My marriage crumbling to the consistency of the dust that settles in the bottom of a box of cereal turned our to be the best thing that ever happened to me. It forced me to take a long look at myself and what I did and did not bring to the table. It showed me how so many of us get trapped by unrealistic expectations of what marriage is (and isn’t) because we expect so little of ourselves. This reflection produced volumes of essays and quick quips that I have decided serve no purpose in my personal journals.
This is not an anti-marriage blog. Contrary to popular belief. However, you should also consider the source. I am bitter and cynical after all. Truthfully, un|wed is an unexpected journey to self-discovery. It is intended to be a tool…a guide for understanding who you are and what you want before you “get hitched” so that you can either remain un|wed or avoid becoming un|wed later on.
Just in case you were wondering, yes, this will be a book someday.
