had the perfect wedding. I had the perfect husband. And I had the perfect life.
But a few months ago, it all shattered.
Mark and I went through an unimaginable loss. I’ve been sinking ever since and falling into an abyss of grief. I don’t know who I am anymore. I don’t know who he is, either. It’s all a mess, and things are only getting worse.
Maybe I need to start over. Maybe I need a new life. And maybe he does too.
But what about our marriage?
This time, my thoughts turned back to the baby shower. Two things stood out in my mind. First, a large part of me wanted to avoid it, wanted to pretend it wasn’t happening. Something inside me had known life would go on, that celebrations and milestones wouldn’t stop, but did this have to be the first one? Second, I hated the way Mark didn’t seem to understand why the event was such a trigger. That was the worst part. He’d been so cold about it, so stiff, so unfeeling . . . just like he’d been since Frances died. Robotic and mechanical would never have described him before.
Before that moment. Before that night. Before everything we had fell to pieces.
The truth was, deep inside, I knew what I needed to do about it—the step I had to take to start us both on the road to something better. I’d been denying it for a long time, but I couldn’t push it away anymore. Mark’s few nights home late from work had turned into three nights a week, then four. Our weekends had become a blur of getting household chores done before winter set in. But I was already living in winter. It was already cold and dark to me. Our marriage was on its last few breaths and I knew it.
