Our Dreamy Divorce πŸ’”

Screen Shot 2018-04-03 at 8.50.16 AM

This recently released separation announcement by a Hollywood power-couple is so sweet and lovely, one could almost buy into the notion that divorcing is nothing more than the wonderful, completely natural evolution of a healthy and progressive marriage.

This amicable split sounds like a fabulous stage in their relationship; that “beautiful adventure” they now realize is taking them to two different places….BUT hey, they are excited to “help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives possible” on these separate, happy trails.

“ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAS CHANGED ABOUT HOW MUCH WE LOVE EACH OTHER.”

Nothing? Really…? πŸ€”

I’m not arguing that these two people needed to issue some nasty or sad statement.Β  Frankly, they don’t owe anybody any tweet about anything..but please, in this era of fake news and fake life and general all around fakiness, can we inject just a touch of realityΒ  into what we say..or maybe just say nothing?

I know too many people in ‘Real-ville’ dealing with the never-ending after-shocks of busted marriages not to call out this “dreamy divorce” garbage. By all means, live your life, but for the safety of those who reflexively roll their eyeballs when confronted with BS, try to live it in truth!

And that’s my mini-rant for the morning…does this qualify as a work-out of any kind?

No?

Oh well…enjoy your Wednesday!

  1. This is the kind of thing that really makes my head explode. You couldn’t have loved each other enough to marry if you can walk away from it this easily. Seriously, folks. This makes me nuts!

    • The whole thing is just irritating. My parents divorced, so of course I always think of the ramifications for the child..but as I get older, I also think about the grandparents and how divorce affects them. It’s just deeply dishonest and cavalier to pretend is no big deal…anyway, I have a totally unrelated question for you. Didn’t you get a puppy? I was wondering if you got pet insurance..I’m picking up our puppy this week-end, and was considering signing up..probably just for the first year as the dog is an “unknown quantity” health wise.. what are your thoughts?

      • Good question and congrats on the puppy!!! We had insurance on our old dog, Tucker. It ended being totally pointless. The cost went up every year, so that by the end of his life, it was out of control. Would have made much more sense to have just saved a few dollars a month for the future! That said, if I had an unknown quantity of a new pup, the idea of having insurance just for a year or two does make good sense. What kind of dog did you get?

      • Thanks for your reply! After spending over a year trying to find a non-shedding rescue, I finally gave up and we are getting a Havanese from a breeder..this week-end.. πŸ˜ƒI have read soo much about insurance and came to the same conclusion you did. I read many reviews about insurance skyrocketing as the dogs get older ..and as you recommended, Consumer Reports suggested simply putting cash aside. I did tell my husband I thought we should at least do one year just in case.. and then drop coverage if the puppy is basically healthy. πŸ‘

      • we got insurance for our first pup, who broke his leg a week before it went into effect. We used it for basic care for ten years, then realized how much it was costing. We dropped it and he had emergency surgery……

      • Ugh, that stinks. our last dog had three surgeries for bladder stones..we had no insurance. It was a so expensive..my poor husband was freaking out when they kept coming back..😩It’s a crap shoot, it really is..but I told him yesterday i want to do the first year and if this little gal is healthy, we’ll drop it.
