It is August 5th I have been married thirteen years. I have been “separated” for almost three. Not legally separated, but separated in the same home as my husband and children.
In these three years, I have been wanting to start a blog. I had a difficult time deciding on a niche. I wanted to write about something that would hold my attention and allow me to have consistent content to upload. Living with an estranged spouse is the blog I want to share. I look forward to uploading blog posts on the weekly basis. I want to create an awesome online community!
Sharing that I acquired a domain name and was in the process of launching this blog solidified that I chose the right subject. I was afraid it would be too taboo, but once I started telling others about my idea I was surprised by the feedback. Women and men alike, were sharing about how their marriages were barely hanging on.
My marriage fell apart for a multitude of reasons including work, work travel, physical intimacy, alcohol, and social media. I am an open book. Nothing in my blog will be off limits.
There is no physical, emotional, or mental abuse in my marriage. This blog will not be about bashing my husband. We honestly get along well and I jokingly say that we don’t care enough to fight. We have been honest with our kids and when my husband goes out on the weekends they know it may be to go out on a date. My daughter can barely contain herself. Having a stepmother excites her! I can see the dollars in her eyes. I just tell her Mom and Dad have to get divorced first and that isn’t happening anytime soon.
I am including other areas of interest within this blog. Please leave comments of your favorite books and podcasts. I am always looking for new ones.
I will upload a new blog post on Sundays.
