So, YGirl, I don't think you're completely off base with some of your assumptions. I did, however, want to clarify the difference between I had internal issues I didn't need to work through before the triad and our marriage had issues, because the former is certainly true, but the latter is not.
I stand corrected. Fair enough - I probably should have thrown the proverbial "and/or" in there and said "existing issues with regard to yourself and/or
your marriage" because like I said, I don't know you well enough to tell where one thing ends and where another begins, for lack of encompassing terminology.
