Not Your Everyday Gray Lady ... Plus New Video Blog Entry

An article in the New York Times (linked by First Things) caught my attention just a minute ago, and it's one of the more incredible testimonials of a marriage on the rocks that I've come across. This one is definitely going in the file:

Sure, you have your marital issues, but on the whole you feel so self-satisfied about how things have worked out that you would never, in your wildest nightmares, think you would hear these words from your husband one fine summer day: “I don’t love you anymore. I’m not sure I ever did. I’m moving out. The kids will understand. They’ll want me to be happy.”

But wait. This isn’t the divorce story you think it is. Neither is it a begging-him-to-stay story. It’s a story about hearing your husband say “I don’t love you anymore” and deciding not to believe him. And what can happen as a result.

Read the rest here.

And it's listed in the "Fashion and Style" section of the paper? Sadly, such perspectives are anything but the rage these days. Would that they were.
