I grieve for the loss of the marriage I hoped we'd one day have, the old age I dreamed of us sharing, the joint chatter about children and family life, the knowledge that someone I loved was with me.
I don't miss the other stuff. Sometimes I feel like my dh is two people, I love one very very much and just long and wish that the other didn't exist. I guess to come to terms with this I have to come to terms with thw fact that they are one and I can't (at the moment) have one without the other. That makes me feel incredibly sad.
