About 4 years ago, I got a divorce. I never dreamed in my wildest imaginations that I would be divorced. The truth of the matter is that I am against it. It was not an option when I got married. We even spoke that declaration out loud and made a vow to keep it. What happened?
What happened was the first question to cross my mind when I got divorced. I thought…well, I did everything that I was supposed to do… For example, I was a virgin when I got married. I only had a handful of boyfriends. I had just graduated from college. I took birth control the first couple of years so that we didn’t have a baby right away. I accepted my husband and bent over backwards to make sure he was happy.
I learned to cook. I did my best to keep a clean house. I keep going to church and I continually tried to involve my husband in the things of God. I hung passages on the wall so that we may read them together. I worked hard and tried to ensure that everything was 50/50. My husband even said that I was the perfect wife.
I didn’t argue a lot. I wasn’t a nagger or a complainer. I did what my husband told me to do on most occasions. I told my husband everything about me and about my day to day activities even if the information got me into trouble. For example, my husband encouraged me to hang out with a friend that went to bars and got drunk. He said I needed to have more fun in my life. So I did.
