If the purpose is to have the MOST POPULAR thread at TAM, you'd be better served with a spit/swallow thread.
This is so very true, some of the threads I see take off here...I just shake my head....
SGW is so right on... in her words.......it's in the portrayal of the human ups & downs on this Marital Train that can derail at times....and that hard work/ discipline/ resolve to keep giving ...forgiving....as you get the wheels back on track....this others can relate
to...such stories are inspiring
...it speaks something to them as hope can be found in the ashes. ..
...Ya know I have entertained putting our Love story in this section...What stops me is this >> It would come off like too much of a Fairy Tale.
For us...Our most difficult times was BEFORE WE MET
....I've have more tears
, anger, feeling alone & unwanted ...from age 9 to 15 than I have in 31 yrs with this man by my side....he's forever been my daily sunshine....
Very few could relate to our struggles (Secondary Infertility, Men who love so much they are passive to their own needs (only in the bedroom).....I can't say our wheels ever left the track...even in my tears over feeling I'll never realize the family we have today...he still made it all so bearable..... Even when we fought, it was over in a few hours...couldn't ask for more.... ...then we found a renewed passion in Mid life - my focus off all those arrows we were blessed with...and solely onto HIM.....
Too much of this
... will bring out this response in others >>
...as it needs more DRAMA somehow....
So just keep it Real
Drerio...I think the rule goes something like this....the further you fall away...hitting those gutters in life...those Prodigal son journeys (or wayward husbands)....generally the more depth to your story....having experienced both sides....this is what life is all about.
...and have a great Family Sunday...
