I will never forget the conversation I had with a friend years back about her home life. We were both in college at the time (I think, lord that was long ago) and she revealed that her mother found out about her fatherâ€™s sordid affair with this woman. I gasped, clutched my non-existent pearls and held my breath waiting for her to add, â€œSo theyâ€™re getting a divorce.â€ Now you have to understand her parents trump all other parents. They are fun, loving, educated and throw amazing parties I must add. Bonus points??!!
Instead she went on to tell me how her fatherâ€™s reigns since that honest moment in their marriage were pulled tighter. Her mother stepped up her fitness game, started to have more of a life and they have somehow throughout the years remained intact and remarkably in love. Whether he dips out on occasional trysts and adventures to this day is unknown and really none of my business but it wasnâ€™t the story that left a staple in my mind throughout these years it was this statement she quoted to me, â€œcheating is inevitable.â€
