Ron and I had been married almost eight years when the problems started. Well, I take that back, the problems probably stemmed from things that happened long before that. There was nothing big that spurred these problems at first, but once the problems started rear their ugly heads it was a quick downward spiral.
Ron and I were hopelessly in love when we got married. Some might even go as far as to say we were blindly in love. When you begin to date someone most people imagine how happy the rest of their lives will be with that other person. I am a hopeless romantic, and perhaps that was Ron at first as well.
