>>> back with a headline that is getting a lot of clicks online. marriage isn't for you. tamarine has a story of how people are reacting to that.

>> yeah sh it's interesting. they're calling it an unconventional love letter written by seth adam smith . he is married to kim. they were friends for ten years but after a year and a half of marriage, things went south. they moved to florida so she could study, a graduate student there. and like so many couples, they found themselves at this cross roads . he wrote this post. having been married only a year and a half, i've recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn't for me. he goes on to write, guys, to all who are reading this article, married, almost married, single or even the sworn bachelor or bachelorette, i want you to know that marriage isn't for you. no true relationship of love is for you. love is about the person you love. we had a chance to interview him and in his interview he said writing this post was a capstoeb of everything i'm learning. hopefully someone going through a similar experience will be able to turn around their relationship. that was my hope. they were able to turn around their relationship. if this is raw this is real, i think it reflects what a lot of couples experience. he put this on the internet. pouring out his heart to all of us. his marriage is mended. i think people can learn from it as well. it's really interesting, guys.

>> the headline means something a lot different than what the article says.

>> pulls you in. there is a deeper message there.

>> all right. thank you, tamarine.
