Am I alone????????

In my complete and utter disbelief that Seal and Heidi Klum are getting a divorce. I'm not shocked that they are splitting up and I'm not obsessed with celebrities, but it was their press-release that shocked me. The first article I read about their split stated that they still completely love each other, but that they had experienced a really tough year and had decided that it would be best to divorce. Really???? A tough year?????

Now I don't know any couple who have had a completely stress-free marriage. Do you??? John and I don't fight and we love each other immensely, but that doesn't mean that our marriage is perfect. But being married and declaring this before God, family and friends means being there during the good and the bad; the healthy and sickly (is that a word? LOL!!). You don't just walk out when things get rough.

There are exceptions to this. If infidelity is involved or you find out what you know about your spouse is a bunch of lies. But other than those occasions, you pull your big girl panties on and your boots up and you work through the tough times. I thank God everyday that he gave me the perfect man for me.


  1. divorce is running rampit... almost ALL my friends who married after me, are divorced already. And most were only married for 3 years MAX, if that... some divorced for a good reason... physical abuse, etc... others not so much. People forget how to communicate.... and just give up. I know marriage is not easy, we at times didnt think we'd make it... but Praise God we stayed together because now our marriage is stronger than its ever been and we have 3 beautiful children.

    Any who.. yea... so sad to see that happen...

  2. ummm, I LOVE THESE PHOTOS! you are beautiful and glowing and so happy. the look on your husband's face is priceless - as well as yours!!
    thanks so much for sharing.
    anddd...i'm just hearing (from you) about heidi klum and seal!! what the heck?! that makes me sad. i thought they seemed like they got it right (for most celebrity marriages)
    you are so right, joy!!
    there were some crazy CRAZY times in the past few years with steve. times where he'd be so down on himself he'd ask me how i could be with him.
    and i told him, "unless i find out you're cheating on me (for which then i will chop parts off)" i will be with you always!!
    thank you for this post.
    you're amazing!
    so much love <3

  3. I feel the same way. I think celebrities are just people who live for that one moment of "falling in love." and don't know how to deal with true love. They think that everything should be perfect all the time. I am glad you guys don't argue but I am not ashamed to say that Chad and I argue and I think it is a good thing. You argue, you have rough times, but you know that at the end of the day you love each other and go to bed having worked it all out!
