I used to be married and on the outside it looked like an ordinary, perhaps even a happy marriage. I am now negotiating a divorce, and have been for the past 2+ years. After I filed for divorce, my husband assaulted me and shortly thereafter came under investigation for child pornography.

This post, written in the before but only recently published, shows my discomfort and fear in that marriage. The moment this post chronicles is the moment of my awakening. It may be my favorite post ever, because it's one of the purist things I ever wrote.
