and they almost lived happily after
There are many reasons to marry and love should not be the essential one. It is a fickle emotion and redesigns itself during the course of two lifetimes. The man I was seeing before Big Dave stayed with me eight years before I recognized the decay that crept in. There was this other woman, younger, no children and that explained why he disappeared for weekends at a time. The cowboy is true blue, a regular boy scout and I know he will not stray. I'm not good at being married, I admit that, I am better alone. I have always treasured my private moments, watching the moon travel across my sky light and knowing my thoughts will not be interrupted.
