Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

We do not have, and I do not believe we will ever have, the relationship that either of us wanted when we got married. On the other hand, we have a better relationship than we had for many years. If it stays this way, I can imagine being content to stay with her after the kids leave. That is not something I would have said for much of the past 10 years.

When you can see it coming, duck!
