Going Home To Mama

I was engaged to be married. We had picked out the date, the colors, and the place. We told all of our family members and friends. One day he came home from work and said he didn't want to be with me anymore. He was leaving and going back to stay with his mother. We had bought a house together and both lived there, even though it was only in my name. Despite the fact that he had five kids to four different mothers, I still loved him. He told me I had done nothing wrong and that I was a perfect woman. Three months later he started to date my ex-coworker, and now they live together.
