In the grand scheme of things.........

I guess that what I think doesn't really matter. But, that being said, I am so sad and disappointed about the decision that Jon and Kate Gosselin have made. I cannot even begin to fathom what they have been going through. (I have been divorced before, but not with any children involved).
I sat and watched their show last night and felt like weeping. Sobbing, really. They were talking about their marriage. The end of their marriage. And they are worrying about where to put playhouses for their kids. Come on!!!! This is the rest of their children's lives they are talking about.
Let me preface this comment with this sentence. Of course, I don't live in their house and cannot possibly know what all has transpired and what has been said between them, but I believe God can heal all.
They are teaching their children that it is okay to walk away from a situation rather than try to fix it. I don't know if they sought counseling or not. But it doesn't appear that they have, otherwise, it would have been shown. Not judging, just sayin'.
I am a married woman with serious issues in my marriage and we are currently in counseling for these issues. And no, my life is not all pleasant, but we are trying to trust God to help us.
The two of them sat on those couches and espoused how much they were doing this for the children. Really?? I think not. And it makes me sad for those little kiddies.
Am I part of the problem? Did my watching their show end their marriage? I think not.
Please be nice in your comments, this is just my opinion in this matter and do not need anyone ripping me a new one just because my opinion differs from yours. I really would like to hear your take on it, just be nice. I'll respect anything you have to say as long as you are not ugly.

My tivo only recorded the first 30 minutes so I am not sure what was said in the last 30. I think what has shocked me about all of this is that for me this show really showed me marriage in the raw (as raw can be with tv crews there). I wanted them to make it. It is sad but the problems were surfacing many seasons ago. I was not surprised they had problems but disappointed they gave up.
