The 3 'Friends' That Will Destroy Your Marriage | Scott Haltzman | YourTango

I loved this article. Mainly because we really forget and don't often realize that some people are toxic to your relationship. Just because they are your friends and family, it does not mean that they want the best for you, some people are not satisfied until your are just as miserable as they are. Not everyone that crosses your path, means well. Make sure to be aware of the warning signs.

You Lost Me...I Found Me...

This was probably my greatest accomplishment this year...walking away completely. Our divorce was officially finalized and I was allowed true happiness. No more insults, put downs, explaining to young kids why daddy was yelling and punching holes in the wall. No more feeling I wasn't good enough, no more sleepless nights...I can finally go into a new year at peace. Looking forward to 2017. I made it!

Just another night with the wasband and I

So yesterday was the first, so that is day the wasband really can't stand me since he has to give me a check. Since our divorce our words have become less and less friendly, which is sad, since we have known each other for over 17 years. So this was last nights convo... Wasband: Have my receipt ready, I am on my way He arrives, I am writing out his receipt Wasband: When are you changing your name? Me: I'm not, the kids are still in school, so it's easier to keep it. Don't worry, you can marry her and she can take your name, it's no big deal. Wasband:  You dropped something So I look down on the ground, turn around in circles, I see nothing. Me: I don't see anything, I don't have a clue what you could be talking about. Wasband: I'm going to back up and shine the lights on it. Walk by the basketball goal, look down. Me: There is nothing there. I can't see a thing. Then the light bulb in my head went on, I see what is going on now. Wasband

Marriage is Teamwork!

One spouse cannot build a marriage alone when the other spouse is committed to destroying it. Marriage works when both husband & wife work together as a team to build their marriage. Teammates do not compete against each other; they complement each other.   Teammates do not pull each other down; they encourage & support each other. Teammates do not fight in the opposites direction; they face the same direction & fight the same opponent together. Marriage teamwork is not about me; it's about us, we & ours. There is no greater example of teamwork than husband & wife. Hand in hand together, let every couple work together for the success of their marriage. Marriage is not a solo performance, it's a duet.
