Single or married, all of you should read this heartbreaking story:
When this man got home that night and set at the table where his wife served the dinner, he grab her hand and said: “I have something to tell you”. The woman sat down and started to eat the dinner quietly. The man saw the pain in her eyes. Suddenly he could not open his mouth, but he still had to tell her what he was thinking: “I want a divorce”. The woman did not seem upset by her husband’s words and asked: “Why? You’re not a man?”
When she got to bed she did not fell asleep and she cried all night. It seemed that his wife knew that was happening.
There was something about their marriage, but he could not explain what was exactly. There was another woman named Joan. This man was no longer in love with his wife and he only pitied her. The man felt guilty and he wrote a divorce agreement and the wife got the house, the car and 30% of their business. When the woman saw the agreement she threw it away. Even though they spent 10 years of their lives together and they were like strangers. He felt guilty but he could not help himself as he was in love in Joan. All of a sudden, his wife started screaming and at that moment the idea of divorce became much clearer to him.
The next day after he came home he saw he wife sitting on the table and writing something. He skipped the diner and went to bed as he was tired of the day spend with Joan. When we woke up in the morning he saw that his wife is still sitting on the table and writing. Then, she introduced him to divorce conditions: She did not want anything from me, but needed one month’s notice before the divorce.
Her condition was to live as if nothing happened. She explained that the reason for that is the fact that their son had month of tests and she did not want to bother him with their broken marriage and divorce. The husband agreed, and then she said that she has another request: to carry her to their bedroom in the same way at the day they got married. The husband thought that she is going crazy, but still accepted.
Since he expressed the intention to divorce, they did not have any physical contact and the first day when he took her to the front door, they both felt quite uncomfortable. Their son walked behind them and he was clapping and saying: “Dad carries mom is his arms”. His words gave his father a lot of pain.
The husband walked the 10 meters with his wife in his arms and then he went to work. The second day, they both were more relaxed and felt less discomfort.
The wife leaned against her husband’s chest and he felt the fragrance of her blouse. He realized that there have been a while when he last time looked at her carefully. His wife was not young anymore, and she had wrinkles, gray hairs which were notable a damage of the marriage. The fourth day the husband felt that there is some affection returning between them. During the fifth and sixth day they continued with the routine and he did not tell anything to Joan.
The husband noticed that every day it was easier to carry his wife and month was running. He thought that he was getting used to her weight. One morning, she was looking for what to wear and she has tried all dresses but all were too big. At that moment he realized tat she was very thin and that is the reason why he did not feel her weight. He realized that he had provoked too much pain and bitterness to his wife.
Their son entered into the room and said that it was time to go downstairs. For him, the picture when his father is carrying his mother to the door had become an essential part of his life. While they were hugging, the father started changing his decision about the divorce.
While he was holding his wife in his arms he felt like on the first day of their wedding. Suddenly she stroked his neck soft and naturally. He held her strong, just like on their wedding night. When he hugged her she noticed that she is too thin that that made him very sad. The husband realized that he made a mistake and immediately went to Joan and said that he is sorry and that he is not going to divorce.
Joan looked at his and asked if he has fever. He said: “My wife and I love each other, it was that we were doing everything as a routine and boring. We did not value the details of our life since I started carrying her to the room.”
He left the building, entered into the car and went to the florist. He bought flowers for his wife. The girl in the florist asked what to write on the card? He said: “I will carry you every morning until death parts us”. He arrived at his home with flowers and a smile on his face, went to their bedroom and found his dead wife.
Later he found out that his wife was battling cancer, but he was too busy with Joan, so he actually did not realize that. His wife was aware of the fact that she was dying. She simply did not want their son to have bad memories of their divorce. At his son’s eyes, he was great husband who loved his wife.
