Just because two people are civil and honorable doesn’t mean they have what it takes to develop and form and maintain the “invisible” third person/child/entity which is called a relationship (or marriage since marriage is just certification of a relationship).

One food for thought for others is sometimes the best thing you can do for a really good partner who deserves more and better is to call it quits. That is love, that person should never be with someone inferior to them (or vice versa), nor should a person stay because of expectations.

People need to realize you are either a person that can be all-in and be a partner for another, or else realize that one can not and move on and learn and grow until one either becomes able too … or dies they way they desire.

Be well.
