It’s funny. My husband doesn’t even know who Kim Kardashian is. He is not big into pop culture and it’s one of the things I love about him. I’m not really that much into either but I am aware of what’s going on in the pop culture world. The latest – Kim filing for divorce after a few months of marriage and her $10 million wedding has gotten to me and I wanted to write something about it. Since I’ve decided to climb up on my soapbox I may as well stand up straight and speak loudly and clearly!
The first thing that really upsets me is how this incident shows so little respect for marriage. Marriage to me is a relationship between a man and woman that is blessed by God. It’s not done for play, for publicity, or money. It’s supposed to be for keeps.
Second, marriage is supposed to be about commitment. A lifelong commitment.
Third, these reality shows seem to be having such a negative influence on people’s real lives. There should be some privacy for married couples and families.
Ok – I’ve said my piece. It wasn’t a lot but I just had to say it. Recently I told a Christian friend that the thing made me mad and she said something that made a lot of sense. She said, “These people are of the world.” When you are of the world, you will do stupid, nonsensical, hurtful and ridiculous things. And others of the world will look upon it and won’t see anything wrong.
Me – trying to be of God while in the world
