First, let me just say this. If you are one of my wonderful male readers, I want you to know that I know this isn’t about you. I just don’t think men who are “middle age crazy” would be comfortable enough with who they are to spend any of their time reading a blog with a title about humor and faith. My thought is that if you turn into a sleaze bag, you probably then have to work at being that 24/7!
My friend, C, at Stickhorse Cowgirls is a long-time divorce attorney. She also happens to be a recent divorcee because her husband of over 30 years suddenly experienced this middle-age craziness and left her for a young woman who already had two children by men she was never married to, and they have since had a baby between them (how mind-boggling is that — he’s now 60 years old with a new baby!).
So, when I read C’s post here about Mel Gibson and the fact that his girlfriend recorded some of his rants, and is now being criticized for it, I knew for a fact that she definitely knows what she is talking about.
I wanted to share this excellent post because if there is anyone (woman OR man) reading this who is in an abusive relationship (and as C says, it isn’t just about hitting) or knows someone who is, I hope that C’s post will give you some insights and practical advice.
To me, this is what is the best about the blogging world — sharing of valuable insights and advice like this. Thank you, C.
