Interesting Article

I found this interesting and thought you guys might too.

Re: Interesting Article

  • That was interesting.  I don't know how I would react in a similar situation, to be honest, so I try not to judge.

  • It is certainly an odd take on the circumstance. I think therapy, with a honest-to-goodness awesome counselor, is statistically a much better choice. This woman isn't a saint - she must hold something against him for being absent for 6 months. And what if he had been sleeping around while she was so sure he was going to come home? STD's are nothing to play with. And maybe I'm still in that euphoric stage of marriage, but if William is having problems feeling inadequate in life, I'd hope he'd open up to me - I'm his helper and he's my helper. I'm glad life worked out for her, but it just sounds like a bad idea.

    I'm kind of with you on this one.  I realize everyone deals with things differently but you don't really have the option to not communicate with your spouse for 6 months.  That just isn't how marriage works.  Whether you are a good communicator or not, you still need to be communicating with your spouse and in this case, he wasn't communicating with her at all.  I'm  pretty sure that I wouldn't react the same way she did.  Certainly not for 6 months.  It was definitely an interesting article and I'm glad things worked out for her, but I don't think that is the norm.

  • I do agree with y'all. I wasn't necessarily saying that I agreed with her philosophy, though I wasn't sure how to describe it so I just labeled it as "interesting." But I think you nailed it about how important it is to communicate. That may have worked considering the man's personality, but still, I would have tried a different approach myself.
