why did u marry himA few people I know have married losers.  Not only did I know they were losers, but they knew they were losers before they married them.  So why did they marry them?
Why did she marry the guy who gave her a black eye? Oh, he only did it once. In front of a room full of people.
Why did she marry the guy who cheated on her 2 weeks before the wedding?  Oh he was having cold feet. And it was his ex girlfriend, not a stranger.
Why did she marry the guy who gave her an allowance?  Oh, its really not that bad, its what his Dad did for his Mom.
Why did she marry the guy who talked down to her?  Oh, its only when he isn’t getting his own way. He’s so generous to me.
Why did she marry the guy who smoked pot all day?  Oh, it calms his anxiety. And he doesn’t smoke it around my parents.
I have put myself out there on three occasions and told my friends “not to marry” the man they were about to marry.  And yes my friendships have suffered from my choice. I have noticed that once they get engaged they think everything is going to change. Or maybe they just get so caught up with planning a wedding, a life and a family that they lose site of what they are really about to do.
Even now that some of those marriages have fallen apart, I still lost my friendships. And it’s okay. I get it.  How can a woman really stay friends with someone who told them, “not to marry” the man they married?

Kyla Cornish is an on hiatus radio Dj adjusting to being a Momma of two children. Main problems? Lack of sex, sleep, sanity and an addiction to saucy chicken wings. According to one, probably drunk commentor on her blog, ” She is Canada’s Version of The Bloggess”. You can read her writing in a series of e-books titled “Life Well Blogged” and she has been recognized by many top blogger lists. She was even named Platinum Blog in her community of Cranbrook, British Columbia. Her big claim to fame is being kicked out of a blogging contest for cheating. She also won a baking competition when she was 11 at a 4-H Rally. So as you can see, she's kind of a big deal.


  1. I think it’s a two-way street. How could you stay friends with someone who has lost your respect?

    Hmm. I suspect that people warned my first husband about me… good thing I got our before he figured out his friends thought I wasn’t right for him. (They were correct)

  3. Marriage isn’t something everyone sees a a long term commitment anymore. They see it like a lease. Sign up for a few years, if they like it they might keep it, if not move on to a new model.
