waves
An interesting (and inspiring, to me) take on marriage here. I only hope that I could be that strong.

i just read that article...pretty fascinating. and how sometimes it is hard to know if it is the person or the relationship that needs fixing.

Wow. I read the article...it really resonated with me having gone through an eerily similar situation 6 years ago. I mean really resonated with me, like there's a manual somewhere my husband and the writer's must've shared-and she and I as well. I stuck it out, I gave him space and distance, but I didn't give up and I would'nt give in. From December of 2003 to June of 2004, we did the 'dance' and then one day he returned for good. I've never regretted a minute of it even when I thought madness was imminent.

I want to say that I hope you never have to be that strong, but inside I hope you are already, for both of you; strength is an essential part of marriage.

I was really moved by this woman's story, and her strength to stick out the proverbial storm. The fact that she was able to not take it personally and give him space and time to work it out... That's a pretty amazing woman.
