So this is how it ends?

Last night I got a really odd e-mail. It was a link to a craigslist personal ad, and when I opened it, it was quite pornographic. Some guy looking for a sex buddy, with a photo of his erect penis. It didn't take me too long to figure out who sent this. The e-mail was addressed to myself and some other ladies, along with a woman I went to college with. She is in the midst of a nasty divorce and I am 99% sure that that is her ex-husband.

 

It's just so sad and pathetic. 10 years of marriage, and now he's sending pornographic photos and personal ads to his ex-wife's college friends? It just makes me sad, people get married with such high hopes, and this is how it ends?

That's so depressing.

Angry divorces are the saddest thing. When people want revenge because of a breakup, it spirals into a childish disaster.

 

I guess in many senses you could consider it a blessing, that you got to see someone's capabilities and true nature beneath the inherent veneer that we all viscerally create in some senses in relationships. Everyone hurts, everyone suffers and cycles through the stages of grief, but what methods they use to deal with such is very telling of their characater. When it's all gone, nothing left to prove to or show someone, when there's nothing left to gain from a relationship with them, no more symbiotic exchange in this way, that's when you see who someone really is.

 

Sort of like showing your hand after the last card is dealt. You see who had the good hand and who was bluffing...

Life isn't our ideals, and it isn't like anything we imagine it to be like.

the good news is that my friend seems to be handling things really well. she seems like she has really moved on, and is more "rolling her eyes" at this behavior rather than getting really upset over it. I am glad she is doing so well. Back in college, it seemed like their marriage was really good. stories like these make marriage sound really scary.

It's kind of sad if your friend's ex felt he needed to disrespect himself in this way. After all, doesn't sending out a pic like that to all her friends just reinforce to everyone why she should be divorcing him?

 

Sometimes people's logic just astounds me.
