During college I did a variety of jobs to pay for school. One was a word processing assignment for a divorced man with a family.
Although this project had nothing to do with this fellow's family or marriage, we eventually became friends and I learned that once his children were grown up and on their own, he and his former wife were revisiting their failed marriage.
What they came to understand is that they allowed other "things" to take precedence over their relationship. They had even allowed their children to have a higher priority than their relationship.
As it turned out, just before they were to finalize their plans to remarry, she died from an aggressive form of cancer. He went on to live many years without her but always longed for them to be together…
