What is the # 1 reason for divorce in America? No, it’s not marriage

soup What is the # 1 reason for divorce? Hello Everyone! Long time no see! Thank you for reading our little blog. I have been trying to think about today’s post for some time. I ran it by our committee and we can’t agree on the answer to my question: What is the number one reason for divorce in America? I still don’t know as I sit here, waiting for my soup to finish simmering on the stove. Btw, I just love the month of October. It has the perfect weather for home-cooked warm soup, and warm milk and heavy creme with cocoa sipped from perfectly white porcelain tea cups; and cozy evenings curled up on the sofa flipping through decorating magazines while listening to WQXR, your cat at your feet perfectly contented.

I just love October. Today, October 2, 2009, was a perfect October day. I wore a suit and turtle neck and didn’t break a sweat even though I raced around town taking care of this and that. Though the leaves haven’t started to turn, I am still in a wonderful mood. I don’t know what it is about October but I enjoy many peaceful, perfect days at this time of the year. Even the people born in this month tend to be so beautiful and handsome and perfect in a sort of way, wouldn’t you concur?

Anyways. The reason for divorce in America. The number one reason. Maybe that more couples don’t take the time to enjoy October evenings with each other? I mean, certainly in the northern states, it is truly a wonderful time of year and it augurs the holidays and all the festivities to come. Yet many people just go through the days so robotically, forgetting to take the time to savor the ………….hang on. I think my soup is ready. It smells divine….can you excuse me while I take a short break?………..

Well. I’m back. That was a religious experience. That was really, really good soup. And it was so simple to make! I am not a gourmet by any means, but that was off the charts. Simple ingredients: butter squash, african yam, carrots, orange peppers, asparagus, fresh and dried tomatoes, garlic, butter and, um….the secret ingredient……. a table-spoon of Tostitos Creamy Spinach Dip (yes, the one you put on tortilla chips). omg. That was really good soup….My palette has been awakened…..

Ok. So what’s the topic? Oh, what is the #1 reason for divorce in America? Yikes. I dunno. It’s not marriage? Then, is it sex? Is it money? Or is it a failure to really savor the 31 days of October? And make soup?
