In Sickness And in Health...





It’s funny how many singles want to be married, but with Covid-19 impacting each of our lives, it’s amazing how many married people with or without children want to be single… You see for many people work was a break… A break from the hardships; problems; disagreements; noise in which marriage and kids bring… Malls. Movies and Ministry were distractions from misery; unhappiness; mental and emotional loneliness…. Gyms were the temporary getaways and stress relievers from the pressure in which marriage can sometimes bring… With everyone being on lockdown, Covid-19 is revealing to many people just what their lives looks like on the inside.


It’s easy to post a picture of a happy couple on Social Media… It’s easy to stand before your friends and portray happiness of people who truly love each other… But when it boils down to it, it’s hard as fuck for many being this couple… Just like singles, Covid-19 is causing many married people to see exactly the reality, not the perception plastered all over Social Media… It’s showing them the communication breakdowns; the mistrust; and the broken love of their marriages… Being married is great for some when they’re able to take a moment to get away from the small things that irritate the hell out of them, but it’s now time to face every little thing you don’t like head on…


Covid-19 has proven to be an eye opener… Not just what is going on in the world, but what’s going on in your own home… It’s opening eyes to improvements needing to be made in their marriages and their individual lives… Can you imagine being trapped with someone you don’t like? Trapped with the person you tolerate for the sake of the kids? Trapped with someone you are mentally and emotionally disconnected from? Can you imagine no breaks from the noise of arguments, disagreements and dislikes? No getaways from the insecurities of a spouse??? Imagine how every text is a problem; your screen time on your phone is a problem… Covid-19 hasn’t physically touched many of us, but it has found it’s way into the homes of many and revealing just how sick their lives truly are…


What I know for sure is… Single isn’t looking so bad to many married people today… What many have criticized many singles repeatedly now looks like a blessing out of their reach… Many singles are struggling because they’re home alone, but many married people are struggling because they are not…
