Well, That Didn't Work

So much for that theory. We entered into our agreement because we were both feeling trapped. We both felt like all we needed was a little space, a little freedom. We wanted to be the prodigal son and then come home to the fatted calf. It sounded like a good idea at the time. What it was was a last ditch effort to save our marriage. Unfortunately, both of us made the most of our freedom and it didn't help. We've realized that we're just not happy. We've both felt it for a long time but neither knew that the other felt the same. We were both toughing it out because we'd made the commitment and we were going to see it through. But if neither of us are happy, what are we committing to except growing bitterness and resentment?

So, anyway, a few months ago we decided to separate. She's moved into the guest room until we can sell the house. We still get along so it's not been too bad.

Then it's the single life - hanging out by the pool, watching whatever I want whenever I want, dating (actual dating, not discreet gettogethers).

My new blog will be about that. Hopefully, I'll have plenty to write about in the coming year.
