I got home that night as my Wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, got something to tell you. She sat down ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in Eyes. Suddenly I didn’t know how to open My mouth.
But I had to let her know what i was thinking.
‘I want a divorce’ I raised topic calmly.
She didn’t seem to be annoyed by what i said, instead she asked me softly, why? I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shout at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn’t talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew
She wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her
satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn’t love her anymore. I pitied her!
With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted
A divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% Of my company. She glanced at it and tore it into pieces. The woman who Spent ten years of her life with me Became a stranger. I felt sorry for wasted time, resources and energy but Could not take back what I had said for i loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loud in front of me, which was what I Expected to see. To me her cry was act and kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seem to be firmer and clearer now.
The next day, I came back home very tired and found her writing something at table. I didn’t have dinner but went straight To sleep and fell asleep very fast because i was tired after an eventful day with Jane.
When I woke up, she was still there at table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.
In the morning she presented her divorce conditions. She didn’t want anything from me, but needed a month’s notice before
divorce. She requested that in that
month, we both try to live as normal a life as possible. Her reason for this conditions was simple. Our son had his exams in a month time and she didn’t want to disrupt him by our broken marriage.
This was agreeable to me. But she
Said something more, she asked me to recall I had carried her into our bridal room on Wedding day. She requested that everytime For the month’s duration I carry her out to our bedroom to the front door every morning I thought she was going crazy. Just to me our last days together are bearable and near, I accepted her odd request.
I told Jane about my wife’s divorce
conditions. She laughed loudly and thought that was absurd. No matter what tricks applies, she has to face the divorce, she scornfully.
My wife and I hadn’t had anybody convinced since my divorce intention was expressed. So when I carried her out on first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy
in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room then to the door, I walked over ten times with her in my arms. She closed her eyes
said softly; don’t tell our son about
divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside the door. She wen Wait for the bus to work. I drove alone the office.
On the second day, both of us acted
more easily. She leaned on my chest. I can smell the fragrance of her blouse. I really thought that i hadn’t looked at this woman care
for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on face, her hair was graying! Our marriage Taken its toll on her. For a minute I wonder what I had done to her.
On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I had a sense of intimacy returning. This was Woman who had given ten years of her to me. On the fifth and sixth day, I really thought that our sense of intimacy was growing again.
I didn’t tell Jane about this. It because its easier to carry her as the month slipped Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.
She was choosing what to wear one morning She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly
realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her easily. Suddenly it hit me. She had buried much pain and bitterness in her head Subconsciously I reached out and touch her head.
Our son came in at the moment and
Dad, it’s time to carry mom out. To
seeing his father carrying his mother out become an essential part of his life. My Gestured to our son to come closer hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last-minute. I then held her in
arms, walking from the bedroom, through sitting
room, to the hallway. Her head surrounded my neck softly and naturally held her body tightly, it was just like Wedding day.
But her much lighter weight made me sad the Last day, when I held her in my arm i could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said,
‘I had noticed that our life lacked intimacy’. I dressed To office and jumped out of the car sweating
Without locking the door. I was afraid the delay would make me change my mind, i walked upstairs. Jane opened the door i said to her, sorry, Jane, I do not want divorce anymore.
She looked at me, astonished, and touched my forehead. Do you have a feeling for m? She said. I moved her hand off my head, Sorry, Jane, I said, I won’t divorce.
marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn’t value the details of our lives Not because we didn’t love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I was supposed to hold her until death do us apart.
Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downs and drove away. At the floral shop on my way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The sales girl asked me what to write On the card. I smiled and wrote, “I’ll carry her
out every morning until death do us apart”
That evening I arrived home, flowers in hands,with a smile on my face, I run up stairs only to find my wife in the bed – dead.
My wife had been fighting cancer for more than a month and I was so busy with Jane to even notice, She knew that she would die soon and
wanted to save me from the negative reaction from our son, in case i push through with the divorce. At least The eyes of our son— I’m a loving husband
