From USA Today –

Gayle McCormick, a 73-year-old retired prison guard in Washington state who describes herself as a “Democrat leaning toward socialist,” says she decided to end her marriage of 22 years after her husband announced at a lunch with friends last year that he was planning to vote for Trump. She says it was a “deal breaker.”

“I was in shock,” she told People magazine. “It was the breaking point. The Trump issue was the catalyst.”

Okay, I know this apparent feud over the last election seems to be unending.  Will it ever end, we ask.  Why can’t folks just get over it?  I know friendships have been injured by this, but really – A MARRIAGE?

I guess when you reach 73, you just get to a point where you don’t want to argue.  It takes a lot of energy to do so.  We’d rather either give in or give up.  It’s tough trying to process the information and have the right comeback anymore.  Physically, it turns your blood pressure up and that isn’t good when you’re in your seventies.  By the time you’ve gotten started with the argument, you’ve forgotten what I was about in the first place.

Maybe this is what happened to Gayle.

There could be more to this story.  Maybe the woman was looking for an excuse to get out of her marriage and this was the turning point for her.  I would hope that a simple thing like this would not be cause for divorce.

Who knows why people do what they do?  We become shocked by this sortof news or we simply overlook it, but this is a real issue folks.  People are at each other’s throats because of a presidential election.  Why can’t we get on with our normal uninteresting lives and forget all this nonsense.





As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  1. sounds to me that Gayle just wanted an excuse—and what a poor one it was…and sad…

    It’s also crazy that this type of issue is being reported as news worthy, as in: “Breaking News: Another woman divorces her husband over a crazy reason which is the absolute, final, last straw!” I guess the media is just big business at the end of the day.

    We all need a break from endless political rancor. Let’s get back to loving God and one another.
