Many Years Ago

I was married to a woman who was very cold-hearted.

We both shared traditional beliefs about marriage but something within her made her judgmental of me and others.

She appeared to be a warm and friendly person but deep down she was icy, cold and mean.

She had a stone stare and would cast people off to the wind easily.

It is a shame that she never saw the beauty in relationships with people.

She thought people were around her to serve her.

Her sense of entitlement was astounding.

After many years of marriage, I could see that this was not the person I wanted to have children with or spend the rest of my life with.

Unhappy about having a "failed" marriage, I decided to get a divorce.

I grew up in an era where divorce was really a very bad thing.

The stigma attached to divorce was that it was something that haunted you for the rest of your life.

Anyway, I got past that and eventually found a wonderful woman who is smart, kind, beautiful and everything I wanted in a wife and more.

When we see that relationships are not helping us to be better people it is best to leave them. I am glad that you found the strength to leave a bad marriage, grow through the experience and find me. I am very happy that I am everything you were seeking in a wife.

It's wonderful to know that you can get past a bad relationship or marriage and find that one person who makes life finally fulfilled.<br />

You two will be the couple that years from now others will look upon and admire. And they will wonder how they will ever be able to find that person to share that kind of love with.

Thank you for your very kind and generous words. Wilde and I both came from bad marriages and worked hard on ourselves as individuals before going into other relationships. Thankfully, we met each other at the right time in our lives.
