Marital Bliss No Lucky Yes

The cousin I was closest to while growing up once told me that he spent eighty dollars taking the girl he was dating at the time to six flags. 

She later became his first wife and his marriage to her ended badly as did his second marriage. He is currently on his third marriage…

On the other hand I spent an average of twenty dollars a week dating the girl who would become my wife. 

Thirty-six years later we are still married. It hasn’t been easy and neither of us are entirely happy with each other but the important thing is: WE ARE STILL TOGETHER!

My mother married number 7 not long after my wife and I married. He died and she married number eight, divorced him on paper and applied for number Steven’s SS benefits and remarried number eight on paper so he became number nine. When he died she married number ten who divorced her a couple of years later only to remarry him recently making him number eleven. 

Throughout my thirty-six year marriage my mother has been married five times to three different men. 

What the hell is wrong with me?

    1. Thank you Stephanie! I’ve ridden on the roller coaster of my mother’s choices since I was nine years old and have paid a very high price. I’m just glad that there are still women out there – like yourself – who know better.
