Baby you’re bumming me Out!

Dear readers,

People say that the number one reason relationships end is because couples , out grow each other, or grow apart. Honestly, what does growing apart mean? Didn’t he or she realize that marrying or cohabiting with a coach potato that overtime your partner would remain a coach potato. One spouse has achieved a higher level of education or ambition, resulting in he or she earning a six figure income; and the other spouse is still doing what?

He is a home body, she is a social butterfly. The vegan trying to coexist with a carnivore, high sex drive, sorry, not tonight, I have a headache. she is into physical fitness, him, ” whats wrong with my pot belly?”  Wrinkles, snoring, grey hair, no hair, sagging breast and lumpy thighs. We communicate less, and less; forgetting birthdays and anniversaries. Arriving home later, and later, if he or she comes home at all, and sleeps in the guest room. This goes on and on until someone yells, UNCLE!

Oh, well, I guess things do fall apart.

    I can’t speak for others but I was taught from the beginning that marriage, and even love is a choice and a commitment, something that takes constant work to maintain. My husband and I have been married for 22 years and we are determined to make it last. And sometimes, sheer determination is the driving factor getting us through the rough spots. It’s not easy, that’s for certain! Good post…good food for thought…

      Thank you for taking the time to read my post and make a comment.
      Congrats on 22 years of marriage. My parent were married for 32 years and they had 12 children.
      I agree, when two people vow to love and stand by each other side until death do them part, they should do so.
      I haven’t been fortunate, but I am still holding out hope.

    It’s a lot I can say regarding this subject. But as a young man who has been married for 12 of the 15 yrs of my relationship. I sum up my words in a single phrase. You get out what you put in it.
