My husband and I were high school sweethearts. We married right after college graduation, and had two beautiful children. We were happy for 30 years. One day completely out of the blue he told me he wanted a divorce. He fell in love with his secretary. How cliché, his secretary? I was devastated, I had never looked at another man.
Our divorce was final last week. I can’t get off the couch, it is too hard to sleep in our bed. The empty closet sends my head spinning. I want to shoot him but know that is not rational. I cry every day. I just want my old life back, is that too much to ask.
