my ex - controlling. ex lives in OR, remarried 3 months after our divorce, has 6 kids. UGH!
David,Thank you for sharing your story. I almost went down that road of marriage. Fortunately for me I could get a job (after high school) and joined the Army where I met other fellow gays. Vivian (her name) was waiting for me but it was too late. I've never seen her since but I ran into her brother about ten years ago. He told me she had EIGHT kids. Oh no, that would not have been the life I wanted. So I will die, going to my final resting place, never having KNOWN a woman. And this is just as well because Vivian was (and probably still is) a very nice woman. Someday I hope to see her again before I check out. Just out curiosity. Ron
I was so close to marriage. SOOOO glad it didn't work out. A kid caused the breakup - not ours, mostly mine, a foster child whom she couldn't have appropriate boundaries with. I couldn't have married someone who couldn't separate herself from a child. I never laid eyes on her again after we moved apart after a stormy year locked in a lease together. God works in mysterious ways. Since then, I've not ever had a real long term relationship, and it would seem that is how I will go: forever single.Peace <3Jay
Jay,God does work in mysterious ways. Thank goodness you didn't get married to her. As for being single, you're young yet, plenty of time for that Perfect Match.Ron
that is a lovely entry; thank you for sharing.
