Sometimes it feels like that’s all you ever do—because, it turns out, you have been grieving your marriage for years. You close the bedroom door and sit on that bed and you talk. I can tell you this: I feel defensive of Craig here. Nothing separates a woman or a family from God’s love. Jesus taught us that sometimes death is necessary for there to be new life.
You talk about how hard you’ve worked together, how you stayed on your mats and didn’t run from each other. You sit in a therapist’s waiting room to discuss how to handle this with as much peace as possible for the kids. Like Mama T said: I was not called to be successful. I was called to be faithful to truth and vulnerability and to YOU. Please come close when I say this next part, it’s important: This next step is not a departure from the path of the Love Warrior. The world will have opinions and I need this Love Warrior Army. And that God loves us far more than any institution God made for us.
Pretend it’s just the two of us here in my kitchen. I pass a mug to you and ask you to sit down on the couch with me. But what can happen over time is this: You wake up one day and realize that you have put yourself back together completely differently.
You follow me into my family room and and we sit down and I look at you. That you are whole, finally, and strong – but you are now a different shape, a different size.
Frankly, I never saw it coming and I’m typically pretty perceptive about these things, for goodness sake.
I was going about my merry way thinking everything was , it was wasn’t.
They had married in June 2006 and are the parents of two boys, Indiana and Atticus.
I can see that you’re nervous because you’ve figured out I’m about to tell you something important. This sort of change — the change that occurs when you sit inside your own pain — it’s revolutionary. And no matter how hard you try, you simply cannot fit into your old life anymore. And because you never promised yourself an easy life, but you did promise yourself a true one. Since I publicly announced the trauma in my marriage four years ago, I have become a soft place to land for women in marriage trauma.
I quickly say: , Craig and I endured serious trauma a few years ago. When you let yourself die, there is suddenly one day: new life. You are like a snake trying to fit into old, dead skin, or a butterfly trying to crawl back into the cocoon, or new wine trying to pour itself back into an old wineskin. And you have become a woman who doesn’t ignore her knowing. You did promise – back when you were putting yourself back together – that you’d never betray you again. I have listened to what kind of responses from people are helpful and which are hurtful. Try to avoid lamenting how sad it is that people “throw away their marriages these days.” Try not to generalize.
