Dear Team Practical,
It’s been a while since I’ve written you one of these letters, huh? Well. Let’s blame book writing (which we will discuss in further exciting details tomorrow).
But I’ve been thinking. Here at APW we talk about relationships, under the guise of weddings. And it’s so easy to talk about when relationships go right, and never ever talk about when relationships go wrong. Which means that when something does go wrong in your relationship it feels isolating and scary, and like something is wrong with you. And it shouldn’t feel like that. This week, I was browsing back through old posts and realized it had been a year since we’d talked about calling off your wedding. What? A year is far too long.
So here are some conversations I’d like to be having in this space:
- Calling off your wedding
- Getting a divorce
- Losing a partner
- Oh, and sex, because we need something to keep it upbeat
APW is about marriages and relationships, which means it’s also about when marriages and relationships end. And talking about that makes all of us wiser. So, if you’d like to share a story, email us at reclaimingwife at apracticalwedding dot com. We tend to like submissions between 750-1000 words, with a picture or two, but honestly, we’re not that picky. We just want your stories.
