  • Marriage. Marriage is probably one of the biggest commitments you will ever make in your life. You’re committing to one person, for the rest of your life. One person to love for all of eternity, one person to never give up on, one person to care for, one person to always support. Marriage isn’t just a set of rings that mean nothing. Marriage is so much more. It has so much meaning. Marriage isn’t easy; in fact it’s really hard. I mean, c’mon living with one person for the rest of your life, you would expect arguments and disagreements. But marriage shouldn’t be something you give up on, its something you work for. Something you truly wouldn’t want to lose.

    Giving up. Giving up a lifetime with one person is sometimes what happens to people. They give up on that one commitment that they truly believed in. It’s usually never by choice, because once they did love each other so much. Once they did mean their marriage. But if you wake up wondering, “what am I still doing here” then obviously the marriage isn’t for you. You can try and try as hard as you want but if its not meant to be it wont work. It won’t ever work. To an extent you’ll have to completely give up, and come to terms with that decision.

    Divorce. Divorce is also one of the biggest commitments you will ever make in your life. You’re committing to being done with your partner, for whatever reason. Committing to never being with them again. Divorce is the final straw. The one decision that completely ends everything. Divorce could be great for some people and terrible for others. Divorcee is great when both people just don’t love each other. But it’s terrible when one end of the relationship still genuinely cares for the other. But hey, it’s better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.

    Regret. Regret only happens sometimes. Sometimes people regret their separation. But this regret is usually to late. The other person has already moved on. The other person probably doesn’t want to give you another chance because it didn’t work the first time. Regret is the worst part of divorce.

    Lastly, moving on. Moving on is the best part of divorce, mainly because it’s allowing you to cleanse the pallet, so to speak. It allows you to find true love, love that you didn’t have in your previous marriage, or maybe you did. Once. And that love just left. The flame burnt out. The passion was gone. And the love just wasn’t there. But moving on lets you forget about all of that. And start new.
