I checked WordPress before publishing this last night and it showed I had no scheduled posts for the time slot. When I checked this morning, I noticed WordPress missed the earlier post I had scheduled for the same time slot. Which is why you are seeing it again as I moved it today.
If you noticed some of my recent stories have included couples’ related stuff, especially when it comes to quarantine stuff, it’s because I see too many personal friend couples who are handling it poorly. I can’t speak for the blogosphere, but from those friends I know in the local area, only a handful are handling it well and many couples are having some major issues. I have done what I can with a few of them, but most think they are handling it a lot better than they are. In situations like that, I pray for them and let it drop. I learned a long time ago, many people take offense if you get in the middle of something where they think it’s going a lot better than it is.
As someone who has been through divorce under less trying circumstances than shelter in place, I would have welcomed advice. If this doesn’t apply to you, but you know couples who are struggling, you can tactfully suggest some of the suggestions in the below posts:
I would encourage discussing issues with your spouse or your friends before they get too big. Some of the blogger couples I read are handling it well. This is not intended for any particular bloggers I read or follow.
One advantage I had was being the youngest who paid attention to my older siblings mistakes. I still made some of my own that they didn’t make, including not realizing I learned the wrong lesson from their mistakes on occasion.
