Why Bother Getting Married If…

Why Bother Getting Married If…

You’re just going to get a divorce?

As my one year wedding anniversary looms near, I have been taking a look over the past year. There have been mad times, sad times, but overall, mostly happy times. Perhaps this is naive, but I cannot even begin to imagine my life without my husband. He is my everything- my best friend. When I said my vows- for better, for worse- I meant every word.

I bring up divorce because friends of ours, who got married a year before us, are getting divorced- my husband was a groomsman in his wedding. With few signs or signals, he returned home from 2 weeks of fishing to divorce papers. I suppose I perhaps didn’t see this one lasting, but I was constantly surprised by this couple. They were loving with each other and had fun together. What more do you want? They were even planning to start a family this fall.

I guess I just don’t understand, after you take those vows, how it is even possible to walk away. Upon hearing this news, my heart broke for my husband’s friend. He didn’t deserve this- he is a good guy who was very much in love with his wife. Which brings me back to my anniversary- I can’t even begin to imagine what my life would be without Mr. Joe by my side. He’s the yin to my yang… my other half. He’s also quite possibly the only person who even remotely understands me. I could not even begin to imagine what could possibly make me give that up. There isn’t anything. In my naive world, I will be with this man until I’m old and gray and we’ll have had a lovely life together. Love you “Joe”!
