Last night’s episode of VH1’s “Basketball Wives” featured a very uncomfortable, albeit way overdue conversation between the show’s one original married couple: Eric and Jennifer Williams. And it raised a few questions.
Primarily we wondered why Jennifer was holding on so tightly to a loveless marriage, one in which she can’t even get in touch with her husband from one day to the next. Like Eric, we wanted to know why drama queen Jenn wouldn’t just walk away from a situation that clearly makes her so unhappy.
Then, tapping into a rare moment of depth, Jenn said something profound: married couples fall in and out of love all the time. What makes the marriage last is the couple’s dedication to making it work.
So we ask you, if the love is gone, do you tough it out until it’s back? Or is the absence of love the greatest reason to walk away from your marriage?
