Links We Love: Rehearsing Your Divorce

Rehearsing your divorce, the hell of marriage, the friendship trap and more.

In every marriage, divorce is contemplated at least once. Although, I suspect, in the best marriages it's considered three times a week. For one bickering couple, divorce was not only contemplated, but they tried it out in a dress rehearsal of sorts and what they found out was they liked marriage better. That's what we are talking about this week, rehearsing divorce, giving it up for Lent and whether marriage is a hellish trap designed to enslave gifted woman. *Cue evil laugh*
