We only have one life to live


By

I’m a 50-plus single mother of six, and have been separated now for almost four years. I’m partly to blame for the breakup of my 20-plus-year marriage, but it is nothing compared to the possessiveness and jealousies of my husband. My contribution to the never-ending trust issues was being silent.
