Relationships Went From Being Sacred...

To being the butt end of a joke...

My Husband and I have been together for almost fourteen and a half years but we've been married for almost six and a half years. I'm not going to say that it was easy, because it wasn't, but I will say that every troublesome moment has been worth it; those moments have allowed us to get to the peace and tranquility that we are enjoying today. The things that go on in our relationship are no one's business but our own and we make it a habit to keep it that way.

I'm noticing, more often than not, that there are a lot of people who treat being in a relationship like some sort of joke. Never at any given moment should anyone know the ins and outs of your relationship. An occasional, trusted, confidant (or even two) maybe but not ALL of those around you. Not everyone on any social network that you have an account with. Not random strangers on the street. Quite frankly, not even your family should really know the inner workings of your relationship.

If you truly want your relationship to work, then outside interference won't do.

When so many people know your business, then they feel entitled to give THEIR OPINION about YOUR BUSINESS. Nothing irks me more than when unwanted advice is given; especially on a situation that the person knows nothing about. If you make a decision that they don't agree with, then they feel like they have a right to be personally offended by it.

Infidelity, poor money managing, "baby momma/daddy" drama, domestic violence, horrible parenting, a questionable sex life; these are a lot of things that I see/hear about people that I don't even know, especially on a personal level. Smh. I guess some people just don't care what information they share with the world anymore...
