The marriage was dying, but it wasn’t dead yet. They still loved each other, even though they had drifted apart. They both believed it could be repaired, though neither took out the toolbox and got started on the project. One day, she discovered his stash of porn on their shared computer. She stared in disbelief, feeling as if she had been hit hard in the stomach. She left the images up, and when he got home, he knew she knew. He begged for forgiveness, said he couldn’t explain it. She tried to forgive him, tried to stay, but she couldn’t.
