A view from my side.
The second wife was the roller coaster. She was supposed to be “the one.” We dated for years, got married, had kids…life was great. Then the bottom fell out and disaster struck. The source of many of my greatest moments in life as well as most of the worst, she still figures in any major decision I make. We have always gotten along well enough, sometimes better than others, but I can truly say I have never, ever, hated or despised or regretted my involvement with her. Life with her was always an adventure and the peaks were glorious while the valleys were horrendous.
