Someone who admire quite a bit, because she is frank and honest and brave – just separated from her husband of 15 years.

In October 2012 her baby brother committed suicide, and she has been in deep, deep grief ever since. Her two young sons have weathered the storm quite well. Her friends have banded around her as best they could. And her husband?

I always wonder what people actually think Wedding Vows mean.

In sickness and in health?
Through the good times and bad?

Life is HARD

It’s MUCH harder on your own – I know, I’m doing it.

And I just want to understand, if you only intend to hang around for the ‘good times’, then why go to the effort of getting married? Marriage is worth working to save. It’s precious, rare and incredible when truly valued.

It’s a gift that I am likely never to know.

So . . . .

. . . . if you are married, I am begging you – please realise that you have something so unique that many in the world will never know it. Never have it.

Please work at it.

Communicate with each other.
Be honest with each other.

Find a way to make it work.
