When I got divorced it was expensive, because it was worth it. I spent many years wondering what I did wrong. issue was I didn't do anything wrong, neither did she. We just grew apart. We had differing priorities and goals. Our goals were the same when we were married but changed as we evolved and grew.

Recently a friend of mine asked me about divorce.

"It's expensive, but it's worth it," came out of my mouth before I had a moment to thing what I was saying.

He then told me his sob story of which I could see the same problems that I had experienced.

I told him it was both of their faults, cut the garbage out and nut up and try to work it out. What he didn't know is I had already given his wife the same damn speech.

They weren't communicating, didn't have the same passion that they had 8 years ago. I told them to go somewhere isolated, with no other human contact to force them to talk again. When they came back, it was like they were newlyweds again.

Sometimes guys, it's about talking to your wives, no matter how painful it may seem.

I'm spending this weekend communicating with my wife.

I'll bring what's left of the bottle when I return.

Yup, I've determined what I want to do when weekend jock Kansas gets out of line...

Somehow a Canadian convinced his friends to let him fly a drone at them...

But Sean, that's not that bad.

What if he was firing Roman Candles at them?

Yeah... don't try this at home kiddies!
