My Temporary Marriage
We both agreed to the delusional fix-it fantasy too soon after his wife left. We dragged four adolescents in our wake for four years of stubborness, disguised as commitment and hope. I finally found the courage to listen--really listen--to his complaints and I realized that he wasn't happy and I wasn't either. I saved us all by initiating the divorce and then it was pretty much Happily Even After once the severance pay arrived and our half of the "family" moved out. Love & Thanks to all who suffered and survived.
