Regardless of Whether You’re Married or not, You Should Read This!

One night, when I came home, my wife was serving dinner. I took her hand and said that I needed to tell her something. She sat down and waited for me to start talking. I wanted to ask for divorce.

At first, she didn’t appear annoyed and just quietly asked me why. I avoided answering and she got angry. Moreover, she threw the chopsticks at me and accused me of not being a man. She began crying and this lasted the whole night. I didn’t have the courage to tell her that I didn’t love her more. I just felt pity for her.

I drafted a divorce agreement stating that she can have the house, the car, and 30% of my company. When I presented it to her, she tore it into pieces and started crying loudly. I felt a bit relieved because the idea of divorce had obsessed me for weeks, until I gathered the courage to tell her the news.

The next day, when I came home, I found my wife writing something at the table. I was really tired and went to sleep right away. At one moment I woke up and she was still writing at the table. The next morning, she told me that she was writing her divorce conditions which were the following: she didn’t want anything from me, but needed one additional month with me before the actual divorce. As she explained, she wanted us to continue living our life as normal as possible. She said that this is because our son had exams in one month and she didn’t want to cause him additional concerns.

I agreed. She also asked me to recall how I carried her into our bridal room on our wedding day, and, what’s more, she asked me to do this every morning for this one month period. I thought this was crazy, but in order to make our last days bearable, I agreed.

My wife and I had no body contact since I told her about the divorce. The first day of our so-called “one month agreement”, we both felt weird when I carried her into the bedroom. On the second day, we both felt much relaxed. She leaned on my chest and I could smell her perfume. This is when I realized that I hadn’t paid much attention to her. I realized that she was no longer young as she had these fine wrinkles on her face and her hair had gray spots.

For a minute there, I began wondering what I’ve done to her. On the fourth day, I felt as if our intimacy was returning. I realized that this woman dedicated ten years of her life to me. One day, she was choosing what to put on. Some of the dresses she tried had grown bigger as she lost weight.

All of a sudden, while I was standing near her, I realized that she was in so much pain. I stroked her hair. Then, our son entered the room and said that it is time to carry his mother. This became an essential part of his life. She called him and hugged him tightly. I turned my head away because I didn’t want to change my mind concerning the divorce.

On the last day, I could hardly move when I had her in my arms. I didn’t feel that we lacked intimacy. When I drove to work, I informed Jane, that I wouldn’t proceed with the divorce.

She couldn’t believe what I was saying, but I was decisive and told her that I probably felt that my marriage was boring because I failed to appreciate the small things in life, not because we didn’t love each other. Jane slapped me and left crying. On the way home, I bought flowers and when the vendor asked me what to write on the card, I smiled and said: I will carry you out every morning until death do us apart.

That night, when I arrived home, with the flowers and the happy news, I found my wife dead in our bedroom. She suffered from cancer for months and I was too busy to even notice. She knew that she would soon die, and she wanted to spare me from any negative behavior from our son, if we divorced.

All in all, this story is a reminder that the small things in life are what matters. It’s never the house, car, and the money. Therefore, always find the time to be your spouse’s friend and do little things for each other and work on your intimacy. This will make you feel happier.
