Love is a Battlefield
He is still technically married, even though they have been separated and have lived apart for five years. He told me this straight from the beginning, and after dealing with my own divorce years ago, I can understand how filing the paperwork is really just a detail. They have two children together: Boys, 15 and 18. He had really never had a reason to “pull the trigger” until he met me.
And it gets worse.
A few weeks into the relationship, I found out who his “wife” was: A girl I went to grade school with, and whom I haven’t seen or spoken to in 27 years.
