My fairy tale marriage

How's that for a title?

The below article is about a woman who entered into marriage believing her prince charming was going to make all her fairy tale dreams come true.

Then life happened.

And for them that included 2 1/2 years of unemployment.

I identified with this article in so many ways as far as the emotional strain that unemployment puts on a marriage. The loss of a job is so much more than just the loss of a job....it impacts every part of your life: financially, relationally, mentally, emotionally, spiritually.

Do me a favor and read this article. And if/when someone in your life (not me dear friends :) faces a season of unemployment, remember the struggle it can place on their marriage and lift them in prayer.

Good for me to read some perspective on this. I will be praying for your marriage especially this week.
