“I love my husband… So try not to kill him. Or divorce him ” .
There’s a statement that bears repeating – a comendable thought, and practice.
But for me, motivation to not irreparably fray the bonds of matrimony lies somewhere closer to:
“Life with him as an EX-husband would be much, much worse than this.”
Not the most romantic phrase, perhaps, but there is none truer.
This isn’t, actually, a complaint. A mere statement of fact.
And one that keeps me from throwing the towel in, when all else seems hopeless.
