I’m a wife, stepmom x3 and mom x 1 who when I couldn’t find the stepmom support I was looking for, decided to create it myself. I love mac + cheese, distressed denim, sauvignon blanc and all things Dateline.

The KICK-ASS Stepmom Podcast | Would I Leave My Husband? Support For Stepmoms

Listen on Spotify | Listen on iTunes

A few weeks ago my husband asked me if I would ever leave him. And my answer shocked him… because I told him yes, I would…

We were talking about the couples in our life who have split-up. We’ve lost a few couples to the Big D

For the longest time I thought I hated growing up with divorced parents. I resented it. I swore I would never get a divorce myself. Marriage is forever, I said. Marriage is a commitment, I said.

That’s true, it is. But first and foremost my commitment is to myself.

Now I see things differently.

I am and always will be committed to fighting for and growing in this marriage, however if I got to a point where I felt like I was sacrificing myself, not getting the love and respect I know I deserve or was living a life that didn’t feel aligned – I would be OUT.

For the record, I don’t feel any of those things… I’m just saying for me, marriage is forever – unless it’s not.

 

I dive into:

  • my belief about marriage + divorce

  • what I actually resented in my childhood

  • my belief about the emotional wellbeing of children after divorce

  • the mistake I think some couples make

  • my commitment to myself and to my husband

and more.
