The following is an edited exchange I recently had with a new anonymous friend:
“I was “caught” more than once. The outcomes were never anything that should ever see the light of day. The Ex had me perfectly positioned with her threats. So I gave everything I owned to one of the local coven (our group was certainly magical!) and moved into the closet.
Given all that you publish I wonder how your wife allows you that much time away from hubbydom. Mine would have walked away. Your relationship must be more than special.”Anonymous Friend
Yes, our relationship is very special on many levels that you never see here. In the simplest terms, I told her and she only wished for my happiness, because it was pretty clear at the time, I was not a happy person.
So, as you can see in every single picture here, I am happy. It is better for any relationship for the participants to be happy. Now she lives with a happy human being (almost all the time) and I also am a much better husband.
I then took that gift she gave me and returned it ten fold. I volunteer, doing good for others. I have found ways to generate income for the household through Kandi. I also became a borderline elite level athlete for my advanced age, having run the Boston Marathon last year.
While I do go out with friends, the significant majority of my time out is in volunteer situations.
Yes, my situation is unique, but then again, I would like to think I am as well.
Love the conversation, Anonymous! Your situation, sadly, is not uncommon. But as I have told many who have said I was “lucky”, including a great friend, I pointed out that yes, in this circumstance I am blessed. But my friend, younger than me, is about to retire with a full government pension, never again worrying about income or health care. I, because of other circumstances, will retire on the day of my funeral, working until I die. So, I asked her, who really is the “lucky” one? Neither, we both earned what we have!
Here as always if you want to continue the conversation!
Have a great weekend,
I will be at Keystone again this year. If you are going, reach out. Find me! I want to give any Kandi’s Land reader a big hug and if you want, the first drink is on me!
