Ashleigh of Heart & Home on marriage

Sooo... what do you all think happened here? My guess is some kind of infidelity; that would probably be the one thing that would prompt Ashleigh to consider divorce. She did marry very young -- in her teens, if I remember correctly.

It is hard to say with this one. She seems really young still and prone to the dramatic and her husband was deployed for quite some time. So who knows - maybe it's her just being her or may be the separation was the problem or maybe he/she cheated while separated?

I wouldn't disagree with her that love is a choice. On some level, I do choose to love my husband (not just in the way I feel, but by my actions) and he chooses to love me. When a marriage becomes a decades-long affair, there are bound to be lots of days in those decades where one or the other or both didn't feel particularly in love, or maybe didn't even like the other person that much at that particular point in time. So it is our commitment to love sometimes more than the actual love itself that carries us through those occasions.

But I would argue to the blogger that there are times when love is the wrong choice. She claims to have made the right choice by sticking out a difficult time in her marriage, and I have no reason to doubt that it was the right choice for her. But it isn't the right choice for everybody. A lot of people shouldn't be married to each other. Their union and the continuation of it causes pain and long-lasting damage, for themselves and for any children of the marriage. For them, the right choice may very well be (and should be) to slip that ring off for good.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
