We often wonder what happened and where did we go wrong when the marriage has finally ended.

You wanted the Princess but you were not willing to serve the King. You wanted the prize but you were not willing to enter the contest. You wanted the victory but you wouldn't fight in the battle. You wanted someone to help you but you would not serve. You wanted your wife perfect but you were not willing to change. You wanted a better future but you were not willing to let go of the past. You wanted life but you were not willing to live. You wanted a harvest but you were not willing to sow. You wanted respect but you would not reverence. You wanted a steadfast wife but you were not an unmovable husband. Now it is over and if you want Peace you must Pray and if you want Christ, you must Love.

Thank you for the poem, it certainly tells the story of so many experiences many have had. I also enjoyed reading your brief bio, your accomplishments and of course, I saddened at your losses.
God's Best,

I been through just what you say in 1984. Thanksfully I found a second hubby who did not divorce me, but died on me. Oh well, no #3, noone to watch go downhill but myself.

Whew that there could cut grits! I like the broad and the indepth look at all factors that can keep a relationship from growing placed throughout the piece. It was like saying you could have sugar if you at least try but if you walk away and don't give a damn about change all you're gonna get is low fat salt. I would have to agree that divorce is based on a lack of compromise and sacrifice. Ironically if people fail to sacrifice and come to a compromise you really do compromise your relationship and perhaps sacrifice the one thing you love the most ini the end. That's interesting and some very power packed point sista! Write on sista and keep spreading the words of wisdom.
