Fun fact: after my divorce was finalised, my ex-wife made a point of telling me that she never loved me.
It’s a sad tale whichever way you look at it, but I take solace in the fact that I was serenely clueless about the depth of her loathing. It must have made things even more intolerable for her, so I can’t help but admire her ability to wait for over a decade before sticking the knife in. That shows serious commitment. Or psychosis. Possibly both.
Of course, if she’d really wanted to make me miserable, she wouldn’t have signed the divorce papers, would she? It’s a bit of a mixed message.
