“Truth is everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.” – Bob Marley

If you’ve been married for more than, say, a week, you know that your spouse is going to hurt you. Sometimes unwittingly, sometimes deliberately. (And I am NOT talking about physical or emotional abuse…those require professional intervention, and, often departure.)

It can be the careless forgetting of an important date, or a snide comment delivered in the presence of friends.

It happens, and everybody goes through it, but it doesn’t make it hurt any less.

But wait…if everybody goes through it, that includes…gulp…your spouse.

Hurt by you.

And if your mate’s still there…isn’t he or she worth suffering for?
