Name one positive thing that came out of your marriage....

I believe that my marriage was used as a catalyst in my return to a true relationship with God. My eyes were opened to my own inadequacies, and I am learning that even if God has forgiven me, I need to learn how to forgive myself. I have recognized my isolation and am starting to reach out and rebuild relationship bridges.

Great topic, AnneMarie. My kids, of course. But also, I would not have found the Catholic Church. I converted in order to marry, but only much later did the Faith truly become my own.

My children

I have a decent relationship with my mother in law, her 5 sisters, a grand mother in law. They always made me feel welcomed and loved.

Many outstanding spiritual experiences.

A deeper appreciation for my parents, their marriage, and the core values that they have instilled in all 6 of us.

Maureen,

I couldn't agree more. When I was packing to leave my ex, his brother and sister-in-law came to the house to talk to me. I was told, "Just because my brother is a jerk, does not mean you are allowed to divorce us. We love you." I cried - a LOT! They are still two of my dearest friends and their middle son is going to make me a great aunt this fall!!

Kids, in-laws and church....life's good!!!

My 4 beautiful daughters. Also, I learned so much about myself, I know what I need as opposed to what I may want from a relationship. I realized that you can't change or help people who don't want help for themselves and that having a the same core beliefs as your spouse are super important.

thanks Karen. I couldn't agree more. I definitely understand the concept of being unequally yoked now!

So true, Anne Marie!

It feels so good to be at peace with everyone. No more bitterness, no more baggages, all is forgiven. I have a precious daughter, my in-laws are still very supportive and my ex and I are civil with each other. Best of all, I have a closer relationship with God. Yes, life is good! Dove
