I have often seen my life mirroring that mom's and everytime I expessed to her how tired and frustrate I am with my own marriage she has adviced me to think of my children.
Are we in unfulfilled marriages because we want our children to feel that false sense of security? I look at her and I wonder, is our children just and excuse to stay in such a marriage. Her youngest child went off to college this year.
My children are 5 and 8. I am afraid that I too might end up trapped in my marriage for the next 12 or so years.
Isn't marriage suppose to be about finding someone who you love and who loves you and plans of living happily ever after. Why is it when we stray away from these things we, find ways to justify the union.
Speak to me my good people.
