Well, I brought her from Georgia to California when I got a job here. She wasn;t having much luck getting a job. After about a year here, things between us were getting worse and worse. She had multiple personalities and I think some of them were not liking me anymore. Plus she had two children.
So I saw it as a kind of mixture of alimony and child support even though the kids were not mine. We still loved each other in the end, but it just was not working out.
