Writing Exercise -15 Minutes - continuing story
We get along. We keep our real thoughts of one another to ourselves and so we can get together and not dislike one another. I shouldn't complain really. She lives miles and miles away from my husband and I. When we first dated, my husband lived with his mother so I saw her a lot. Seeing someone that much kind of gives you an eyeful of that persons flaws - and how much you want to be with your significant other. He could become this woman one day - minus the make up and boobs...well, I hope. When he would be away from the home she would tell me all about her life and her children's. Things my husband and I had not talked about yet. After so many of these TMI conversations, I finally broke and had a huge fight with him. It wasn't about him really, but it was because of him I was breaking. To his credit, he heard me and so he found his own place and 6 months later we were engaged and then soon after married. For that concession I have promised myself to be the best wife and daughter-in-law when we have to attend events together. Tit for tat, after all.
