The article, How parents, kids can survive divorce, by Marie Virata Halloran states,

“Jocelyn and Joel dated since high school. After college graduation, they got married. They have four good-looking children. Jocelyn’s friends commented how privileged she is to have a dedicated and hardworking husband.

The night after celebrating their 21st wedding anniversary, Joel handed a card to his wife. It said, “Jocelyn, this is very difficult for me to let you know about the struggles I have with our relationship. We have grown apart. I am very sorry, but I can no longer pretend. I want a divorce.”

The last four words left Jocelyn in deep turmoil, let down and under attack without warning.

After a few moments of silence, she replied, “I had no idea that our marriage was collapsing. I thought all these years we were really meant for each other.”

Joel responded, “I packed all my personal belongings. Do not worry about the children. I spoke to them already. The two older ones are fine. Justin is the only one that I am deeply worried about. He kept weeping when I told him. My lawyer will contact you for the details of our divorce. I prepaid all legal fees, will pay child support for Justin, and will try to assist our son’s college tuition. I will pay for the house mortgage. You can have the house. You have been an admirable wife, Jocelyn. It is me and not you to be blamed for our relationship going off track. I am so sorry.”
