Finding the one you want to love and cherish and f*ck and be married to for the rest of your life is no easy feat. And even when you think you’ve found “the one” — you could realize months, years, or even decades down the line that they are not the right person for you, and maybe they never were. What happens when you realize that you’ve married the complete wrong person?
For some people, the red flags were easy to spot before marriage, but they had disillusioned themselves into thinking that saying “I do” would somehow fix all of the problems that were staring them straight in the face for so long. Once all of the sparkly unicorn sh*t has faded away from your wedding day and the congratulations start getting fewer and far between, you realize that you are really f*cking married. And yes, that person is the one who gets into petty arguments over your in-laws. That person is the one who you always catch looking at other women. That person is the one who can flip a switch into Hulk Hogan angry, abusive monster once it’s just the two of you. And that person is supposed to be with till death do you part. Yikes.
You think once you’ve found someone to marry, the hard part is done. Turns out — the hard stuff has just begun and the trials and tribulations that once rocked your relationship will now blow up tenfold. Will you feel stuck in the marriage? Will you have the guts and gusto to break free from the sh*t storm of pettiness and anger and resentment and abuse? Some people will be strong enough to get a divorce, but many will stay in these terrible marriages for fear of being single and “alone” and getting thrown back into the dating scene with a whole lot of baggage and a jaded personality to boot. Realizing that you’ve married the wrong person is f*cking tough, but the sooner you get out of it, the sooner you can start rebuilding your life and start boinking people who actually give a sh*t about you.
