I just read an article asking “Can the Likelihood of Divorce be Ingrained in a Woman’s Genes?”
The Swedes say yes.
They call this gene A-allele.
Yes, they have actually named it and they labelled it as if it were a dysfunction.
dot dot dot…
Let me just clear my throat a moment…and say:
What a load of horse poop.
This doesn’t sit well with me at all.
I was once accused of having ‘mental illness’ because I wasn’t happy in my marriage.
Not that I need to but let me clarify: I do not have a mental illness.
Why is it that when a woman realizes that she needs to make a change in her life, that all of a sudden there must be something wrong with her?
(Labelled with a genetic marker) PFFT!
I have witnessed this for myself and I have seen it happen with friends.
How quick people are to find a good logical reason for the why the woman needs out.
Quick to label her crazy or unreasonable.
Why does it have to be so complicated?
Finding that understanding isn’t always easy for the partner, friends, relatives and such.
I get that. But please…try.
It isn’t easy for her either so give some space. and give some time to understand.
Before you made a label or a judgement.
