I hear the question all the time, “Well, if two people can have an amicable divorce then why don’t they stay married?”
I suppose it’s a reasonable question.
In order to answer it, I ask that you take a mental voyage with me. Let’s go to a playground full of frolicking children…
It’s a hot, sunny day and a group of kids are having a discussion.
Child #1 points to the sky. “That cloud looks like a bowl of ice cream.”
Child #2 exclaims, “I love ice cream!”
Child #3, in a sing-songy voice, replies, “Then why don’t you marry it?”
You’ve heard that one right? And it’s a positively ridiculous suggestion, is it not?
Lifelong commitments simply aren’t that simple.
