With a divorce rate of well over one-third, we all have a lot on our plate when it comes to maintaining a healthy relationship.
Rather than focus on blogging about this fruitless subject, I began to think about why these are such hotbed topics to begin with.Why is it, on the heels of 2012, are we so fascinated with racial distinctiveness, yet not interested at all in what unites us?And what unites us…as human beings…is the longing to find a mate, and be fully accepted by them.Unfortunately the “battle for love” is one that is fought among people of all persuasions.They do not care about what other people think about them and they are not deterred if no one (or if only a few) around them are doing what they are doing.
