I had the good intention of running in the morning, but my body felt like a brick. So I got up and walked Mochi instead. Since I had time after the walk, I got on Facebook.
Then I see this post:
I felt compelled to read the post because I live with my fiance.
The first paragraph:
Today isn’t for the married girls. And since I’m guessing that is who usually reads my stuff, I’m hoping you’ll relate to this…and then forward it to your favorite single girlfriend. Particularly that girlfriend who’s living with her man.
Hey, send this post to all your friends living with their boyfriends and ruin their day.
The writer said something that really upset me. "You shouldn't have to earn a ring". Marriage requires unconditional love, but living together creates a performance-based love. Be a good girlfriend. Do all the wife-like duties. Don’t be too much of a nag or a bore or let your body lose it shape. And maybe he’ll decide you are good enough for the real deal.
Everyone leads a different path. Everyone has a story to tell.
