i'll give you a clue, hija. when my parents separated, it was because one of them fell out of love. the other tried to heal the gap, but it was too late.Originally Posted by michelle005
it was almost a decade afterwards that one of them told me what really happened. one fell out of love and had to courage to admit it and face the truth. of course, that one was blamed for the failed marriage for years, but when it was explained to me, i hugged that parent and said, "at least you made a decision and stuck to it. and now i see that you're happy with your life, i'm happy for you too."
that's what i mean by making a decision and sticking to it. that parent was ridiculed and 'hated' by the whole family, extended family included, but stuck to the decision he/she made. it was years before everything was fine, but that parent did not waver on his/her decision. and i'm proud of that fact.
