Episode 025: Thoughts from Mom-nonymous
Episode 025: Without A Net with special guest Lex Morales
Lex and his wife grew up in the same religion. His parents had divorced at some time.
Lex and his girlfriend dated for awhile and had sexual relations.They admitted their sins to the church elders and for this she was shunned from her church for a year. They did get back together dated and became engaged, then marrying at the end of that year. The religion didn’t dictate he marry her but he felt it was the right thing to do. As time passed on they were not so happy or in agreement on
having children. So they lived in the same house slept in separate bedrooms not talking with one another. Agreed to counseling which didn’t solve anything either. Jeff left the church, shortly after they divorced and once again his wife was shunned by the church.
His best friend committed suicide and when Lex attended his funeral none of her family and friends would talk to him but called him names.
Divorce doesn’t come easy and without a support group of family and friends you are lost.
Reflecting on his religion and the control or should I say rules one understands you lost your voice on your marriage and needed to get out. You did the right thing for yourself and will one day find happiness with someone else Sharing your values and having more fun.
Either you or your host Leanne made a good point. “In today’s world does marriage make sense anymore? Maybe a contract would be easier.
Hoping you find an awesome person in your life.
