Shock Lingers On

I was contacted out of the blue by a friend from long ago. Her contact reminded me of the difficult position she placed me and a lot of other people in back then. She was married to another friend and I thought they were the ideal couple. They had kids in collage and all seemed to be right with the world. Then it was discovered that she had been having an affair with his best friend and she wanted a divorce. We like many of their other fired were caught in the middle not knowing what to do.
Some marriages seem like they are made in heaven but take a lot of work here on earth. A marriage takes commitment, attention, care and a lot of love. Those of us on the out side can not know how a mate can drift from loyal spouse to adultery and divorce. I am still sad about that day now over twelve years ago.


  1. So sad, isn't it?

    It is so hard to stay married in this day and age--so many temptations, excuses...I hope she learned her lesson. Affairs are not worth the destruction they cause. (both here and in the afterlife)

  2. The shock and change certainly lingers. I always try to remain positive as I never fully understand the circumstances.

    Happy Summer Larry,
