Here was my husband, knowing what we know, saying, "Screw the worst. I'm here to love you forever." And I cried because it was from my parents that we were learning that kind of love. It's a heartbreaking lesson. And a beautiful one.

Michelle Rose Gilman

What changed in me was the realization that I was committing to a process of being with another person. There is a difference. I came to peace with the fact that I was not committing to being the same person for the rest of my life; that person he initially fell in love with. I am too old to believe that.
