    Does anyone feel like you are the black sheep

    at family functions? I was married for less than a year, I was madly in love but my "wife" was conflicted and ran. I feel like my family and friends judge me for making a poor decision, it's frustrating because I just wanted to be happy and in love and now I wear this scar.
