I met "Jane" day one, freshmen year of college. All blonde and bows, she bounded down the hall like a Labrador puppy. Soon, we were inseparable. Then Jane met "Eric." A sweet, humble and all-around good guy, Eric was the quintessential boy next door. And, quite literally, he was.
Over time, the three of us have managed to work through the awkwardness and settle in to the reality. Because the reality is that the three of us are bound by marriages past, present, and hopefully future for my ex.
