The other day I called up an old musician friend of mine I hadn’t seen in about five years. He asked how I was doing and how my wife was doing. When I told him I was divorced, he sounded shocked and equally embarrassed. I reassured him I was doing fine, and the break up was really the best thing for both of us.
He inquired more about what led to our break up and what measures we took to try to salvage our marriage. After answering his questions, he admitted the reason for his interest in my situation was that he himself was contemplating divorce.
