Does love just die, or fade away? Is there some kind of hidden expiration date on marriages that the general population is not privy to? Maybe because I’m now in my fifties I am more aware of the really high divorce rate among people of our age group who have been married longer than three decades.
The only thing I am certain of is the fact that my dear friend is completely devastated! I am heartbroken for her. I suspected that there were some rough patches in their relationship because of the whole “Stripper pole” thing, but I really didn’t over focus on that because all marriages have their moments of discord. I wish I could tell you that her husband is a total jerk, but he isn’t. He’s actually a kind, intelligent human, being with a big heart.
So what happened? I’m so shocked I’m not sure how to help her through whatever this may be. I just need to be able to get her through this evening.
