I was married to Steven in 1978 for approximately 9 months. I was 18. He was 30.
I never saw anyone try so hard to do the ‘right’ thing: to be a devoted son, have a job, help the community (he was a VERY devoted volunteer fireman) and get married. Steven wanted to please, and did not like to say no.
He should have. He should have said no to a marriage that never gelled, he should have said “I love you, but no”, to people in his family who never gave him a chance to take flight on his own power, he should have said no to an occasional signal from the firehouse when his new bride needed his love and company. I spoke to Steven on his last birthday, and when we disconnected I had an idea that was the last time.
Thank you for the honeymoon in Bermuda
