Several months ago, I came across this beautiful story through my Facebook news feed and I had stored it in my collections for future reference. Going through my Evernote today, I decided to share this with you here. I am not sure about the origin of this story or the author. But the story is very powerful and touching. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.
When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, “I’ve got something to tell you.”
She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.
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 the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, “Why?”
