Real men divorce,
Keeping it real.
The weak ones do not,
Even when they should,
To keep up appearances.
The weaklings marry a second one—
Like putting a bandaid on a bullet wound—
And live a life of lie, held hostage to society.
Dear men, and women too,
Marriage is supposed to make you whole;
Not subtract, divide or fracture you.
Though it can become shaky, when it does:
Work on it, if you can’t steady it, break it off—
Anything that doesn’t make you feel fulfilled:
Diminishes your person, health, and life span.
It being an act of worship, don’t be gaslighted;
That only holds when it endears you to God.

They will be worst off in a dysfunctional home.

But rather, a mark of a progressive society:
