When change is inevitable

I read a short story this morning. It was for my English course, thus making it a mandatory read. The title I the short story is “shiloh”. In brief, a man gets into an accident in his big rig and is out of work due to the injury he suffered. His white is now faced with having him home and in her face on a daily basis. She eventually starts to fill her day up with things so that, in my opinion, she doesn’t have to have the constant face time. Her mother is also constantly around which is noticeably overwhelming to her. The husband is doing everything in his power to reconnect with his wife yet she is fighting all of his attempts. The mother finally convinces the two to take a day trip to shiloh to experience the battlegrounds and possibly this will allow them to find each other again. They go on a Sunday and during their picnic she, without even so much as a glance in his direction, tells him she wants to leave him. You can see that this ending was inevitable and it sends a chill through my back.

I was once a married woman. My husband was in the service and was gone quite often. We had out children, which was my sole focus and somehow lost the connection that we had once had. When he had left the military for medical reasons we were faced with this same problem. We had been great friends but had lacked the intimacy that we once had. Our story ended in divorce as well.

It’s hard to maintain relationships when you have your partner around often and even harder to regain a connection once it has been broken.
