married, now for over 20 years. And no, it's not easy sometimes. But it is what it is. I sometimes wonder what would happen if I got divorced. One thing is for sure..I would not tie the knot again. What's the point? I am not having more kids. I don't need to rely on someone to support me (much). So why?
So let's get back to the other crazy people. I see it all the time on Facebook. One minute, my FB friend is married, the next minute their status changes to "it's complicated" then to "divorced", or "single". Then it seems like no time passes and they are in another serious relationship. Before you know it, they are posting wedding pics. Do they really think they've found their happily ever after? Do they think that their new spouse won't bring challenges, or be like the old spouse (it happens more than you think). I wonder if they are kidding themselves.
I am not against relationships or divorce. Get divorced if you are unhappy. But why, why would someone want to put a ring back on it when we all know that marriage is the first step downhill?
That's the problem: I have no faith. I am bitter, Dino. Very bitter.
Dear Bitter Pill,
Dear Bitter Pill,
Have faith in love. There's a reason why men and women fit together. Bitter can kill you or make you smarter.
Bitter was killing me...but you can't know love without knowing life without it. I choose love now. But I'm cautious, smarter, realistic that nothing lasts forever...that all you can do is try.
The Elizabeth Taylor types...they marry because it's status for them. Celebrities don't count, they profit off of such things. The serial married type, they just have issues.
But sometimes it takes a certain level of maturity and in finding the right partner to coexist. Nothing in life is easy...its not supposed to be. The greater reward is for those who work and try the most.
Believe in love...there is nothing greater.
