You Didn't Know...

By: John Patrick Adams


It’s amazing how some of you are married, but now unhappy with the one you chose to marry…  Out of nowhere, YOU’RE BRAND NEW!!!   It’s like you’re sleeping with a stranger every night…   You didn’t know she didn’t cook, clean, bathe, take care of herself…  You didn’t know he was cheap, disrespectful, and unable to commit to one…  You didn't know he/she was addicted to sex, drugs, and alcohol...  You didn’t know their credit was bad, their spending habits were awful, nor did you know they were living above their earthly means…  You didn’t know he/she was controlling, manipulative, abusive, insecure, and borderline psycho… Let you tell it, you didn't know any of this...

You didn’t know their siblings were so involved in their lives, their mother was too protective, and their father had such power over her view of what a real man truly is…  You didn’t know your single friends were going to be a problem, your church involvement was going to be too much, nor did you know how much you love God would be a concern…  You didn’t know your strength would be a threat, your education would be an issue, nor did you know your ability to stand on your own would become a determining factor in the future of your marriage…  You didn’t know he/she was so clingy, so dependent upon you, and that literally you were their every thought…  You didn’t know he/she was a liar, untrustworthy, and misleading…  But when you get to the bottom of it, is it you didn’t know them or you didn’t know YOU???

People don’t change, we just finally see them for who they are…  Many of you are married to someone who revealed themselves way before you jumped the broom, however you overlooked their truth…  You saw what you wanted to see and what you didn’t, you placed it safely in the back of your mind… You didn’t want to deal with it…  You didn’t want to go through the pain of walking away…  You didn’t want to look deep within yourselves to see why you’re still with someone who is wrong for you…  Many of you knew exactly who they were, but didn’t know who you were and what you deserved…  Again, people don’t change, we just finally see them for who they are…  You knew who they were, just like they knew who you are… What I know for sure is...  YOU KNEW, BUT STILL YOU SIGNED UP FOR IT...
