In the past month, I have had two dear friends who have been married over 18 years each and then…their husbands decided they had fallen out of love and wanted a divorce. That’s it. No counseling or trying in anyway…just done.
Taking into consideration the recent rants I’ve had over being honest in dating relationships, I’m realizing the whole honesty and effort thing is a much broader issue.
Are we made to be monogamous? I know my own thoughts…I want yours. And…as my friend pointed out…life expectancy is so much longer so does that fit in or has infidelity and walking away from relationships like this always existed?
Is monogamy an expectancy in marriage? For me, yes. However, even when it isn’t…there are expectancies of honesty and of doing everything humanly possible to save a marriage and family…just walking out feels like a horrible option unless addiction or abuse are at play. That’s just me…..
I won’t be offended at anyone’s input, I’m genuinely curious.

I am a brave, worthy, loved by God, truly happy, whimsical, whole and surrendered woman basking in the warmth of God's sunshine....I am also an engaged and trusting Momma with the heart of a child! I am His child.
These truths remain yet I have to remind myself that THESE ARE MY TRUTHS and that means something entirely different to me than when I first was touched by these words.
Then, they were words and now, they have become words with life in them. Words I am doing my damndest to live out every day. I am now a single Momma, my Daddy has gone to Heaven and life looks different every day. None of my life's circumstances have changed the reality of who I am at my core and I think that's a really cool thing!
I am ecstatic to be writing again. I invite you to join me on this journey. I welcome feedback and conversational dialogue and I promise to be write straight from my heart because I that's the language I am most fluent in.
