Another separation/divorce. A long time friend of mine. Married for a long time, 3 children (5yo boy; 2yo girl; >1yo girl).
Couples separating is always disheartening. But I think what's particularly disheartening, to me in this case, is that I remember talking to him about relationships/marriage. I discovered that he was about the only other person I knew who believed that marriage is a bond that goes beyond our mortal and material existence... ie. it does NOT end at death.
I hate this world.
