We All Cheat on Our Spouses

Yes you do and believe it or not I have too, just not in the way you are thinking but in the way of breaking rules.

Yes you do!! You break rule too!

Though you don't realize it, realistically we all had a list of "rules" when we got married. Your had your list and your spouse had theirs. Then when the time was right the two of you sat down and agreed on which  rules to be accounted for......right?

Yea us either.

Most of our "rules" were unspoken expectations and the only one rule we truly agreed on was monogamy. Since then I have broken just about every one of "my" rules that I hold my hubs accountable for.

Project Happily Ever After is one of my favorite marriage blogs and this post, 5 Ways We All Cheat on Our Spouses, convicted me.

Alisa Bowman writes;
 "By definition, cheating involves dishonesty, usually to gain an unfair advantage." 

Deception is the key and avoidance is the term, the term that used to help make the guilty party look innocent or just plain good. You may call it a "little white lie". What ever you call it you are cheating in the game of marriage.

Seriously when was the last time you;
  • You said yes to something when really No was the answer
  • You spilled out to your friends something your spouse confided in you
  • Called truce to an argument you are still stewing over
  • Bribed your children to cover for you even if it were for something as small as a broken dish
Now these examples may not be vow breakers but flip them around and stand in your spouse's shoes.......

How does it feel?

Ladies do you think these "little white lies" make your hubs feel wanted? accepted? loved? admired?

Through my journey of becoming a submissive wife I had to look at what is acceptable not for just him but for me, as well.

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
