War of the Roses

war of the roses

I remember when I first saw War of the Roses, I thought it was a black comedy that was a little bizarre.

I wasn’t married then.

It is being rerun on cable tonight, back to back as a matter of fact.Jim usually catches part of it with me, and we laugh about the part where Michael Douglas says that he has more square footage in regard to splitting up the house.

Now, from a married persons’ perspective, I find this movie sad.I can see what happens. When you first meet someone one picture is sunny.Then , if you are combining egos, one partner tends to bulldoze the other one.It isn’t always an even run during the marriage.

I am thankful that my marriage is pretty good and I can still watch this movie and not worry about it hitting close to home for me.Still, it’s sad to think that someone actually lives with this kind of fear.

Thank God I am not one of them.
