Marriage, at times, can feel worse than this.
For some this piece will seem tongue-and-cheek “OOOOHHH THIS IS SATIRE <nervous laugh>!”
To others this piece will user in a PTSD-like reminder of a very painful chapter of their lives where expectations for lifelong unity were crushed.
Marriage was a decision my wife and I made together 25 years ago and, in our case, it’s still a great idea.
Us, together as equals, is still a great idea.
If I/we died today, we would have done so leaving the world a better place sinply becasue of the 3 kids we created and developed with the guidance of God/Higher Power/The Universe.
