Is dreaming of divorce the answer to a happy marriage?
Posted Aug 26 2008 1:20pm
This excellent Ellen Tien article ( She’s Happily Married, Dreaming of Divorce ) appeared in Oprah a few months ago, but has been steadily making its way around the internets, popping up again, as if new, on CNN.com. Maybe you’ve already read it (about five times, like I have), maybe not, but I’m curious, young married ladies: what say you? Is the writer overly cynical? Simply been married for too long? Wrong five ways ’til Sunday? Or…gulp…correct in her belief that it all comes down to thoughts of divorce in the end? (Nuanced, thoughtful, appreciative of the finer points of marriage…but correct all the same?) Either way, I’m still digging in my heels. It’s going to take an entire army of horses to drag ol’ Jolie to the altar. (And will I be eating my words in a few years? Um, yeah, probably.)
