Yesterday I wrote about friends giving terrible advice to their “friend. Never take relationship ADVICE from these people“
I left off when the married woman left to take a phone call from her husband.
As she looked at her phone, she told her friends that it is her husband. Her friends rolled their eyes as if they were bothered by the phone call. When she stood up to talk to her husband in peace, the divorced Lady said, “GOOD LUCK, and remember to let him know he isn’t your father.” The never-married Lady cosigned with her friend and said, “don’t let him break you.”
She walked away, ready to win a battle created by her and her friends. But, on the other end, was a poor guy that wasn’t prepared for what they had pumped into her mind.
Meanwhile, at the table, set the ladies.
Divorced Lady, we’ll call her DL.
Single Lady, we’ll call her SL.
DL~ I see her marriage going down the same road as mine.
SL~ See, this is why I’m single; I will not put up with a man calling me and demanding that I tell him my every move.
DL~ Their marriage will never work and wait until they throw kids into the equation.
SL~ I am so happy to be SINGLE.
I made the mistake of having friends that weren’t married. So I was tugged in all directions; they wanted me to have drinks, lunch, dinner, see movies, and even girl trips. And here I am, married with three kids and a career.
Something has to give because the thought of managing my home, keeping my kids on the right path while maintaining a bond with my husband is a full-time job! I’m not, nor will I ever be willing to forgo my family life so that I can hang out with friends.
I value having positive friends in my life, but my family will always come FIRST. Going on vacations with the girls is something that I look forward to when my kids live on their own, but until then, an occasional lunch and dinner with friends will have to do. And for me it’s helpful to have friends, regardless of marital status that respect my marriage and my family.
So for now, I’m all about family, family, family and keeping a hardcore bond with my leading man.
My opinion is just that… it’s my opinion, and I would love to hear all of yours.
