I feel like I've reached the age where either all of my friends are having babies, or all of my friends are getting divorced. It is frankly fucking alarming and while no one is pressuring my relationships to change or produce offspring, it's still weirding me out. Like, why does it seem alarmingly like it's EITHER babies OR divorce for everyone moving into their 30's right now? Just today I learned that our friends K. and C. are getting divorced. They got married within weeks of my husband and I. We were at each other's weddings. It's really sad because they seemed so into each other years afterward, but now this. It's really rough for K. because the whole thing is very sudden; he walked in on her in a compromising position with her boss. :I I don't know. I guess it's just scary that most of the people in all of my social groups are going through such major changes. I'm expecting a change too, my other partner/girlfriend* is moving in with us this summer. I know it's going to work. I mean, it's not just going to work, it's going to be fucking awesome, but man, if other people's relationships could stop crashing around us and contracting baby infestations** that would be great. I guess I'm just sad. And of course this kind of thing makes you shudder and go "what if" which is just ugh. Ugh. No. Ugh. I've been with my loves since I was 19 and 20 years old, that's a significant portion of a 29 year old person's life! I don't ever want to be without them, and seeing someone like K. who I'm sure felt the same go through this pain is really disturbing. I feel so bad for him. Also... I just have to vent a bit about the specific circumstances surrounding my friends' divorce. I mean, if you REALLY want to make out with someone else can't you just fucking talk about that like goddamn adults? For FUCK'S sake. Sneaking around, cheating on someone you promised to love, likely giving them serious trust issues they'll have to deal with for the rest of their lives. No! Why?! Bluh. :c *I am in my own OT3 hell yeah **note, I love babies. Right now I'm a huge fan of visiting other people's babies though, and not super interested in the idea of producing/adopting one.
