Things you know when you're older - 4

Number 4. In a divorce, NO ONE wins or loses; it's all a matter of different levels of loss. Only attorneys benefit, in this case.

While there is no such thing as "marriage insurance", a couple's united commitment /will/ see them through the most feverish storms. Just gotta hang in there and not run when it gets tough, and you think you can't go on anymore.

"United Commitment"

Which is why I came to the brink of suicide when she left with her boyfriend; I couldn't be committed to the marriage alone.

Wow. I'm sorry to hear that. I don't know her or YOU, but I do know that you deserve better than that.

Sometimes, it better to be alone than be with someone who's so poisonous. How's your situation now? During times when I feel alone and REAL bad (or after a tragic incident), I try really hard to find the lesson I was supposed to learn from having survived all that.

What was yours?

And I'm so sorry that happened to you.

Provided that both parties are still willing to put forth effort, I completely agree.

It definitely takes a 100% effort from BOTH to make it work. Not just one giving 50%, ya know?

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
