Advice from a Divorced Man

While checking on my Facebook account this morning, I came across a post shared by a friend.  It was entitled, "Beautiful Advice from A Divorced Man After 16 Years of Marriage".  I wonder what made him write that blog.  And I wonder who was at fault..

I do agree it was indeed a beautiful advice, not only for men but for women as well.  And one thing that struck me most recently (and was reminded again from that blog) is that, relationships need to be constantly nurtured.  Each one MUST make an effort to make the relationship work and must always bear in mind that a broken relationship may start from a "simple" misunderstanding.

But I would like to make it clear.  I did not learn this advice from my failed marriage.  It is only applicable to people who are both in love with each other and are sincerely committed to do so until the end. :)

Surviving a One-Month Marriage...

It was only this afternoon that I was able to watch the uncut interview of Aiai delas Alas on Youtube.  Too bad, she fell prey to the hands of a user, a materialistic opportunist and womanizer at that.  I admire Aiai for being courageous enough to get out of marriage that soon.  She is still lucky that she did not prolong and waste much of her life being in a hopeless relationship with a guy who just took advantage of her.  Unlike me...

My Major, Major Mistake...

If I were to be asked by somebody (who may not be as handsome as William Baldwin) with this question: "What is one big mistake that you made in your life, and what did you do to make it right?", I would have said, "my major, major problem, err mistake, was being married to my ex-husband."  To make it right? it's my decision to end the marriage. that's all. thank you.

Venus Raj is lucky and at 22, is young enough not to experience those nightmares that I went through.  Good for her...

I always believe that married couples who are in the verge of separating need help.  Marriage counseling plays a significant role in patching a wounded marriage.  But a couple need to be humble first by acknowledging that indeed, there is a marital problem and BOTH parties must be willing to solve it.

In today's issue of Philippine Star, one of the featured articles that caught my attention was that entitled, "Retrouvaille program saves many marriages".  Accordingly, the Retrouvaille program, the Catholic ministry designed to help trouble married couples renew their relationship, has already saved many marriage.  Retrouvaille is a French word which means to rediscover.

If interested, there will be a Retrouvaille weekend seminar on August 14-15, 2010 at the Mother of Mercy Spiritual Center in Tagaytay.   One may contact Fr. Dave Clay at tel nos. 098-902-0511 and 525-0308, Mar at 0927-315-3765 or Fe at 0918-918-7670.  All calls will be held in strictest confidence.
