My Answer Is Yes

The question I have been asked many times over the past few years…

“Do you think you’ll ever get married again?”

That’s an understandable inquiry when asked by someone who knows even a fraction of my heartache-filled story.

Divorce is never something you intend on experiencing when you profess your love and devotion at an altar on your wedding day. In fact, it’s taboo and utterly unthinkable!

Sadly, though, some marriages do end.

It’s painful.

It’s heartbreaking.

It’s tragic.

I am unsure if there are adequate words to describe the agony I felt living in and finally walking away from a very broken and abusive marriage.

So I am not thrown off when someone asks me if I think I’ll ever marry again and I know that they wouldn’t ((for one second)) blame me if I stayed single the rest of my life.

But my answer is yes.

Or better yet…YES!

I will get married again.

In fact, I am excited to get married! (when the time is right…I am in no rush!)

I am fully aware that relationships are risky. Being vulnerable enough to give your heart to someone, ESPECIALLY after you have been deeply wounded, is a complete risk. But it’s a risk I am willing to take.

Because the reality is that my ex only changed the way I felt about him-not about marriage.

I still believe marriage is a beautiful gift from God; that never changed.

I am thankful that I am experiencing an amazing season of being single and allowing my heart and mind to heal.

Because when it is time to give my heart away, my husband will get the very best of me.

Yes…he will!!
