A Victim’s Voice

September 7, 2012

I’ve had an epiphany (or nine) of sorts. There are a few things that have been clarified in my head over the past few weeks and I felt the need to put them down on paper, or rather in this electronic public diary of sorts, just in case the general goings on of life cloud […]

I Won’t Disappear

August 7, 2012

Breaking cycles is a hard thing to do. My parents divorced when I was ten and, though the overwhelming sigh of relief that came over our house after the divorce was refreshing, certainly, no one enters into marriage to fail. My parents married young, still teenagers. My dad was an alcoholic and at the core of […]

Facebook Stalking Your Ex

August 1, 2012

Two years ago, my husband’s ex girlfriend, whom he had dumped years before, reached out to him on Facebook. She sent him a friend request, which he had declined (on 3 different occasions!). Frustrated, she sent him a message saying she didn’t understand why he was ignoring her. They hadn’t seen each other in 9 years at that […]

She Speaks: Sex After Divorce

July 24, 2012

My marriage ended toward the end of my pregnancy with my second child. Not ideal timing by any circumstances, but unfortunately, it’s somewhat frowned upon to chain someone to the house and force them to stay with you. So when my (now ex-) husband decided he wanted to leave me (along with our daughter and […]

50 Shades Of Marital Upheaval

June 20, 2012

What’s the biggest literary sensation to sweep the nation since Harry Potter started doing magic to our brains in 1997? Well, don’t tell your mother or your English teacher, but one of the contenders is definitely porn-like in nature. Actually, go ahead and tell them, because chances are, they have the very same porn hidden […]

What Is Polyamory?

June 18, 2012

We’ve seen Sister Wives and Big Love. That type of multiple wives relationship is called polygamy. And while I couldn’t do it, the thought of a Sister Wife is tempting. I would hope my husband could score a Sister Wife that loves putting away the laundry, having sex with him on the weekdays, and pulling the weeds. Polyamory […]

Saying You Are Sorry…Hardest Thing Ever

June 15, 2012

If you’re in a committed relationship, there’s a good chance you end up spending a lot of time with your significant other. If you spend a lot of time with another person, you and that other person are likely to get into arguments. No one agrees with someone 100% of the time. Apologies are going […]

I Chose To Be Single, Rather Than Settle

June 12, 2012

“You totally have a type. You always crush on the smart, super-involved boys.” “Guys don’t know if you like them or not because you’re so friendly to everyone.” “Sweetie, does [Current Crush] know you don’t like football? Maybe you shouldn’t mention that.” “Maybe you’re too picky.” These comments, and many other variations, have been lobbed […]

Why We Chose A Las Vegas Destination Wedding

May 21, 2012

Shaun and I were married in a church and had a big reception with three hundred guests.  We “did” the traditional wedding thing. Heck, it was traditional all the way down to being whisked off to the airport for our honeymoon-red-eye flight as the drunk reception goers stood in the banquet hall’s parking lot and bid us […]

For As Long As We Both Shall Get Along Nicely

May 3, 2012

I’m an escalator. People can’t ride me to get to the second floor of the mall, but I’m one who tends to take a small argument and throw it out of hand rather quickly. A conversation with my husband can easily go something like this: Me: Hey, do you want to go see Hunger Games […]
