Some time ago it occurred to me that many women were doing fine being single after mid-life divorces. I realized that the greatest challenge to my marriage was not another man, but no man at all! What I need to do is make sure that, as a marriage partner, I am better than “nothing”. Be easier to live with than “no-one.” Don’t be more of a pain that a non-existent person. I think I can do that! Hooray!
