God gave up and released me from the Baptist. We then went to the Charismatics. They were much more pleasant. We volunteered to take a course in counseling given by a radio preacher. It took a whole Saturday. Then every Sunday night we brought our little ones and put them to sleep on the floor of the radio station while we manned the phone lines. It was a trial by fire. You name it, this guy would preach on it, then two hours of call in.
Every thing you could imagine, "My husband is beating me. I'm afraid and I don't know what to do." "My wife's left me and I can't stop crying!" The worst was when he would preach on incest. The lines would light up continuously for the entire time and well after the show was over. We got good in a hurry. We had the numbers for all the things like women's shelters and social services. The whole thing ended one day when the preacher had a big blowup with his wife and got a divorce.

I noticed when people around us had trouble with their marriage and they went to a Christian Councilor they got divorced real fast. We had been married ten years, my how time flies, we though we had it figured out. People asked us how to stay married. We told them "People fight over Money Sex and Children." and its a fact. We really didn't fare any better than the other guys. We at least could buy the troubled couple six months, sometimes a year, time to work out the hard problems but most didn't make it.

Yada yada yada. Been married twenty years. Moved on to the Anglicans. Its kinda Catholic Lite. Very peaceful. Ive noticed that this story lacks a certain time stability so if you hear me tell it again and the story changes well too bad its as accurate as I can remember at the time. Marrage at twenty years is so different. I can't explain it too you, you just have to be there. We think we are old and wise but we really arn't.

Yada, oh you know. Married thirty plus years, Mary goes through "the change". Wayne starts smoking again after quitting for 13 years. Cigarettes save Wayne's life. Without them I would have jumped off a bridge. By the grace of God we hung in there. A few years passed and "the change" subsided.

Next summer it will be 38 years (I count the three years we lived together but Mary doesn't.). My advice to you is do the best you can because I have concluded that a long marriage happens by the grace of God. Yea its best not to fight, but everyone, even me can get a divorce. I think that knowledge, that it can happen to you, is what will keep you working on your relationship and a little prayer might not hurt. If you got divorced, try again. Don't think that people that have been married a long time have it figured out because they don't. Its a gift and God gives his gifts freely to those that ask.

So there it is. So easy and so hard.

wayne5 finished.

Thank you Wayne. I enjoyed reading that. I think part of the puzzle is recognizing your own short comings and factoring them in to any disagreement.

Thank you Jay. When you tell a politician that he's been courageous, it means that what he's done will lose him the next election. I wonder what "candid" means. rofl.gif

Wayne, your story was really really enjoyable to read.

Lately, my attention span has been close to zero, but you expressed yourself in such a way that it was easy to read kept me reading to the very end.

Bravo!
