But maybe, just maybe, someday you will reemerge from all of this, stronger than ever. And perhaps, find the will to love again.
And of course, you want to be kind to your now ex-wife, whose life you shared for almost a decade, by being considerate when you do meet that special someone. Because after all, that’s just common decency…
