So true, Bubbles, for anyone in these circumstances.

Unfortunately, part of that difference is how gut-wrenching the process can be (not that the status quo isn't gut-wrenching). I have to believe that it really shouldn't be this hard...

Only actions produce results, but taking those actions are often difficult and downright scary because of the risks that accompany them. Bubbles, I have to salute you for the courageous way you have handled the difficulties in your marriage and came through it for the better.

You're just jealous because you can't hear the voices in my head!
