Before life with Greg, I had other friends, my own car, my own dwelling and my own life. I have none of those things now. I was happier when I did. Isn’t that crazy? Get married and commit to a life that isn’t yours… I feel like writing an informational pamphlet to be distributed to high school girls: Things They Don’t Tell You About Marriage. #1 Getting Married Means You Die.

…I just want to cry continuously. I don’t tell him I love him on the phone anymore. I don’t think he’s even noticed. He has this fake idea of who I am- a completely different person- and that’s who he talks to. That’s who he thinks he’s married to. This person loves sex, wants to have his children and does whatever he wants. I hate this person.
