Who did she think she was kidding?

There is this lovely young mother at work. Relatively new to the job. We often get the chance to just chat.

During our initial conversations she mentioned that her husband was in Alaska. She felt they were meant to be together. She finds my long marriage to be inspiring. She can't wait for her husbands training to be over. She spoke with pride about the fact that he was only 17 when they got married and his mom had to sign a permission form for the wedding to take place.

To be honest ... alarm bells went off in my head. Think about it.

She is young ... only 22. They have a child who is 4 years old. They have been married for almost 5 years. (Can we say shotgun wedding? I don't know. I don't know the exact dates. But it sure smells like gunpowder to me.)

She initially began discussing how much she missed her husband. How she hasn't seen him in three months. How hard it is to raise their son without him. I just sympathized. Nothing much I could say.

Then I learned that she came home to visit a dying aunt and just never bothered to return to Alaska after the funeral. Her statement when I asked why? Alaska is no place to raise a child.

Excuse me?!

Hasn't Alaska been populated for a very long time? Humans have been having children and raising them there for ages.

Once again alarm bells in my head went off.

This past week she finally felt comfortable enough with me to say ...
"J is the type of guy I would go for if I wasn't married. Don't get me wrong. I love my husband and would never.... But J is cute. Don't you think?"

Hmmmm ... do I see divorce papers in her future? Yes I do. Especially now that she has also confided in me that she and her husband fight ALL the time.

My, oh my. You should have seen the look on her face when J admitted to us that he had once had a relationship with a married woman.

I think I see my co-worker dipping her toes in the extra-martial waters.

Here is where my post title comes into play. Who did she think she was kidding?

Me or herself?

You are most likely correct. Now I'm wondering if the young man 'J' is interested and might take her up on her suttle offers.

I can't help it. I love a good drama from time to time.

Welcome to our blog [blog GoddesOfTheDawn], thanks for stopping in.

Wow... alarm bells going off with every sentence of that story. *shudder* Sometimes you have to just smile and nod because nothing you say will convince them they could be wrong. I've seen this pattern too much in members of my family and friends. Always repeats itself because we want some kind of comfort, even if it is temporary, or am I just reading too much into her story? Or projecting my family's experiences on this type of thing?

Btw, nice to see a post again, was getting worried

Take care,
C.

Considering that you and I are seeing the same things, hearing the same alarms and smelling the same gunpowder ... I don't think you are projecting anything.

Thanks for the concern intierzha. Makes me smile to think that at least one member on this site might care about this handle. But really ... there is no need. Remember, this is an alternate site for us. We are actually on quite a bit. Heck! We even visit you every once in a while ....

Now I've got you wondering don't I? Sorry, I'm just in the mood to tease.

The whole point behind creating this profile was to be able to write about couples that we know. It's kind of hard to write about things when the people you are writing about actually read your primary blog. Did that make any sense at all? I have to laugh at myself sometimes. It's taken a lot of thinking in order to post here. After all, we want the story to come out without actually naming anyone.
