I wonder what's the story behind every single mother I've met. Because, more often than not, I see what nice persons they are. And, what lovely children they have.
I love my wife very much, but there are times during our almost 2 decades of marriage that things went so bad that I wonder if I should just leave..... And, in my anger and naivety, I probably would have, accept for the only thing that make me want to stay, no matter how bad the situation is. I can't abandon my children.
But, this is actually self-serving.... I believe that what goes around comes around. I am very afraid that if I abandon them now, they will one day abandon me.
Well, Hamlet said, thus conscience does make cowards of us all.....
So, to those who abandon these nice ladies and their children.... you are very brave or very stupid.
(And , you know what.... some of these women will be angry at me for call their exes stupid).
