I have a close friend. He's 44. His wife is 30. She was a SAHM, and got a job at Toys R Us. Make a long story short, she left him for this guy at work.
Brief history. They always seemed happy. He too, is a kick boxing champ, with a gold belt to prove it. He was highly ranked, and easily could have mangled the guy that stole his wife. Instead, he chose to let her go.
My friend is a very handsome guy, and he's built like most men wish they were, yet she strayed.
And YES, he was devastated by this.
Ahead one year later, she shows up at his door, crying. She wanted to know WHY he never pursued her. Wanted to know why he gave up so quick.
She said if he chased her, she would have come back.
He politely walked her back to her car, and dismissed her.
