Do not judge a person by his/her marital status; it is not indicative of his/her character.
I made that quote up.
It came up as I overheard two women talking about other women. “Most of them are separated from their husbands,” they said in such disapproving tones.
You would think that in this millenium, people would start to think differently.
I, who am still quite married and never been divorced, am quite offended for these women. Why should being separated from their husbands put them in a negative light? We don’t know what kind of husbands they have, or what situations they were in.
