I wonder why the movie came up when I Googled “Netflix movie for self development”. I was not inspired or motivated in the least. If anything, at the end of the film, I was like, “That’s it?” Very anti-climactic.
It is probably because of my broken engagement, but everytime I see or hear married couples separate, I feel really bad. I was not even given the chance to walk down the aisle (or the shore near the beach for that matter) and they are lucky enough to be together but somehow it is not working for them.
Or am I lucky I dodged that bullet? Maybe we would have separated in the end, too. There is no way to tell now, and no point in thinking about it. Except that, deep inside, I know that we could be very happy together if we were given the chance.
For my sanity’s sake, however, it is best I forget about him. The movie has portrayed how ugly divorce can get. I liked how it started with a list of the things Charlie and Nicole love about the other. But it was not long before they started viciously attacking each other.
If there is one thing I have learned, I did not know before that a divorce costs so much! I mean, 25,000 dollars for a lawyer to accept your case! That is insane! I should make sure if I get married, it is for keeps.
What is your marriage story?
