Taking and Break and What it Actually Means

Taking a break doesn't always mean, "Let’s break up". Sometimes it just means let's take some time to ourselves to figure things out separately and then come back and see if/how we can move forward.

I don't want to be called "The Wife", unless I really am.

After almost 8 years of being in a relationship, I am not married. I am not mad, but don't call me "The Wife" My significant other, my soulmate and my best friend.

   Divorce was never a word in my vocabulary.The concept of my marriage not working out never once crossed my mind.I never gave thought to not trusting my husband, not trusting our vows.I never imagined I would become a single mother or have a reason to read the entire collection of Mars vs. Venus books, keeping them in my nightstand drawer for easy access reference in order to understand men.
