Trust Your Instincts

I was best friends with a guy for a year. After that, we began seriously seeing each other. At the end of the second year, I became pregnant, and we got married. He had serious single withdrawal issues, but blamed it on getting married young at twenty-two. At the end of that third year, I became pregnant again. After the birth of my second child, I found out he had been seeing an older woman the year BEFORE we got married, and he had NEVER stopped! I was suspicious, but since he had other female friends, he said she was just another one and that he would never be feeling a woman thirteen years older than he was. Can you believe I bought that? Always trust your first instinct. I could have avoided a dating disaster and a life disaster!
