with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I’m not sure about you guys, but I don’t really watch The Bachelor. It’s not that it’s not mindlessly entertaining, it’s just that between day time work and freelance work and my kids and that husband-guy, I don’t have a lot of time for watching T.V. The time I do have, I would rather spend watching shows such as Modern Family/Community/30 Rock/The Office. Those are my husband’s favorite shows too and we like to save them up on the PVR and catch up on a weekend night after the kids are in bed.
That said, I found myself with a headache and a bit (or, a lot) of nausea yesterday and spent the evening on the couch. Lucky me! It was The Bachelor’s season finale! I had no idea who either of the girls were and didn’t know the background, but it’s always interesting to watch the final ceremony. And then the “after the rose” show to see where they are today.
Emily (the “winner”) raised some valid concerns and the show brought three of their past couples who were still together and they all made it clear that it was pretty hard to enter the real world again. Watching episodes of the one you’ve committed to love forever…saying sweet things and kissing another woman (or five) has got to be a little bit horrible.
I’m not saying that people can’t make it work - I truly believe anyone can, if they are both committed to doing so - but it seems like you’re choosing to start off with the odds stacked against you. This (obviously) isn’t an every day situation but it’s the topic du jour and I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Do you think that true love can be found on a reality show?
