"Status" Update

Yesterday, I decided to re-add my husband as a friend on Facebook.  (Yeah, it got that juvenile at one point)

He then proceeded to update is relationship status as married to me and when I confirmed the relationship, I had no idea what I was getting myself in to.

See, I have this tendency to forget that every little thing I do on Facebook is documented for all of my "friends" to see.  I wasn't prepared for all the responses that I got and the apparent confusion it caused.  It apparently meant something far more significant that I imagined!  I thought it was just a statement of fact- I mean, I AM married to the guy, but it was taken more as a declaration of epic proportions!

I just want to take this time to officially declare the real status of my relationship.

We are separated.  We love each other.  We do not want to file for divorce.  We are taking this time to focus on our own personal issues (A first on his end).  Time will tell what happens for us, but we both want to save our marriage.  If things continue on this current path, I have every hope that we will eventually come back together and live happily ever after.  He is staying in Corpus Christi for now.  I am staying in Lubbock.  That's about it.

I hope this clears up any confusion.  OH, and I don't normally say this, but I'd appreciate it if you kept your opinions to yourself.  I've had my fill.


  1. I was about to tell you my opinion . . . but I guess I won't. :) he-he

  2. Wow! I haven't been on facebook in a few days, so I missed out on all the drama. I am so glad that y'all are taking things at your own pace. Don't worry about what others think. You are doing what you need to do!

  3. Brandi, I am proud for you and of you for taking this time to focus on yourself. If you aren't the best you can be for YOU, then you can't be the best you can be for your marriage either. Though I didn't express my opinion, I do believe that you should know that people want to protect you, as best they can, from being hurt and sometimes that means that they give you their unsolicited opinion. Keep moving forward- you and your marriage will be blessed.

  4. Not my opinion, just a fact - You are a strong woman!

  5. Boy am I happy that I have NEVER offered an opinion on your marriage!! LOL
    I will however offer an opinion on the Texas Tech thing!!
    Love you & only want the best for you~~EVER!!
