It was a fascinating story that connected us with Sam. We have known each other all our lives, from childhood. They were neighbors. When they were small, they often played together, and when they got older, they began hanging out with the same company. I saw him as a brother, nothing more.
During my teenage years, I started dating a guy who was a friend of Sam’s. It was fine for a while, but Sam always tried to get us into a fight and told me horrible things about him. It seemed strange to me at the time, but I thought he was just jealous.
In the end, it turned out not to be as friendly as it seemed initially.
It is not easy to remember how it happened, but Sam managed to get me away from that boy, and consequently, I lost a boyfriend. That is how our relationship started.
It seems unbelievable that a crush from my teenage years has become a 25-year marriage after only a few months.
My husband worked all day long. I dealt with the housework. And then she got pregnant again and again. There was nothing unusual about our family. My husband worked all day long. I dealt with the housework.
Consequently, we had three beautiful children as a result of our marriage.
Even though we were not wealthy, we did not suffer financially either. Sam always tried to financially reach out to our family to keep us from worrying about things. No matter how challenging it was for him. I greatly respected him for that.
Our family has never had big fights over the years, and we have always had warm relations.
It has been twenty-five years since our children were born and moved away, leaving us alone in this world for the first time.
The situation seemed to be fine, but for some reason, my husband was always late for work. I had the feeling that he was distant from me. There was a feeling of anxiety in the middle. I didn’t understand why he was so late.
The truth was revealed much later. Despite my reluctance to believe it, mutual acquaintances repeatedly told me that they had seen Sam with some woman, despite my reluctance to accept it.
This shocked me to my core.
I decided to talk to my husband and asked him if he could explain to me that these are evil tongues that want to prevent them from getting along. Three days later, Sam returned home from work, and I finally discovered what had happened. Although unsure what to do, I feared losing my loved one. Upon her request, I promised to forget all that had happened as a terrible dream. I also said I would forgive and not hold a grudge against him, but he remained silent.
I hope he will consider what I have to say, but unfortunately, he already knows what to do. He calmly collected his belongings and left the house.
There was a sudden change in my world.
Almost a year later, he said something else again, but I couldn’t hear him. I crossed out all 25 years of a happy marriage. When I gave him all of myself, he gave me this. It felt like a disturbing dream, and I didn’t want anyone to go through that. I didn’t communicate with anyone for a year. Only children who supported me visited me. I didn’t want to live in that situation.
At that moment, I seemed to come alive. One day, I sat down and said, “Enough!”
Then I came to my senses. I knew from rumors that Sam lived with this woman. However, I tried not to inquire further about the matter because I lived for myself and my children and could not handle this topic.
Then one ordinary day, I heard a knock at the door. I thought it was one of the children who had come to visit. But no, I opened the door and was shocked to find Sam! With a bunch of flowers in his hand.
It was at that moment that I did not understand anything at all.
It took him a long time to apologize to me. He cried with tears, admitted he had made a mistake, asked for it back, and I stood there unable to speak. This is because I had already forgiven him. However, I didn’t expect him to return, and I resigned to being left alone in my old age.
My children were also shocked when I told them about what their father had just done. However, they didn’t get into our relationship at all. Therefore, my kids cheered for me because they saw a smile on my face that hadn’t been there for a long time. They were happy for me.
I had no idea this would be possible for us, but I believe everything in this life is not given to us just like that. I am confident we passed this test. Today marks three years since we started living together again. I would never have imagined this could happen to us. But I believe everything in this life is not given to us just like that.
