30-day writing challenge ~ Day 20 (Going solo)

Going solo.  Day 20 (10 more days to go on the WWFC Writing Challenge)

I've found going solo is not my idea of fun.  I just don't do well on my own.  Daytime is fine when I can commando thrift shop or visit my family or friends, but when nighttime falls sometimes I get lonely.

When I am not blogging, the other internet site I frequent is CafeMom.
There are so many postings along the line of - should I divorce my husband, he is [fill in the blank here ~ cheating on me, looking at me sideways, gaming too much, bromancing his friends, texting another woman, boring me, blah, blah, blah]?  I try to discourage these ladies-in-wanting from leaving their marriages.  One cannot anticipate the fallout from the dissolution of a marriage - from the anger and resentment from the jilted spouse, the hurt and confusion of the children, to the ostracization from the family.

I have read theories that the downfall of America is in part because of the disintegration of the family unit.  Single women and their children are no longer protected by either a spouse or a core family.  Social services have been cut and they are left to their own devices.

While I understand ending a marriage when there is some form of abuse involved, I would advocate a return to establishing "fault" divorces.  The advent of no-fault divorce has been devastating to American families and society.

No reason to go solo, if you don't have to.
