So, my wife cheated on me quite a while back. For 2 years I have been carrying this shit around with me. You know... "What could I have done better? Why did she do this to the kids? How could I have missed it for so long?" etc. I have a friend, a single one, who had been trying to get me out of my funk basically ever since it happened. I never was that great single. That's probably why it fucked me up so bad in the first place. Here I was, loyal and caring and my wife was just a pin cushion who was a good actress. So, anyway, my good friend who had been triving to get me to snap out of my funk found a book for me by total chance. It's called Your Wife: The Effect of Female Promiscuity on American Culture and Human Morality. I had to share it here because it opened my eyes and closed my wounds. It slices through the notion of socially accepted required accomodations and unearned fluffy treatment that I bestowed on my cheating wife. I will never...never.... make the same mistake again. I have my kids. My money has grown to healthy size again, and I have shed the bullshit self-doubt. If I ever get married again, it will be knowing what I now know thanks largely to that book. It is amazing how something so simple had a power to connect with me and heal in a way I couldn't, despite a lot of prior efforts.
