bfg1 saidPeople that stay married or in a relationship that isnt true need to grow balls in my book
I do have to disagree on this one point, bfg, with a caveat. If someone chooses
to remain in a relationship that isn't right for him any longer (for arguments' sake, he stays in the relationship for the sake of kids), and has full disclosure with his partner and remains completely
committed (no 'arrangements' on the side), then I'd say more power to him, because he's making a sacrifice that I'm not sure I would have been able to make, and I think that takes guts.
As it was, I loved my wife deeply enough that I almost tried to make that choice...I cared enough for her that I would have lived that life, and been happy. Maybe it wouldn't have been the 'right' life for me, but it was a good
one. Fortunately, she
was the one who decided it wasn't fair enough to either one of us to stay married and deny ourselves a shot at something else.
Wow. This subject makes me uncharacteristically soap-boxy. Apologies if anyone takes any offense.
