I love you LG!
A few posts back, I confessed something HUGE.
Yep, LG and I are in marriage counseling.
I would like to take this opportunity to clarify a few things,
as LG was a little (o.k. A LOT) worried about telling the world.
And even though I got his permission for disclosure
way before I even considered writing the post,
he was still very skittish about everybody knowing.
In fact, he checked my comments hourly for the two days after the post.
He was convinced that I would get no comments at all
because people would feel awkward with the topic.
So, even if you feel awkward about it,
I beg of you, support my hubby and leave a comment.
Or don't. (He'll get over it)
LG wanted me to make it known that
just because we are in counseling,
he and I were never really on the virge of divorce.
O.k. there may have been a week or two there a few years back,
like the first and second year of law school.
(But I am sure most couples are on the brink of disaster during law school.)
Or I may have entertained divorce frequently our whole first year of our marriage,
but recently we have been mostly happy.
We just started having many experiences that our own weaknesses
were becoming very evident.
Our own "baggage" was affecting us way too much,
and it was eating away at us individually
and at our marriage.
We wanted to change the cycles.
So, we went with an expert.
Because we are humble and smart.
Not because we are weak or ignorant.
One of the first things we learned in therapy is
that we need to not point fingers at each other.
I read this quote this morning and thought it very appropriate.
"A marriage is always made up of two people
who are prepared to swear that only the other one snores."
And after months of counseling,
I still say with a sure knowledge that LG snores
way longer and louder than me.
But, I can now also admit, that I snore too.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
And, I'm not pointing fingers.
I have video.
