They say a child brings a couple closer together. In their case, that was very much true. To see the three of them together was very hard for me, I was very unhappy, but I did not show it, I did not want to spoil their happiness, so I just made myself as absent as I could.
I was absent from our marriage for two years. Twice I left, and twice she begged me to come back! Why? I was very unsure about my role within my own life, but could not bring myself not to go back when she asked. I was a mess.
