Thank you for writing this — it captures so much of what I felt and thought about as I prepared to eventually end my marriage. And it’s so true, there were many other sides to the story but I had to accept that in order to be true to myself and what I need, staying wasn’t really an option. Although, to be quite honest, the pet part is what kills me the most. While that wasn’t a compelling enough reason to stay, I still miss my dog every single day.
