Jon and Kate . . . Not Doin' So Great
I stomached the premiere of Jon and Kate Plus 8 with my wife last night. Reluctantly. It was pretty sad.
First of all - who are Jon and Kate and why should I care?
I guess I care because they need prayer right now. I'm not a fan of the show, but my wife and kids are. I do know that alot of Christian couples have elevated them to a high place and now with a possible fall . . . well.
Instead of giving my extrapolation at this juncture, I have found a blog that really reflects where I am at with the whole thing. It's a worthwhile read to ponder. Go here to read it.
Why continue with a new season on the show? Why still go on book and speaking tours when your own marriage needs repair?
Why have your main focus on the kids when your spouse should come first? I know its only by God's grace it could be any of us and that there are extra stresses having multiples of multiples and that a whole lot of couples with multiples end up in divorce.
Hopefully they won't be another casualty of faith, fame, and fortune.
