"Thank you for the replies. I have seen the demise of my marriage coming for a while. I will never fit the mold of someone raised in a TBM family. I was so naive in not doing my homework in the beginning. I never expected to be a single mom but…"
"Wow. That's really tough. I guess you are seeing a side of your husband that's coming completely from out of left field. Somewhere within himself, he must be longing to re-join the flock and return to TBM ways. It…"
