@romazicon8 You had asked me the question, "How is it that you were never in love with him?" When I was a senior in high school, I met my previous boyfriend, who took me to the prom. It was a very romantic relationship for about 10 months. I had just turned 18, was swept off my feet, and I felt I was in love with him. That fall he was drafted and went to Vietnam. I was devastated, had just started college, and was moping around and very sad. A friend of mine talked me into going on a blind date with her boyfriend's friend -- that was how I met my ex-husband. I was very reluctant to go on the date -- really didn't want to, and felt guilty. Although we had agreed that we could date other people during the two years my boyfriend would be gone. We had discussed getting engaged when he got back, if we felt the same way. My mother was such a huge influence on my life and thinking -- she preferred my future ex (the blind date) to my previous boyfriend because the former was going to college, as I was. My mother was obsessed with education, and always put a great deal of pressure on me in that area. I really used to believe that whatever she said was the gospel. She basically decided for me, like with most other things. I eventually broke up with the previous boyfriend, and sort of talked myself into this was the right decision. We got engaged about a year and a half later, and married three years after we met. So I had actually been with him for 33 years. My ex-husband knew about the other boyfriend -- he was told about him before he met me. It was as if there was a third party, or a ghost, in our relationship -- he was extremely jealous and insecure, which he tried very hard to hide. It turned out my whole life had been based on a lie. Neither of us could be who we really were -- now I can be!.....
