I'd been legally separated for over a decade (couldn't divorce because I needed to stay on his health insurance). Was visiting my sons in CO where I grew up, ran into an old school friend and fell in love for the first time. This was at a festival where I got my face butterfly-painted with some little girls, we were giggling and my partner was watching with an amused grin on his face and snapping a photo. I looked at him and the world stopped as I realized I wanted this forever. The stars were aligned, divorce was simple and I have the best health insurance in the world at a very reasonable price - yet I would have died in a ditch rather than miss one moment of the joy that we share.
