A Word Not To Use

Posted by Michele Olson
There is one simple thing you can do for you marriage. Don't use the "D" word. You will have times when you are so angry you could "spit" as my Grandma used to say. That's normal. But don't use the "D" word. It's not a word to be taken lightly. It's not something to use as a threat.
I'm talking about Divorce.
People do get divorced. Some divorces are necessary. Abuse should never be tolerated. But, don't use the word lightly. Some couples fall into a pattern of flinging the word out every time there is a disagreement. Don't be one of those couples.
Don't say it. Don't imply it.
It's one of the most destructive things you can do for your relationship. It can cause mistrust and fear for the future. And, don't be dropping the word lightly around your children either.
It's a simple thing, but it's something you can choose not to do.
Don't use the word divorce unless you know it is absolutely necessary.
You'll be doing you and your spouse a favor.
Let us hear your thoughts.
