Doug, thank you for your thoughts. I agree that as painful as it is, a spouse dying is most likely less destructive than the marriage coming apart by divorce. I'd further add that my experience affirms your second point. My wife's demand came a shock to me, but she had made her mind long before telling me. Even as I held out hope the marriage could be saved, she never wavered once from her resolve to bring it to an end. Still, just as you say, I encourage those I meet in divorce situations that it ain't over till it's over, and even then, it might not be over. God brought me to a place of acceptance when he showed me unequivocally that it was over. Thank you again for your thoughts.

We want to hear from you.
