Re: 3 kids, a mortgage, 8 years later and Happily Un-Married!!!
All journeys of love should be celebrated. I believe lots of ladies are defending their marriages because of your tone in the OP. Kind of snobbish, imo. But whatevs. You're probably just excited to proclaim what you did. That's cool. Just don't be surprised when that sort of tone is met with defensive responses, you know?
