relationship

‘I see the ‘someone’s sleeping on the couch tonight’ memes. I hear, ‘The more you fight, the more passionate you are.’ It doesn’t feel normal, because it isn’t.’: Woman urges ‘normalize healthy, empathy-based love’

“This isn’t what marriage should look like. In a world where half don’t make it, be different. This life has more than enough for us to fight against, without us fighting our partner. No matter how many movies and memes make it look funny.”

‘Molly…’ My husband looked me dead in the eye. ‘We need to talk.’ Shaking, he told me the painful truth no one in a monogamous relationship wants to hear.’: Divorcee urges ‘listen to your heart’

“I sat there in silence for what seemed like an eternity. ‘Say something, please…’ he begged. After several minutes, all I could manage to mutter was, ‘Well, I guess now we finally have an excuse to get a divorce.’ Within 2 weeks, I watched my dreams of building a life and a family disappear in front of my eyes.”

‘My husband never holds my hand in public, but he brings home my favorite ice cream even though it’s not the grocery list.’: Woman says ‘my husband loves in quiet, and that’s okay’

“You’ll rarely see him gush over me on social media. Flowers do not arrive at my office on special occasions for the world to see. He loves in the quiet of holding my hand in his truck while we drive. He loves in quiet by sitting by my side on a porch swing, watching our children play.”
