... at the opportunity. Deep down inside I knew he was not "the one" but it would take me away from a life I didn't want to lead anymore. Anything was better than the life I had. So I got married. I could say it was the worst mistake of my life but in fact it wasn't - even though I found myself divorced at the ripe age of 18. It provided me with the opportunity to have a life which was far better than what I had.

... asked him what was going on and where are they going in such a rush. He stopped me right there, they were not all going to be leaving, just him. Charles went on to explain that they are having difficult times in their marriage and as a result he was told to leave and that she wants an immediate divorce. He said he has been stying in a hotel for the last week or so because she won't talk to him any further. Anyway, she gave him permission to come home and pick his belongings up which she packed and set in the garage. Her and their three teenage daughters were out running errands at the time... (more)
Boerne is 51yrs old, handsome in a rugged sort of way; olive skin, high cheekbones and black straw-like hair. He’s never been a talker and we sit on the veranda drinking beer instead, our eyes drawn to a 2 x 6 metre recycle bin out front. At the end the day the sun is uncanny and low, the sky scarlet as summer bushfires rage in the western ranges.
“Good of you to help out,” says Boerne, flicking the top from another beer. “To be honest, you know, I’d rather be somewhere else.” And for the briefest of moments, his dark eyes leave the recycle bin. “Maybe we just got married too young.... (more)
...today, seizing the moment at hand. They are taking control of their own lives. Life, after all, is often a disambiguation.
The Reality: Life happens. Love is found. Marriage is made. Family is created. Dreams are crushed. And in many cases, when there just isn’t room for compromise, divorce is the ultimatum. Today, brave women are boldly girding themselves and moving to rise from still smoldering ashes and carving a new path for themselves and for their children.
I know of one such courageous woman, she is dear and near to my heart. She’d found her glass slipper, once,... (more)
London: "An obsession with sex and divorce is running rampant through British society, the Bishop of London, Richard Chartres, said on Saturday, urging Britons to use the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations as a chance to reflect and change their ways."
Chartres stated that rapid economic progress since Elizabeth took the throne in 1952, had not come without its cost. “Promiscuity, separation and divorce have reached epidemic proportions in our society," he wrote, in a pamphlet, to mark this weekend’s festivities.
Chartres is seen by many as a potential successor to Rowan... (more)
So here I'm blabbing about divorce and I'm divorced. Hmm... I took my vows seriously and meant them. I believe in my heart that I would still be married to my x if he hadn't left for greener pastures. I wasn't given any choice. I'm not saying I wasn't just as much at fault. I just didn't have a choice.
Years later I found out that pretty much our whole marriage was a sham. He had slept around for years. As it turns out, many of his conquests were my girl friends. The worst part of it all is, it was my son who told me this.
My x left us and didn't bother with the boys... (more)
There's something I would like to share that I usually don't with people. So please, hear me out. I am not a religious guy, or one to get on his knees and pray. In fact, I would almost call myself agnostic in my beliefs, although I do not even follow that to the letter. I think MANY people are in the same mindset as me when it comes to that. But I do respect those who are religious and have that belief system.Well, when I arrived here, on the island of Puerto Rico, I was a shell of a man. Soulless and broken down. I'll spare all of the details, but most of you who regularly read my writings... (more)
I will always be one who looks back. Out of my past, with all its levels of conjured contentedness concealed between cushions of deceit, I draw my emotion. In the losses, I find my determination. In the pain, I uncover energy to search for the truth of healing. In the regret, I discover grace. Out of the stupidity of ill-conceived actions and words, I hunger for wisdom. In the layers of the past, I see the unfolding of the future.
On some days, it is as if I am still stuck back there; on others it is as if I never was. Such is an Odyssey of Grace, a clumsy reconciling of sin and shame... (more)
Just another day in paradise. Or is it paradise lost? Thought my life was okay, for the most part. Pretty average really. Could there have improvement? Of course. Who's life can't use improvement in certain areas? No one's life is really perfect. And certainly not mine.Like I stated before, I left home at a young age. Fifteen to be exact. Dropped out of high school and moved away. And why is that? Because I met HER. We will use the name HER to protect the not so innocent. I will admit, I'm still at a loss and am somewhat confused, but it could be just me being in denial. It would seem in all... (more)
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. -- Isaiah 40:30-31
The man slept. Finally. His body had pleaded; his mind had relented; his spirit was depleted and his heart had retreated, so he slept. It was restless, not restful, and the dreams were not sweet, but instead added to the eventual misery of awakening, leaving him already tired upon rising.... (more)
