My partner IS my heart.
I can love him and have a good life with some of my own choices thrown in.
I made the choice to be a wife and mother. Yes, there are sacrifices, and some people want a different life than that, and I respect that. But, I'm happy with my life. I didn't marry My Man with the thoughts that I could "change him" nor have I ever done anything I didn't want
to do, because of him (I mean, aside from housework and dishes and the laundry and stuff that has
to be done, no matter who you live with).
I did give up Medical School to be with him and have children with him. It was a good trade off.
If he were a hurtful or abusive man, that would be different. But, he isn't and we both
have made sacrifices to be together. He was ready to join the Merchant Marine when I met him. Either that or move to Alaska and work in forestry or oil engineering. He put that aside for me, so we've both had to mix our lives together to love each other.
