Some believe you must choose. Happiness or Marriage?
In the article When Overachievers Divorce, medical professional Erica says: "I believe marriage is challenging and efforts should certainly be made to stay together…but not at the expense of our own happiness."
What if that rationale was applied to parenting? “Kids are worth keeping, provided we are happy with them.”
What if that was the approach to caring for aging parents? “We should help mom in her declining health, but not if it interferes with our happiness.”
It amazes me that anyone could make such a self-centered argument.
