“Two married women in their 60’s are shocked when they find out that their husbands are leaving them, but even more shocked out to find the reason why; they are gay and in love with each other! Now Grace and Frankie have to figure out how to deal with their lives now and how to move on in this original comedy series from Netflix.”
There is mention of the hidden lives of the male characters in this show. I can relate. I have had conversations with the spouses of two women that were seeing my husband. They, like me, had no idea what was going on, what was hidden. One of the men said to me that on one particular day that “the scales fell from my eyes and I knew.” Extremely sad. Not a proud legacy to leave behind.
“Ever notice how Christians quoting these words from Jesus have no problem “casting stones” at faithful spouses? Pointing out their alleged spousal failures.
I agree with what the Divorce Minister has to say. The blame tends to be displaced. I have spoken to many women going through a divorce who are the subjects of the blame when they are the innocent party. Most of these men make excuses and take no responsibility.
Initially, I lost all connections to the things I used to love. I was so damaged, but over time I started to read again, to enjoy photography, and to cook again. I was beginning to heal.
This week joy has come in many forms. Going out with friends, sleepovers and swimming with my Grandson, and seeing my daughters.
(Full disclosure. This post is a past post. When I wrote this post, I was three years removed from the initial pain. It is now about 4.5 years since this began. Am I completely healed? No, there was damage to my heart my mind and my entire being, but I am improving every day. Don’t get me wrong, at this point, I would not change the outcome. I was living with a man that I thought I knew but did not. I am much better off).
