The Move In.

In my previous post I talked about "5 Things They Don't Tell You About Moving In Together." I wanted to take a step further in today's post to tell you a more detailed account of things I did and have noticed about the days following the move in with my ex (almost) husband.

When we were dating and before we got married my ex (almost) husband was all about getting married after we graduated college and started a career. He was in school to become a physical therapist and it would have taken more than 5 years to complete all the schooling, etc. that he needed to start a career.

... then less than 6 months later we found out that I was pregnant with my now 3 year old... and he proposed. THIS was a red flag for my parents... why I did not listen? I don't know.

Divorce- January 4th


No one ever said divorce was something people strive for. Actually the word divorce was shunned from our vocabulary during our marriage. However, there are a few exceptions to the rule that says divorce is not an option...

in the case of adultery and/or abandonment it is okay to divorce your spouse. I would also imagine that emotional or physical abuse is a cause for divorce... especially when help has been given and no attempt to change was established.

... which brings me to the quote of the day.

"Divorce isn't such a tragedy. A tragedy is staying in an unhappy marriage, teaching your children the wrong things about love. Nobody ever died of divorce." - Jennifer Weiner- Author of "Fly Away Home." 

I say it all the time ... and my parents remind me constantly ... I do not want my children growing up with the wrong idea of relationships, marriage and commitment. Because being in a relationship is not fighting, screaming, yelling, crying or (God forbid) hitting.

I want my children to grow up knowing what love is.

Do you know what love is? Do I?

-Brittani
