You know this statement is fabricated when they say they "prayerfully" decided to part. If they truly prayed and listened to God,they would hear him say NO - HONOR YOUR VOWS AND REMAIN MARRIED!

It's a bitter pill to swallow, but when it's over you must recongnize it and move on. I met Mr. Sanders near the Galleria and he was very nice and I was impressed. Deion brother you'll be alright without the added drama in your life, been there and it gets better.
