Can anyone believe that Eminem, or Marshall Mathers or Slim Shady or Mr. Shady if you're nasty (is that even funny anymore or are younger readers like WHAT?) cut his wife loose of a mere three months. The wife and mother of his child that he wrote songs about wanting to decapitate her. I mean, who wouldn't want to get back with your ex-husband baby daddy when he's writing you poetic stream of consciousness rap/romance like that? She's not made of granite, right? But, at the same time you have to know that it didn't work the first time and you have a child so maybe...possibly not the best idea to retie the knot. On the other hand, he does have money. BUT HE'S CRAZY and not just because he didn't get the Triumph the Insult Dog comic at the MTV awards a few years ago. I mean, really, are you going to start a fight with a puppet? Did you use a little too much bleach in your hair and the chemicals leaked in?
But okay, he's a little serious. Maybe Kim likes that in a man. Maybe she likes his deep thinking, possible serial killer, always downcast paranoid outlook on life. Maybe she's put in all her stats in the EHarmony website and it always comes out the big EM. But if that's the case, why the three months? WHY THE THREE MONTHS? Three months is nothing. Three months is less than a season of Surreal Life. Couldn't you make it through a season of Surreal Life and stay together?
I know I'll never figure it out but I always wonder what makes people tick. What makes people tough out the more challenging times and what makes people break. Obviously mental illness plays a part (Em) but in typical marriages. Of course there's cheating, fighting, money blah blah blah but other than big things, I want to know what makes someone break and decide they just can't do it. Especially when it's people you would never expect.
I love my husband more than anything. Yes I love my baby so I don't need the Ayalet Waldman bashers getting all over my shit, but is it because my husband is so steady that it's not dramatic? Is it that he just "gets me?" Is it that we can talk about anything that's bothering either of us but as often as we can we let shit go? Is it that he is willing to put up with depression or anxiety or bad moods for long periods of time (yes he expects me to address it but would never leave over it) - that makes me hope we'll be one of the 50% that make it work?
