I believe if more couples took time to date each other their would be less divorce, less fighting, less cheating and less frustration. A babysitter costs less than a divorce lawyer so invest in one for a few hours!
Two people choosing to take on life together despite how shitty it may get. To look at your spouse when the lights may get turned off because of late payments and saying "should we do a candle lit dinner" just to get a laugh. When the house is a mess and the kids are arguing and yet you have a moment in the midst of it all where you lock eyes and smile knowing you created all that chaos.
Growing up I always promised myself I would never be a statistic of divorce. No matter the problems, my husband and I would always find a way through it. Truth is, I also didn't know I was destined to marry an alcoholic. Nothing can prepare you for that kind of relationship.
So many times I found find myself defending my business, explaining why all the hours were worth it and trying to win his acceptance of being my behind the scene supporter. Then out of no where we, YES WE, had a revelation. This gig was much better, when we BOTH were doing it together.
In my case, it's that I have the help of an amazing spouse. More often than not female bloggers seem to overlook the active role their husbands play in their success as a Mother. Why is that? I couldn't go through one day without the help of my husband.
