What, this? Just a blog with a bunch of quotes and maybe some images with words on them.
Here are my favorites.

  • “Not everyone is meant to be monogamous forever and that’s totally OK. It doesn’t make you a bad person.”
  • “My parents got divorced when I was 21, and I learned that if you hate your spouse, you should not stay together for the sake of your kids because you’re not doing anybody any favors. Also, to be successful at marriage, you need to be a good apologizer.”
  • “It’s a piece of paper to some; to others it’s a bond between people to express to others that we have connected on almost every level and that you can’t live without the other person. A unity to become one unit. To look at it negatively: Its a piece of paper that says I own half when this shit comes tumbling down.”
  • "Also this is kind of morbid but only marry someone who won’t be a gigantic asshole in the event of a divorce. I feel that speaks a lot to someone’s character in general because if you think they’d be selfish in the worst case scenario, they’re probably not a good person to go through other tough stuff with either.”
  • “Marriage is weird and complicated and probably not a particularly natural state of existence for most people. Also, marriage has absolutely nothing to do with the feeling of being in a family. Looking back on it, the best moments I’ve had with my family happened after my parents got divorced and started co-parenting. The only thing that sucks more than going through a divorce, in my experience, is living with two people who need one. I think about whether or not I’d ever get married and I usually half-joke/half-honestly believe that I’d rather have kids before I ever even considered getting married. Marriage just seems like a really expensive way to slowly let down the person you love until you hate each other.”
  • “That it’s unnecessary unless you are bound to it for some religious reason. To me, marriage has become something I don’t understand in the slightest. Why do I need another person to confirm my love for someone else?”

I don’t mean to brag, but I’m something of a sexual Prius: generally adequate, disconcertingly quiet, and frequently applauded for my low, environmentally friendly emissions.

I spent like 10 years of my life pretending to fly around on a broomstick and you’re asking me if preparing for a love scene was ‘tricky’ because the other person also had a penis?

We must remember that there’s more than one story and plot in every novel. There are at least as many stories as there are main characters, and each of these stories has to have multiple plots to keep it going – blood and bone, nerve and tissue, forgotten longing and unknown events.

There are only so many times that you can utter ‘It does not hurt’ before it begins to hurt even more than the hurt. You become enlightened of the feeling of feeling hurt, which is worse, I am certain, than the existent hurt.
