Their marriage staggered on, but it was mortally wounded. She asked him to go to counseling; he replied that he didnít believe in it, so there was no point in going. At that point, she realized that she was the one who was going. This half-life would go on indefinitely if she didnít take action. A friend offered to take her in. She spent the day packing, trying not to drown in memories as she packed item after item. When he came home from work, she told him she was leaving, and burst into tears. He just stood there, silent.
