A couple I know has split up. A couple everyone thought was in it for the long run. The male half is with someone that none of us think is, er, worthy of him, although she’s been angling for him ever since they met. Not to sound like my mother or anything…but his old girlfriend was clever, classy, cute and dare I say marriage material? This one, not so much. She has more in common with the specimens who used to frequent my old house although to give credit where it’s due, I’m sure she’s not quite of that class. Let me just say that she’s already had brief encounters of the intimate kind with at leas two others in our circle.
So, to my point: no relationship is infallible. Whether it’s the small things (the fact that he never returns from a trip with everything he took away, whether it’s a tube of sunblock or my digital camera), or a big, sudden, painful blowout that comes out of nowhere, cracks can appear in even the most solid foundation.
