Whoa–I just read an interesting Huffington Post piece by Iris Krasnow, author of The Secret Lives of Wives: Women Share What it Really Takes to Stay Married.
In “The Fine Line Between Marriage and Divorce,” Krasnow reveals that most married women contemplate divorce “if not weekly, at least once a month.”
And it’s not like she pulled this out of her hat–this is what she came up with after interviewing 200 married women over the past two years. I’m surprised but I can’t say immensely so. I mean, this shit is hard.
“Who stays married,” she says, “and who doesn’t is a question not always about commitment or deep abiding love — it’s about endurance.”
Jesus! If I didn’t need a drink before, I do now!
Talk about big stuff. And wow, would I love to hear your thoughts on this one–with or without your name attached to it. If you don’t want to post in the comment section, just drop me a line (my email address is on the Contact link on the home page) and I’ll include it in my next post without any incriminating information.
So, let’s hear it, friends. Have you ever thought about divorcing your husband?
Hubbies, I’d love to hear from you, too.
