A Quote by Cecelia Ahern on tragedy, divorce, and decisions

When something tragic has happened, you'll find that you, the tragicee, become the person that has to make everything comfortable for everyone else....
As a tragicee and future divorcee, you'll also find that people will question you on the biggest decisions you've ever made in your life as though you hadn't thought about them at all before – as though, through their twenty questions and dubious faces, they're going to shine light on something that you missed the hundredth time around during your darkest hours.

A Quote by Byron Katie on marriage, metaphor, divorce, honesty, integrity, yes, and no

The voice within is what I'm married to.  All marriage is a metaphor for that marriage.  My lover is the place inside me where an honest yes and no come from.  That's my true partner.  It's always there.  And to tell you yes when my integrity says no is to divorce that partner.

A Quote by Byron Katie on love, marriage, husband, spouse, and divorce

Nothing can cost you someone you love. The only thing that can cost you your husband is if you believe a thought. That's how you move away from him. That's how the marriage ends. You are one with your husband until you believe the thought that he should look a certain way, he should give you something, he should be something other than what he is. That's how you divorce him. Right then and there you have lost your marriage.
