When the moon is in the 7th house…

Besides practicing my skills at wedding ring observation, I’ve been thinking about the people I know and their relationships. In my extended group of friends there are three couples who are going to be getting married in the next year or two. However, there are at least seven individuals who are in the process of splitting up after a long relationship, engagement, or marriage. It’s nice to know I’m not alone but it’s odd to be at this nexus of crumbling relationships. I don’t think I’ve ever known this many people who are in one stage of separation or another, all at the same time. I’ve only had one or two friends divorce since I’ve known them but that’s it. And any relationships that ended hadn’t lasted all that long - a year or two, but not six or seven. Maybe this just comes from making friends with couples but many of these people I’ve known for years, before they were coupled. If I were into astrology I’d have to say something about stars aligning.

Maybe going askew is more correct.

Interestingly, I also have observed a high number of couples I know that going through break ups.

Just think about Andy and Me if you need to be cheered.
