What do you do when the fairy-tale life you envisioned is not being played out in your marriage? What do you do when issues arise that you never expected? How do you handle the disappointment that accompanies the fact that your spouse isn’t what you thought they would be? Job loss, unsuccessful ventures, weight gain/loss, looks fading, unsettling secrets revealed, dreams that didn’t come true, extended family drama uncovered, financial problems, issues with the children, illness, etc etc…
What do you do next? How do you react?
Can I suggest to you that you can both be broken and yet remain together… “The only way we’ll last forever is broken together”
Listen to this song…let it bless you
What do you think about when you look at me
I know were not the fairytale you dreamed wed be
You wore the veil, you walked the aisle, you took my hand
And we dove into a mystery
How I wish we could go back to simpler times
Before all our scars and all our secrets were in the light
Now on this hallowed ground, weve drawn the battle lines
Will we make it through the night
Its going to take much more than promises this time
Only God can change our minds
Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete
Could we just be broken together
If you can bring your shattered dreams and Ill bring mine
Could healing still be spoken and save us
The only way we’ll last forever is broken together
How it must have been so lonely by my side
We were building kingdoms and chasing dreams and left love behind
Im praying God will help our broken hearts align
And we wont give up the fight

No comment ,married 32 years she divorce me without any knowledge on my part taking everything we worked so hard for. No anger my part i love the women the lord joined me with its life i give up on.
Grant, I cannot begin to understand what you are going through after the ending of a 32 year marriage. I will however plead with you to not give up on life. Although it may not seem like it now, you WILL live through it. I have had some very disappointing situations in my life and I have been very close to ‘throwing up my hands’ …but… You live to see another day. Surround yourself with people who will build you up and not help you wallow in the disappointment. Pray! If you have never prayed, start! Seek professional help if needed. Don’t run from the hurt because running could possibly take you down the wrong road. Instead, work on healing…
We will be praying for you. You WILL get through this
