Earlier this year I wrote an essay, mainly for women, about meeting a single dad’s children and using it as a litmus test of his commitment.
My friend Tara, from Relative Evolutions, wrote a recent essay on how marriage is work. She ends with this question,
“Marriage is work. So why do we congratulate those who leave a dead-end job while shaming those who leave a dead-end marriage?”
It’s an excellent thought and worthy of a response.
