Marriage is Fragile
I'm a Jon & Kate Plus 8 fan. This reality show chronicles the life of a family with twin girls, and sextuplets. It's good television A) because the kids are ridiculously adorable B) because the mother is entertainingly neurotic C) because the family is amazing.
The kids are so polite and personable, and the parents are so good with them. I feel like I'm getting free future parenting lessons, and would quickly give gold medals to each parent for their abilities.
Just last year, Jon & Kate traveled to Hawaii to renew their vows. Today, they admit to heading for a possible divorce.
After watching these people for so long, you do feel like you know them. And I was quite angry/sad/hurt when I found out about it. A couple of days separated from that, and now I'm just left with the understanding that marriage is fragile.
Our emotions are powerful. Our memories can be selective. And just like, something so beautiful can be lost. Keep your guard up.
