divorce

I may sound a bit ghoulish and a little bitter and pessimistic, but I do love a good dramatic ending to a love story. If it has to end let it go out big.

Perhaps that is why some of my favorite shows are daytime dramas or primetime soap operas. Divorce runs rampant in those sources of entertainment and it's enthralling to watch.

Love can be eternal but it can also wither into a cesspool of seething hate and despair. And it's always fascinating to get to the root of how it all unravels.

The ones to discuss these aspects of love with are the ones with a front row seat to the finish.

I can't wait to get married; mostly because I love a good party. I also the love the festivities and joy, the open bar and the high drama.

Oh my the things I have seen at a wedding. I can't tell you how many times a friend and I have said... "I thought crap like this only happened in the movies?"

There really are some couples who you know are going to last forever and a day.

And then there are those unions when you are even more sure, are going to be a disaster from start to finish. I'd say it's all a 70/30 split... in the disaster direction.

Cheers to love. And let's get smarter about I do's people.

Love is crazy. I've finally come to that conclusion. And marriage, you take your life in your hands and just throw caution to the wind in hopes of survival with that step.

When love falls apart, things can get real messy, real fast. And I've always been stunned by people's behavior when love subsides.

More often than not, it's like they become different people. Sometimes people are beset by tragedy and grief and sometimes people smile wide and move on. It's a coin toss.

But my favorite post-divorce personality has to be the sudden supervillain. Oh honey, watch out for them!

Redditor u/hyperyog wanted to hear all the tea from the divorcees out there by asking:

Divorced Redditors, what is the craziest thing you or your former spouse did after divorce?

Marriage takes WORK. If both parties aren't willing to put in the effort things get bad pretty fast. The fairytale lie we've been fed of happily ever after has made it difficult for people to grasp what real long-term relationships look like. News flash: it gets messy!
