Sara gives us this week’s word challenge: DEALBREAKERS
Check it out here
This could refer to family, friends, spouses, employers, landlords, politicians, someone annoying you on social media, even the weather…sky’s the limit!
What is your threshold, your non-negotiables, where do YOU draw the line?Hehe. Hubby and I broke the norm as it was said 4 out of 5 second marriages fail.
Both divorced, and thus a statistic of the 3 out of 5 marriage failures, Hubs and I have been wed 30 years this year, so we must be doing something right.
I can’t remember saying ‘for better or for worse’ though as this time was a Registry Office affair and a fun day. There were only 9 of us, and everyone took a row to make it look more. Mum said she’d never seen me look so serious.
No confetti was allowed in the grounds, so everyone threw sugar puffs and rice crispies (we fished them out of my bra later to much hilarity) which kept the birds happy. The handcuffs in case I changed my mind, stayed in Hubby’s pocket.
We became friends first, then everything else just happened. No regrets though.
We did agree that we could still have our off days, just not on the same day, which has worked very well for us, and I confess I’ve had more bad days than he has.
I suppose the deal breaker for me would have been if he was a drinker. I do not handle alcohol well myself and am more or less tee total, but having had relationships where drink took the upper hand, no thanks.
He also had to like dogs (ya think??). I had my GSD at the time, and she only barked at him, then got the idea he was not a threat.
And biggest thing of all, he had to be able to dispose of arachnids. Mice and snakes don’t bother me but spiders? No. I’m a wreck as this post will show.
