Who cares? If I had that kind of money, and she continued to reject me, I'd leave. As I have said before, one of the reasons I am not motivated to be more successful at work is that it enables me to avoid having to draw a boundary. I can tell myself I can't afford to divorce her. If I COULD easily afford to divorce her, then I would have to make a difficult decision. This way, I can continue to avoid taking responsibility for the situation.


I wrote my critical thesis for my MFA on passive characters in the fiction of Anne Tyler. You would make a very fascinating character Hold. I think Anne Tyler would love you.
