I got home from work one night and as my wife Elizabeth, served dinner I held her hand and said. ‘’ I want a divorce ‘’.
She didn’t seem annoyed by my words. Instead, she softly asked me, ‘’ Why ‘’?
I avoided the question, and this made her upset.
So I admitted that I was having an affair with a woman named Breanna at work and I was no longer in love with her.
The next day, with a deep sense of guilt. I drafted a divorce stating that she could keep the house, the car, and 30 percent of my company.
She glanced at it and tore it to pieces.
The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger.
I felt so sorry for her wasted time, resources, and energy, but I could not take back what I had done.
She finally cried loudly in front of me.
‘’ We took vows to each other ‘’
She was heartbroken, which is what I expected to see, and the idea of divorce felt more real now.
I got home very late the next day. I had spent some time with Breanna.
I opened the door to see Elizabeth writing something at the table she presented her divorce conditions: she didn’t want anything from me, but requested that for the next 30 days we both live our lives as normal as possible.
Her reasons were simple: our son had exams in a month, and she didn’t want to disrupt him with a broken marriage.
She also asked me to recall how I carried her on our wedding day, and requested that I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door every morning for the month,s duration.
I thought she was going, crazy but to make our last days together bearable, I accepted her odd request.
We were both clumsy about it when I carried her out on the first day. Our son was joyfully, clapping his hands behind us, singing, ” Daddy is holding mommy in his arms ‘’. His words triggered a sense of pain in me.
I carried her from the bedroom to the living room to the front door.
She closed her eyes and softly said,
’’ Don’t tell our son about the divorce’’
I nodded and put her down outside the door.
We weren’t as clumsy on the second day.
She leaned her head on my chest, and I could smell the fragrance on her shirt.
I realized that I hadn’t looked at this woman in a really long time.
There were fine wrinkles on her face, and her hair was graying!
Our marriage had taken its toll on her.
For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.
On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I found a sense of intimacy returning.
This was the woman who had given me ten years of her life to me.
On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again.
It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by, I suddenly realized that she was getting very thin.
One morning it hit me how she was burying so much pain and bitterness in her heart, and without thinking about it, I reached out and touched her head.
Our son had came in at that moment and said, ”Dad, it’s time to carry mommy out !’’
To him seeing his father carry his mother out had become apart of every morning.
My wife gestured toward our son to come closer, and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind.
I carried her in my arms, and her hand naturally wrapped around my neck. I held her body tightly just like on our wedding day.
On the last day, when I held her in my arms, I could hardly move a step.
I knew what I had to do . I drove to Breanna,s place, walked upstairs and said, ”I’m sorry Breanna, but I do not want to divorce my wife anymore’’
It had become very clear to me I had carried my wife to our home on our wedding day, and I am to hold her ‘’ Until death do us part ‘’
I came home, flowers in my hands a big smile on my face.
But my wife was dead.
It turns out that she,d been fighting cancer for a few months now, but I was so busy with Breanna to even notice.
She knew that she would die soon, that’s why her final request was so important for her.
She wanted our son to see I was a loving husband and that we were together until.
‘’ Death do us part ‘’
Marriage is sacred.
It’s about finding your best friend and loving them unconditionally until your last breath.
