Why I’m Getting A Divorce In 2014

Why I’m Getting A Divorce In 2014

Before you start assuming I will be leaving my wife, let me just tell you that’s just simply not the case. I’m looking to leave someone else. Someone you may not know about. Someone who takes up most of my time, distracts me from spending time with my wife, and even spends time with me during the late hours of the night.

Her name is iPhone 5. She’s extremely smart, funny, reliable, and keeps me up to date with all the latest trends. And although she’s always by my side, I can’t help but notice that she is keeping me from spending time with the people who matter most in my life: God, my wife, my family, and my dreams.

She’s really good at keeping my attention. So much so that I’ve been known to completely ignore people when they are trying to have a conversation with me. She tempts me to use her apps while at church, weddings and funerals, instead of enjoying the moment un-distracted. She even keeps me from working on personal projects that have strict dead-lines.

She’s extremely insensitive when it comes to my safety, and is always tempting me to be with her while I drive. I can’t help but notice she is slowly infecting my social life, my marriage, and the lives of those around me. Many people act like it’s no big deal, but I imagine the longer one ignores this issue, the worse one’s personal relationships will be affected in the long run.

We need to bring our phones back to being an accessory, not a priority.

2014 Challenge: Divorce your phone, your apps, your social-feeds, and engage in relationships with people that actually matter. Vow to spend a significant amount of time off your mobile-devices, unplugged, and instead get back to making personal relationships that will stand the test of time.

Other than God, my wife deserves to be the #1 priority in my life and I don’t want anything to get in the way of that. The reality is, we’re all married to our phones in one way or another.

Mind you. Not everyone struggles with this. But I hope you will take this into consideration regardless.

  1. Learn to balance the time you spend on your phone.
  2. Make your phone an accessory rather than a priority.
  3. Give yourself limitations as to when and where your phone can be used.
  4. Control how you use your phone, and stop allowing your phone to control you.
  5. Try spending parts of your weekends unplugged, offline, and away from your mobile device.

In 2014, I vow to divorce my phone. Will you join me? Share this with a friend, and let’s get the “Divorce Your Phone” movement going.

-Jarrid Wilson

    This was not the type of divorce I expected but it certainly makes sense. I resisted getting an iPhone and it does become a major part of your life, distracting you from actual people and leisure time that could be spent doing better things. Good luck with your divorce!

    I have had a basic phone for a year now. My smart phone was too much of a distraction, and now I can spend more time with family, friends, my son, and actually give them the full attention they deserve.

    MRS JOY
    My name is joy and My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called DR EKA which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 7 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped DR EKA ‘s e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 3 days, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before. High DR EKA is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man… If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you. Try High DR EKA anytime, he might be the answer to your problems. Here’s his contact:{dreka14demons@gmail.c om}.

    PROPS to you for picking such an AMAZING title! I’m sure it really grabbed a lot of people’s attention. Do you really think it’s appropriate to compare using less technology to severing a bond created by God, pulling children away from parents, and severing families? I think it’s pretty inappropriate to use a word and concept the Bible literally tells us God hates (Malachi 2:16) to compare erasing some apps and reducing your surf time. Atleast your “tips” are really ground breaking, no one has ever suggested we should “unplug” or spend less time with our technology . I’m sure the word “divorcing” will really resonate with a lot of single mothers and children of broken homes, I hope they click on this so you can rack up more sponsors on American Express and “cheesy-free” stock photos! Because what could be less cheesy than comparing cell phones to child custody battles?!

    My name is Andrea Julie from Illinois in USA. Am here to testify of a great and powerful spell caster named Priest Kuvuki via his email: (Kuvukispelltemple@hotmail.com). I was so confused and devastated when my boy friend left me for another girl. I needed him back desperately because i loved him so much. So i contacted this great spell caster for a help. He helped me cast a return love spell on him and just within 12 to 16 hours my boy friend came back to me crying and begging for my forgiveness. I want to recommend this great spell caster to anyone that truly needs an urgent solution to a love break up. Simply contact the great Priest Kuvuki via his email address

    Is it my imagination or is there just a lot of really sick in the head people out there? I am not talking about phones – I am talking about comments here added by the strangest people I think I’ve ever heard from. This world is a frightening place indeed! Otherwise I agree, who has time for a smart phone and a life at the same time. No smart phone for me! Never had it – never will.

    In the mean time, some of the people commenting here – there is professional help available for you.

    I never believed in Love Spells or Magics until I met this special spell caster when i contact this man called okijashrinesolutiontemple@gmail.com Execute some business..He is really powerful..My wife divorce me with no reason for almost 4 years and i tried all i could to have her back cos i really love her so much but all my effort did not work out.. we met at our early age at the college and we both have feelings for each other and we got married happily for 5 years with no kid and she woke up one morning and she told me she’s going on a divorce..i thought it was a joke and when she came back from work she tender to me a divorce letter and she packed all her loads from my house..i ran mad and i tried all i could to have her back but all did not work out..i was lonely for almost 4 years…So when i told the spell caster what happened he said he will help me and he asked for her full name and her picture..i gave him that..

    At first i was skeptical but i gave it a try cos have tried so many spell casters and there is no solution…so when he finished with the readings,he got back to me that she’s with a man and that man is the reason why she left me…The spell caster said he will help me with a spell that will surely bring her back.but i never believe all this…he told me i will see a positive result within 3 days..3 days later,she called me herself and came to me apologizing and she told me she will come back to me..I cant believe this,it was like a dream cos i never believe this will work out after trying many spell casters and there is no solution..The spell caster is so powerful and after that he helped me with a pregnancy spell and my wife got pregnant a month later..we are now happy been together again and with lovely kid..This spell caster has really changed my life and i will forever thankful to him..he has helped many friends too with similar problem too and they are happy and thankful to him..This man is indeed the most powerful spell caster have ever experienced in life..Am Posting this to the Forum in case there is anyone who has similar problem and still looking for a way out..you can reach him here: okijashrinesolutiontemple@gmail.com

    Or then you can buy Nokia. All my friends who has iPhone are always doing something with them, but people who has Lumia or some other Nokias phone, they don’t use it that much. Because there is less apps available.

  • Cheryl Hoekstra April 6, 2014 at 6:21 AM

    Good post Jarrid. I’m also thinking of divorcing my Facebook page! (tongue-in-cheek readers, I too have been through a painful real divorce).

    On 2 separate occasions at church this past month, I’ve let grown men know their cellphone lights are very distracting. When they tell me they’re “reading the Bible” (as our Pastor is speaking) … I suggest they sit in the back row. Each time they, along with their wife, simply moved to another seat in the same row. I don’t get that. Our church makes it worse in that it dims the lights when the message starts. People get focused on the message and the worship (isn’t that why we’re there?) … and then some inconsiderate person raises his 5×3 beacon. For a few seconds would be bad enough, but these ‘fellow parishioners’ flash everyone behind them for the whole hour.

    I also see increasing numbers of people ignoring their kids all the time too while they have their nose in the almighty cell phone. Harry Chapin would call them modern day Cats in the Cradle.

  • Lorieta April 1, 2014 at 7:11 PM

    i am hear to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted traditional spell hospital for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he traditional spell hospital casted on him that make him comeback to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you traditional spell hospital for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact traditionalspellhospital gmail.com. and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.

      You dabble in witchcraft and think Jesus is at the heart of it? You talk of Jesus and casting spells in the same sentence? What is the root of your faith, your hope, your power and love? Are you trusting inJesus, or do you think He is so unpowerful that you must look for witches to perform spells to do what you want? Tell me, WHAT IS YOUR FAITH? Are you for Jesus, or Baal? ‘No man can serve two masters’…
