After all, I intended to stay married until one of us was dead. I was from the old school, where you just didn't get divorced. Nobody in my family was divorced. Divorce was what "other people" did. I couldn't imagine not being with my husband.
Until one day he simply wasn't there anymore.
Now, almost ten years later, I have a hard time remembering why we stayed together for so long. (Nearly 30 years if you count the time we lived together before we got married.) The person I fell in love with was long gone. Not what I intended, but it happened.
"Unintended" suits him now.
Oops.... sorry! That was unintended.
