Encouraging words for a woman going through a divorce

Table of Contents

At any given time along this path of change, you might be feeling scared, confused, angry, sad, and lonely. You might be feelinged-out, numb. And all those plucky words of chin-up encouragement, or flat-lining platitudes friends and family continue to proffer are falling on your deaf and numb and pained ears.

Other times our reaction to another person’s words can take us by surprise. We might find ourselves struck by a truth we feel so deeply, so innately, that we could never express it in words. Great writers make us feel like that. Their words could be our own—they so closely resemble what we think and feel. Such writers give us a voice when we can’t trust ourselves. They make us feel seen and less alone

Below are 40 divorce quotes from inspirational women that will make you feel just that: less alone. If you find a quote that makes you vibe, consider printing and hanging it somewhere you’ll see it every day.

You are not alone. Everyone needs help dealing with divorce and especially, divorce recovery (do you know what “healed” even looks like?) We’ve been there, in that place of not knowing what you don’t know.

Without further ado, here are 40 divorce quotes that you can read on dark days when you need a little camaraderie and inspiration:

1.

2. “You never really know a man until you have divorced him.”
—Zsa Zsa Gabor

3. “There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.”
— C. Joybell C.

4. “I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done.”
— Lucille Ball

5. “When two people decide to get a divorce, it isn’t a sign that they ‘don’t understand’ one another, but a sign that they have, at least, begun to.”

— Gwyneth Paltrow

8.

9. “Do not look for healing at the feet of those who broke you.”

It’s a funny book, and I was very happy that it sold a lot of copies.”
– Nora Ephron on her book, Heartburn

— Liza Caldwell, SAS for Women Cofounder

— Elizabeth Gilbert

31. “The process of discovering with somebody that you love that you don’t work is so painful.”
—Kate Hudson

    The Most Heartfelt Quotes on Divorce

    Source:

    The quotes below, I think, will touch you—regardless of whether you’ve ever gone through a breakup. They speak poignantly of so many common emotions experienced in this typically wrenching process, like grief and mourning (for hopes and dreams that now can never be fulfilled); shock and bewilderment; guilt, regret, and remorse; acrimony and antipathy; and dismay and devastation.

    Splitting up can also wreak havoc on one’s sense of self. It can feel like the ultimate assault—an incalculable insult to who you are—or thought you were. It can make you doubt things that earlier you took for granted. And it can also deal a huge blow to your ability, or willingness, to trust others (and maybe yourself as well). It represents a loss of innocence: a sadder-but-wiser, unasked-for introduction into a world more perplexing and painful than you might ever have imagined.

    Moreover, to add further insult to injury, the matter of dividing property can turn your tragedy almost into a travesty—trivialize your intensely personal drama and eventuate in yet more spousal bickering and discord. And contentious attorneys can further interfere with the all-important grieving process—which, ideally, might finally enable you to “let go” and “move on.”

    In reviewing many hundreds of quotes, I found that I could divide them into three fairly discrete categories (though not without some overlap). The present post, by far the most extensive of the three, focuses on the heartache and heartbreak of divorce. The next part will present some of the wittiest things that have been said about marital breakups. Predictably, this subject has inspired some hilarious one-liners by comedians from Jack Benny to Robin Williams, and beyond.

    The last part of this series will feature what a variety of celebrities have expressed about divorce—or their divorce. And doubtless, there’s a certain “experiential authority” to them. They also possess their own ironic sense of humor, such as Lauren Bacall’s remark that “in Hollywood, an equitable divorce settlement means each party getting 50 percent of the publicity.”

    Anyhow, here are some of the most emotionally laden quotes on the general misery that characterizes so many divorces. I think you’ll find quite a few of them moving—even touchingly eloquent:

    • “It wasn’t about being happy or unhappy. I just didn’t want to be me anymore.” –Sarah Dessen, What Happened to Goodbye
    • “I remember one desolate Sunday night, wondering: Is this how I´m going to spend the rest of my life? Married to someone who is perpetually distracted and somewhat wistful, as though a marvelous party is going on in the next room, which but for me he could be attending.” –Suzanne Finnamore, Split: A Memoir of Divorce
    • “Divorce isn’t such a tragedy. A tragedy’s staying in an unhappy marriage, teaching your children the wrong things about love. Nobody ever died of divorce.” –Jennifer Weiner, Fly Away Home
    • “He went on for some time while I sat listening in silence because I knew he was right, and like two people who have loved each other, however imperfectly, who have tried to make a life together, however imperfectly, who have lived side by side and watched the wrinkles slowly form at the corner of the other’s eyes, and watched a little drop of gray, as if poured from a jug, drop into the other’s skin and spread itself evenly, listening to the other’s coughs and sneezes and little collected mumblings, like two people who’d had one idea together and slowly allowed that idea to be replaced with two separate, less hopeful, less ambitious ideas, we spoke deep into the night, and the next day, and the next night. For forty days and forty nights, I want to say, but the fact of the matter is it only took three. One of us had loved the other more perfectly, had watched the other more closely, and one of us listened and the other hadn’t, and one of us held on to the ambition of the one idea far longer than was reasonable, whereas the other, passing a garbage can one night, had casually thrown it away.” –Nicole Krauss
    • “Grief is the emotional contract of divorce.” –Cheryl Nielsen
    • “Whether life finds us guilty or not guilty, we ourselves know we are not innocent.” –Sándor Márai, Judit… és az utóhang
    • “It takes two to destroy a marriage.” –Margaret Trudeau
    • “People told me not to get married; I didn´t listen. No one ever listens, it seems to me now. Perhaps people should stop trying to communicate. N was not a communicator; early on, I´d insisted on communication. Now I see his point acutely. I would love to have him back to not communicate with me. I would never ask for communication again, I would simply go elsewhere for the deep fish. Also, I´m not at all sure I want to hear what he has to say in this new vista. This works out well.” –Suzanne Finnamore, Split: A Memoir of Divorce
    • “Many married couples separate because they quarrel incessantly, but just as many separate because they were never honest enough or courageous enough to quarrel when they should have.” –Sydney J. Harris
    • “Why did we divorce? I guess you could say we had trouble synchronizing. You know that carnival ride where two cages swing in opposite directions, going higher and higher until they go over the top? That was us. We passed each other all the time, but we never actually stopped in the same place until it was time to get off the ride.” –Diane Hammond, Hannah’s Dream
    • “Daily I walk around my small, picturesque town with a thought bubble over my head: ‘Person Going Through A Divorce.’ When I look at other people, I automatically form thought bubbles over their heads. ‘Happy Couple With Stroller.’ ‘Innocent Teenage Girl With Her Whole Life Ahead Of Her,’ … ‘Young Kids Kissing Publicly.’ Then every so often I see one like me, one of the shambling gaunt women without makeup, looking older than she is: ‘Divorcing Woman Wondering How The Fuck This Happened.'” –Suzanne Finnamore, Split: A Memoir of Divorce
    • “Some people think that it’s holding on that makes one strong; sometimes it’s letting go.” –Unknown
    • “Marriage isn’t a love affair. It isn’t even a honeymoon. It’s a job. A long hard job, at which both partners have to work, harder than they’ve worked at anything in their lives before. If it’s a good marriage, it changes, it evolves, but it goes on getting better. I’ve seen it with my own mother and father. But a bad marriage can dissolve in a welter of resentment and acrimony. I’ve seen that, too, in my own miserable and disastrous attempt at making another person happy. And it’s never one person’s fault. It’s the sum total of a thousand little irritations, disagreements, idiotic details that in a sound alliance would simply be disregarded, or forgotten in the healing act of making love. Divorce isn’t a cure, it’s a surgical operation, even if there are no children to consider.” –Rosamunde Pilcher, “Wild Mountain Thyme”
    • “Divorce is a fire exit. When a house is burning, it doesn’t matter who set the fire. If there is no fire exit, everyone in the house will be burned!” –Mehmet Murat ildan
    • “The leaving happened slowly, gradually, as these things do, and before we knew it, we were lost to each other, as if a magician had whisked a cloth off the table, leaving the dishes there, jolted. And when we looked back it was all a blur, time on fast forward, hurtling to an inevitable conclusion.” –Kathryn Stern, Another Song About the King
    • “Losing a mate to death is devastating but it’s not a personal attack like divorce. When somebody you love stops loving you and walks away, it’s an insult beyond comparison.” –Sue Merrell, Great News Town
    • “The divorce papers remained unopened in the crisp yellow envelope. He had thrown it on his desk without a backward glance. Between his lashes, his dark chocolate eyes burned with fury but there was something else in the depths that she hadn’t seen in a long time, passion.” –Suzan Battah, “Rekindled Flame”
    • “I love you as the mother of my child”: the kiss of death. Mother of His Child: demotion. I am beginning to see this truism: Mothers are not always wives. I have been stripped of a piece of self.” –Suzanne Finnamore, Split: A Memoir of Divorce
    • “How can I explain to her that I just can’t come home? It’s too soon, it’s too late; I do want to be with Helen every second of the day but at the same time I don’t want to be with her at all. I want to have back what I felt at the beginning. I could no more leave her then than leave my arms or legs. / How do you find the beginning, though? There are no roads or signs. You start to doubt it even exists.” –Cath Crowley, The Life and Times of Gracie Faltrain
    • “An unresolved issue will be like a cancer with the potential to spread into other areas of your relationship, eroding the joy, lightness, love, and beauty.” –Joyce Vissell
    • “Even the jerks earn some of our affection. We can be glad they’re gone and yet still mourn the good parts.” –Shannon Hale, Midnight in Austenland
    • “Together we agree that there are few tableaus more pathetic than a woman poring over a plethora of self-help books, while in a small café across town her husband is sharing a bottle of Pouilly-Fuissé and fettucini Alfredo with a beautiful woman, fondling her fishnet knee and making careful plans to escape his life.” –Suzanne Finnamore, Split: A Memoir of Divorce
    • “… you’re not dead—you’re dormant.” –Cheryl Nielsen
    • “What’s the truth? The truth is what happened to you and him or her, over the years, and what didn’t happen. The truth is what you said and didn’t say, how much you tried, how you changed, and whether you were lucky. I believe in luck. I think luck plays a huge part in success. Or failure. In the end, who cares about the truth? You still end up divorced. Finally, the biggest asshole wins. Sort of. At least the biggest asshole takes home the most stuff. If you consider this winning then have at it. You’re an asshole.” –Margaret Overton, Good in a Crisis: A Memoir
    • “Divorce is the one human tragedy that reduces everything to cash.” –Rita Mae Brown
    • “Divorce is one of the most financially traumatic things you can go through. Money spent on getting mad or getting even is money wasted.” –Richard Wagner
    • “Divorced men are more likely to meet their car payments than their child support obligations.” –Susan Faludi
    • “I don’t miss him, I miss who I thought he was.” –Unknown

    17 Surprisingly Insightful Quotes To Live Your Marriage By

    tumblr.com

    Being married is work. That’s not to say that it’s not incredible, rewarding, exciting, and valuable. But it’s work. Just like any relationship. You’re going to go through times where it feels like the easiest, happiest thing in the world. But you’re also going to go through times where you look at the other person and feel like you hardly recognize them. And that’s okay— because that’s when the work comes in.

    Because if you think of a marriage as a partnership, then you remember that there are going to be times when one partner feels stronger than the other. When one needs more. When one’s struggling. When you just disagree. But when you’re finding your partner challenging or the relationship needs more tending, just remember all of the times when you’ve been the one in need. The difficult one. The one causing problems. It’s a back-and-forth.

    So make sure that you do the relationship upkeep that your marriage needs. Check in with each other. Be kind to each other. And don’t assume you know what the other is thinking. By keeping an eye on your relationship and making sure that you’re tending to it every single day, you’ll be in a much stronger position when life happens. And life will happen.

    Luckily, so many people have been through this before— so there’s a huge pot of wisdom to draw from. These quotes about marriage will be helpful reminders of what you love about being married and why you committed in the first place. Just keep trying.

    By Ashley McIlwain

    At every corner there lurks danger. The potential for problems and conflict seem to pepper the future of our marriage like a field of landmines. One misstep and everything blows up in front of us. It can seem that there’s no winning at times when it comes to our marriage.

    This may seem pessimistic, but there is certainly truth to it. We have a real enemy out there, Satan, who roams around seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). God had big plans for us, and He knew that we needed a partner in crime, which is why He created husband and wife. Out of all of His creation, there was one thing He said was not good, and that was for man to be alone (Genesis 2:18). Marriage was the pinnacle of His handiwork’s perfection. Marriage was the exclamation point on His creation. And that’s why Satan immediately went to work on it.

    I find it profoundly interesting that out of everything God created, there was one thing that Satan went after to destroy … marriage (Genesis 3). If nothing else, this should tell us of the importance of marriage … of its centrality and vitality to God’s plan. Nobody tries to destroy something of insignificance. But I believe Satan knew that if he wanted to destroy God’s creation it started with the heart of it, so he pulled on the very string that he thought would unravel the very fabric of God’s handiwork – marriage.

    Marriage has been under attack since its inception, which is why it should not come as a surprise that marriage is still under attack. What was Satan’s tactic? To bring divisiveness to husband and wife. To pit them against one another and to separate them from God. He knew that when unity was broken in a marriage, he could then have the husband and wife working against one another instead of working together.

    Why would he do that? Why does it matter? Well, Mark 3:25 says, “If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.” If Satan destroys marriages, he brings down the home, and when he brings down our homes, he begins destroying the heartbeat of God’s creation. Divided from one another and separated from God, destruction is imminent.

    We must be aware of both the importance of our marriage and that there is an enemy out there plotting against us. Wanting us to fail at our marriage. The only way to win a battle, let alone a war, is to know that we are in one.

    The enemy isn’t your spouse. Yes, they may frustrate you, hurt you, and/or fail you. They may annoy and irritate you. They may make missteps, but they aren’t your enemy. You are a team, and a great one at that.

    There are times where you will be tempted to give up. To walk away. To feel that your marriage isn’t worth fighting for anymore. That your husband or wife is hopeless. That things won’t change or can’t change. That you’ve done all that you can, but it’s just beyond repair. Most couples will experience those feelings at some point in their marriage, but I would encourage you to refuse to give up on your marriage and your spouse.

    In a study conducted by a team of leading family scholars headed by University of Chicago sociologist Linda Waite, the researchers found that two-thirds of unhappily married spouses who stayed married reported that their marriages were happy five years later. Additionally, the most unhappy marriages reported the most dramatic turnarounds: among those who rated their marriages as very unhappy, almost eight out of ten who avoided divorce were happily married five years later.

    Giving up on your marriage, despite how it may seem or feel, is not the easy answer. The best way to overcome a problem is to work through it. And in marriage, you’ve got a partner to help you do just that. When you remove each other as the source of the problem, you can then begin to identify the real problem and work toward a real resolution.

    Dr. John Gottman, a leader in marriage research, reports that 69% of issues in marriage are not solved but rather managed. The reality is, in marriage you have two people who think differently, feel differently, and perceive differently. That is bound to create issues and difficulties. We have to stop attacking one another for those differences and starting working together to resolve and manage.

    Over the course of my husband’s and my marriage, we could probably pick out four or five main problems that we’ve had to continually tackle. They creep up in different ways, but they are rooted in the same core issues. We’ve learned to manage and continue to work at them together. Unity is our best friend.

    Satan would want you to believe that your marriage is plagued with too many problems. That your spouse is not worth the effort. That your marriage is beyond repair. He loves to divide and conquer.

    These are lies though. Just like he lied to Adam and Eve in the garden to destroy the perfect paradise God had established, he is lying to you. There is no perfect or easy marriage. They are all hard work, and they all have problems to overcome. The question isn’t if you’ll have problems, but rather how you will tackle the ones you are certain to encounter.

    We all have a tendency to be blinded and overcome by our emotions and by the immediate future. We can only see what’s right in front of us. It’s like a brick wall has been placed in front of us, and the long-term future is hidden. If we just climb over that wall though, there is a whole future ahead of us. We need to fix our eyes on something other than our immediate circumstances.

    2 Corinthians 4:18 says, “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” Hebrews 12:1-2 tells us to “throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” We cannot become overcome by the here and now and miss out on that which is still to come.

    If you’re at a point of hopelessness in your marriage … if you’ve tried it all … if you feel helpless, then lift your eyes up. Where does your help come from? Your help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth (Psalm 121:1-2)! That’s a promise you can cling to and count on.

    If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my life’s journey, it’s that the biggest storms, the darkest days, the deepest pit appears before the biggest blessings arrive. Just when I want to give up, when I think I can’t take one more step, when I don’t have an ounce of strength left, God carries me through. He lifts me up out of my pit of despair and places my feet firmly (Psalm 40:2). Even when it seems like it, He never leaves me or fails me (Deuteronomy 31:8).

    Olympic hurdler, Lolo Jones recently said this of persevering:

    I will stay on course. Sometimes when I am running a hard work out I get discouraged. I begin to doubt if I can finish. The pain seeps into my lungs, my legs and eventually my heart feels like it will burst. Same as in life when you hit hurdles to your goals. You get weary from trying, your heart has so much pain and begins to think it will fail… As I thought about the hardest workouts and races in my life, I know it is always most difficult right before the finish line and accomplishing what I thought I could not. So I will stay the course. I encourage you to do so as well.

    Stay on course friends. Don’t give up on your marriage. Your spouse is not the enemy. There is hope, and more than that, there is a Helper out there that you can call upon to hold your hand and carry you through this season of despair (Psalm 46:1). Don’t grow weary (Galatians 6:9). Your marriage is important, and it’s worth the fight!

    When you’re at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. –Theodore Roosevelt

    32 Famous Quotes About the Joy of Marriage

    Share

    What does the word ‘marriage’ mean to you? To some people it is a wonderful celebration of love and commitment; to others it is a ball and chain. Some people have positive reactions to the notion of marriage, whereas others use humour and sarcasm to express what they really think about it. Here are some famous quotes about marriage from literature and art, and my thoughts on what they might mean.

    “It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”

    ― Friedrich Nietzsche

    When you enter into something as lifelong as ‘marriage’ is intended to be, a genuine connection between two people, that can withstand all challenges big and small, is so important! If you and your partner are real friends, then you will have the respect and consideration needed in order to make it work through the tough times; and you will still be around to really appreciate all of the good times too!

    “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”

    ― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

    Well, if a man has everything else he wants and needs in life, then isn’t it safe to assume that a wife is the one thing that will complete him? I like the old fashioned innocence of this quote. I like the simplicity of the idea. Nowadays marriage isn’t expected of couples, and we like to think that we can be just as happy alone, with friends and work to fill our lives. But are we losing sight of what is most important in leading a happy and fulfilled life? Perhaps it is not necessarily marriage that we need, but it is certainly important to consider the fact that having someone special to share a life with may be what helps to allow us to feel like we have achieved everything we needed to achieve in this life, and possible the next.

    “Love is an act of endless forgiveness; a tender look which becomes a habit.”

    ― Peter Ustinov

    Isn’t this quote quite beautiful? When you love someone completely, maybe it doesn’t matter who is right and who is wrong. What is “right” and “wrong” after all? Maybe what is more important is being able to adapt oneself to become the other half of the person you love, sharing their flaws and perfections as your own. This is a quote, which presents the notion of “habit”, which is so often depicted in a negative light when talking about marriage and long-term relationships, as a good thing. The “tender look, which becomes a habit” refers to a wonderful sense of familiarity and acceptance. Now that is what true love should look like!

    “Happiness (is) only real when shared.”

    ― Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

    If you have ever read this book or seen the film, you will probably feel the significance of this quote far more deeply. It will resonate with you, because you will have travelled the protagonist’s journey alongside him. Sometimes you might think that life would be simpler, or that you’re are so fed of the modern world you live in that you just want o escape all of the pretence and live your life in some kind of solitude. But the truth is that human beings need other human beings to bring meaning to their lives. If you need one reason to live, that reason is likely to be another living being. People get married and suddenly they have a purpose, a journey to follow, a life to build. People get married to share things with another person. So could marriage be the key to happiness, if you know how to appreciate what it is really about?

    “You know it’s never fifty-fifty in a marriage. It’s always seventy-thirty, or sixty-forty. Someone falls in love first. Someone puts someone else up on a pedestal. Someone works very hard to keep things rolling smoothly; someone else sails along for the ride.”

    ― Jodi Picoult, Mercy

    This is a very cynical insight into married life, but perhaps there is a lot of truth in it. The scales always tend to tip more in one direction than the other. This is what life is all about though – unpredictability and change. One day you might be head over heels in love with someone who doesn’t feel quite so intensely, but it is just because all human beings are different ad unique. It may take the other person longer to develop those kinds of feeling, and maybe a year down the line the tables change and it is your turn to feel more grounded so that you can support the insecurities of your partner who is experience all of the feelings you had back when you first met. Marriage, and relationship in general are about teamwork, and one team member is always going to be stronger than another, and as time goes by and situations change, those roles may reverse. It is good, because you can constantly learn from one another!

    “Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.”

    ― Albert Einstein

    This quote reminds me of the fact that too often we have unrealistic expectations of our partners, and then when we are disappointed we project blame onto the other person. But that isn’t fair. People, especially people who have married another person and committed for life, need to be more realistic, and more forgiving, not of the other person, but of themselves for expecting too much!

    “The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing – and then marry him.”

    ― Cher

    Don’t you just love those sarcastic comments women make about marriage? Isn’t it fun to refer to men in a derogatory manner because they are never what we want them to be in the end? This quote by Cher makes me think about the over-importance we place how perfect we think or want the men we fall for to be. We women are the cause of our own cynicism about marriage!

    “Getting divorced just because you don’t love a man is almost as silly as getting married just because you do. ”

    ― Zsa Zsa Gabor

    What an interesting way to think about divorce! Are we giving up on marriage when we shouldn’t? Are we missing the point of marriage? Is marriage really about love? If not, then what else is it about, and why are so many people so disillusioned about the meaning of marriage? We are living in an age where it is easy to give up on thing, change direction, reinvent ourselves, become anonymous, and renounce all sense of responsibility. Is it right? I’m not so sure.

    “Love, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage.”

    ― Ambrose Bierce, The Unabridged Devil’s Dictionary

    This quote suggests that love is an elixir, and marriage is sobering. Marriage is reality. Love is an illusion. Marriage is what separates the weak from the strong. If you get married you are proving to the world that you take yourself and your relationship seriously, you are stating that it means something, and you are challenging the strength of your relationship, and essentially the love that brought you together. Are you confident that the love between you and your partner is for real? Maybe you will only know the truth after you have been married?

    “Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.”

    ― Katharine Hepburn

    Whoever coined the saying “Women are from Venus, men are from mars” had a point! There are so many obvious differences between the ways in which the male and female mind works, and yet we still don’t seem to be able to understand one another! If it is that difficult for us to be more sympathetic to our opposing sex, then perhaps it really would be a better option to just live next door to our spouses and visit now and then! Maybe just come together at dinner-time?

    “If I get married, I want to be very married.”

    ― Audrey Hepburn

    This is such a sweet quote. The enthusiasm is inspiring, and it makes you think of times when young girls dreamt of being brides and living happily ever after with their new husbands. Should we be embracing marriage in this way more? Maybe if we did then couples would be focusing on getting the most out of being married, rather than allowing things to fall apart when they don’t seem to be working. If you are married, keep hold of that initial enthusiasm you had! Don’t let the dream die.

    “Marriage can wait, education cannot.”

    ― Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns

    It is important to be able to prioritise things in our lives, and understand that not everything has to happen immediately. Say you meet someone and fall in love, why do you have to get married immediately? People spend such a lot of money on weddings, but could that money be spent in more useful ways that will benefit you right now? Just because you don’t get married immediately, it doesn’t mean that you risk not getting married, so why not wait, and focus instead on the things that affect your life right now? In fact the longer you wait, the more likely you will be to know whether it is right for you, and if you are right for each other. Many people get married quickly because they fear something – perhaps they fear missing out on a good opportunity, or losing someone who could make a real difference to their life? If they are the one though, they will still be there, and in the meantime it is up to you to focus on making a difference to your own life. Get that education, go travelling, take the job, let your relationship grow stronger, and feel more confident in your partner as each day goes by and they are still there!

    “I know enough to know that no woman should ever marry a man who hated his mother.”

    ― Martha Gellhorn, Selected Letters

    This is an interesting observation. If a man hates his mother, you may want to wonder how that relationship has affected him. What are his views on women? What are his feelings about building a family? Does he respect the women in his life or does he have a problem with women in positions of authority. Always be aware of how a man who hates his mother interacts with other women. Is there any projection going on? On the other hand, after some careful observation you may learn that he is perfectly normal and a better man for not loving his mother in the way society thinks a man should love his mother. As long as the observations are being made! Never overlook anything when making a decision as important as marrying someone!

    “Marriage is a fine institution, but I’m not ready for an institution.”

    ― Mae West, The 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said

    Some people view married life, as something only a crazy person would choose. These people are often single or divorced. Don’t concern yourself too much with the opinions of people whose circumstances are entirely different from your own though. The mistake is in making comparisons, you see. You should think of your marriage or relationship as being completely unique, and not like anyone else’s relationship or marriage. That way you will never be at the mercy of other people’s judgments, and if they insist on placing their judgements upon you, you can just ignore them because they simply don’t apply!

    “Why does a woman work ten years to change a man, then complain he’s not the man she married?”

    ― Barbra Streisand

    The answer, dear Barbara, is that women are very, very complicated creatures indeed. Men will never, ever live up to a woman’s expectation. This is mostly because her expectations will continually change. The only way a man can appease his wife, is to ignore her complaints and just be himself, at least then he will give her something to complain about – because let’s face it, according to Streisand’s quote, women enjoy the act of complaining, it is what being a wife is all about apparently.

    “Catholics don’t believe in divorce. We do believe in murder. There’s always Confession, after all.

    –Brianna Fraser to Roger MacKenzie”

    ― Diana Gabaldon, An Echo in the Bone

    Ha! I like it. There is certainly a lot of hypocrisy, not only in religion, but in marriage and everything to do with life and the ways in which human beings choose to live it. But for some reason this is the only way we understand our world. If everything were perfect we would have nothing to figure out after all, and nothing to oppose. Take “marriage” for example, how many contradictions and hypocrisies can you think of to do with marriage? Well, there are far too many to think about, yet people continue to marry, divorce and marry again. Our kind is just like that.

    “Marriage is not a process for prolonging the life of love, sir. It merely mummifies its corpse.”

    ― P.G. Wodehouse, The Small Bachelor

    Yikes – this is a quote that really expresses the cynicism involved in many a person’s interpretation of marriage. Is marriage really just a way to set something in stone? Is it just a way to preserve an obscure notion like “love’, that is meant to be a wonderful and intense experience, yet fleeting? If so, then is this why so many marriages are fleeting? If love is a wild bird, and we want to catch it and cage it so that we can enjoy it forever until it dies, isn’t that entirely selfish? Then perhaps too many people are marrying for selfish reasons too. Are we that afraid of losing love that we have to contain it? And in effect we have to contain another human being, and lock them into a bond that is validated mainly by the approval of society. It leads to wonder if marriage is actually what is preventing human beings from staying together naturally, or knowing who they are really meant to share their lives with. My greatest fear is being stuck for the rest of my life with the wrong person.

    I’ll Take Your Man! 10 Ways to Tell She’s Trying to Steal Your Boo

    Source: Vladimir Vladimirov / Getty

    We all know this woman well. She’s your man’s co-worker, a neighbor, one of his “homegirls” or even one of your girlfriends. She appears friendly and genuine at first, but most of us can see her for what she really is – a woman plotting on your man. She’s biding her time, waiting for you to mess up or for your man to display a moment of weakness before she makes her move. She watches him, studies him and tries to formulate a plan to get close to your man.

    I know what you’re thinking – she can’t steal a man unless he allows himself to be stolen. This is true. Men can make their own decisions and if they fall victim to a woman who is looking to get at them, good riddance – you don’t want that man anyway. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t guard your relationship against the women out there who are looking to destroy your relationship based on their own selfish needs. These women are not who they appear to be on the outside, and your man may even be oblivious to her wicked ways and think that her “interest” is simply platonic. Not sure if this woman is trying to steal your man? Watch out for these keys signs that she just might be a buzzard circling her prey.
