 philandering husband
3 close friends who aren't as close as they seem
4 children, all under 18
6 ¼ affairs
51 years,
17 years of marriage thrown away
2 ex-wives, maybe that should have been a sign
700 read texts
8 missed calls, all from the divorce attorney
4 states away, staying with your mother
1 wedding dress, ripped to shreds
2 wedding rings collecting dust
1 box of memories, hidden away in the closet
2 houses divided
1 broken heart.
