"When is she due?" Mom asked me when I told her Dad was marrying her.
How did Mom know?
Mom had received a phone call from a woman asking for Dad; she answered, "He moved out."
The woman on the other end of the line asked, "Sara?" Seems Dad’s new love had left a trail of destruction behind her; the woman on the other end of the phone had her marriage wrecked by Sara as well.
Laura didn't have two parents. So instead she decided she'd have six abs. It was easy. Five hundred crunches three times a day. She told her mom not to pack lunch, she'd buy it at school; told her not to save any leftovers, she'd eaten dinner at a friend's house. Then the abs left her too - just skin and ribs and fistfulls of hair to keep her company.
It's been ten years since I have seen you, and your facebook message says, "what's up, girl?" Well, obviously something since our only interactions have been liking pictures of each other's kids, the invitation you sent me to your wedding (pass), and the invite to your wife's baby shower (uh, no). You're getting divorced. That sucks, man, but I don't have much else to say to someone who has always been just a fleeting thought. Do I have any single friends?

She leaned way out of her comfort zone to "friend" him on Facebook and then again to accept his frequent texts and phone calls.
Over months, he wooed her with words until she believed he adored her and agreed to meet him for a night of long-awaited passion.
The following day he cooled measurably, and when they returned to their respective home states, he told her that, because she was married, he could not continue the "relationship."
She was devastated and sought…Continue
I had been single again for about a year, divorced for almost three months when I happened to run into an old friend of mine, Ryan. We'd known each other since we were kids, grew up together in the same neighborhood, we'd even slept together before during a period of long separation from my first husband, and I had grown to trust him without the risk of falling in love. So it felt natural to bring him home to my little house after a long day of CNA training, eat take out, visit and get…Continue
From occasional conversations over ten years.He’d got her pregnant at fifteen (she was no shrinking violet and I could well imagine his physical irresistibility).
I fell off a barstool and broke my ass. Busted “cock-six” is how you say it. It would have been one of those great “This is how we met” stories if my future wife had witnessed the whole scene. But it’s 8 years too late and she’s already my ex so now it can be her “This is why I left his broke ass” story. Except what knocked me over was watching all my numbers come up.
