Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

The high cost of divorce and unwed mothers

Let's face it, marriage is not for cowards. One of the best pieces of advice I ever heard about marriage was from a boss of mine. She and her husband were celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary and her husband did an incredibly romantic thing. He dropped off a stack of beautifully wrapped gifts at the end of the work day. She opened them to find a complete outfit, down to the lingerie and stockings. There were instructions for her to meet him out front. He whisked her away for a weekend at the Pfister.

On Monday we wanted the buzz on her weekend. I had not known her a long time and so I assumed her marriage had always been like that. She then gave me the secret to a long marriage. The reason we just celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary this past weekend was because when we were first married, we did not know we could get divorced!
