When you’re married for 10 straight years, the sight of your lover’s crusty eyes and dragon breath in the morning becomes the norm.
Bad habits you once hid from your sweetie, like dropping one off in the toilet with the door open and scratching your privates is now part of your daily ritual together. Love it or hate it, most of the time your life partner is down for the ride.
Soon-to-be exes, Vanessa and Kobe Bryant know a thing or two about married life. The ex-couple, who was recently spotted locking lips after the Lakers victory against the Hawks on Valentine's Day, seem to still be in love with each other.
And who can blame them?!
After 10 years of marriage they have dealt with it all, while still managing to raise two beautiful daughters. The decision for Vanessa to split from hubby Kobe must have been a tough one, but Vanessa flipped the deuces when the Lakers star was caught one too many times with his hand in the cookie jar.
I don’t blame her.
No one should have to put up with dishonesty from someone they love. But what happened to the part when they said: “till death due us part?” What happened to the vows they made to each other to love and cherish each other forever? Kobe’s alleged infidelities should not be the reason why 10 years of marital bliss should be flushed down the toilet.
Marriage is a spiritual bond among most things and should be treated that way. Vanessa seems to have forgotten why she married Kobe in the first place.
Kobe should have taken a cue from R. Kelly and know that when a woman’s fed up, there ain’t nothing you could do about it. Because it seems as though Kobe’s attempts to make Vanessa stay have fallen on deaf ears.
Vanessa is set to make bank after the divorce with nearly half of Kobe’s $150 million fortune, but she has to remember the money won’t keep her warm at night and while Kobe is averaging 28 points a game, he’ll be missing his ride or die/best friend on the sidelines cheering him on.
It’s obvious to see the love is still there, so why leave?
All I'm saying is, don’t throw away something that is true Vanessa, maybe you should rethink your decision.
