The crazy world we live in...
A commercial came on TV for one of the real housewives shows (I have no idea which one.) and The guy interviewing the wives asked about one about how she admitted to her husband cheating on her and she replies with something along the lines of "I didn't admit to him cheating on me but we have been married for 38 years and it would be foolish of me to think he has been completely faithful the entire time."
I wasn't even really watching TV (background noise) but I turned to the TV and couldn't believe the words that just came out of her mouth. It made me sad for her and for her husband. How little does she respect or expect out of him to think he has zero self control? and how little does she respect herself to be okay with her husband cheating?
I haven't been married long almost three years but you can bet your bottom dollar that in 35 years I will expect my husband to be completely faithful and I to him. Not only because we love each other but because we respect each other and our children enough to not be so foolish. can you imagine the example we would be setting for our daughters if we didn't expect this out of each other? It reminds me of the talk to Elaine S Dalton "love her mother.'' I am grateful that in this crazy world we live in we still have amazing examples in the world. I am grateful for the amazing example my parents, Doug's parents, and my sisters and their husband have set.
General conference is this weekend and I'm so excited to hear all the talks. "love her mother" has truly made such an impact on my life. I remember when I first herd it I cried tears of joy because I knew that Bella had an amazing father to raise her. I called Doug (he was in Iraq) and thanked him. he wasn't able to watch conference then but a few months after he came home they shared this talk in his priesthood class and after church he shared it with me and told me how much he loved it.
I thought I would share this wonderful talk :)
