Place        : Ausin TX USA



When Robin got home that night as his wife Linda served dinner, Robin held her hand 

and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again Robin 

observed the hurt in her eyes.

Suddenly Robin didn’t know how to open his mouth. But he had to let her know what 

he was thinking. 

I want a Divorce. Robin raised the topic calmly. Linda didn’t seem to be annoyed by 

his words, instead she asked me softly, Why ?

Robin  avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and 

shouted at me, you are not a Man! That night, we didn’t talk to each other. She was 

weeping. Robin knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. 

Linda was weeping. Robin knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our 

marriage. But Robin could hardly give Linda Rob  a satisfactory answer; she had 

lost my heart to Jane. Robin dindn’t love Linda Rob  anymore. 

Robin just pintined Linda Rob !


With a deep sense of guilt, Robin  drafted a Divorce  Agreement which stated that Linda  could own our House, Our Cars, Our Scooty and 50% Stake of my Company. Linda 

glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with Robin  had become a stranger. Robin  felt sorry for Linda wasted Time, Resources and Energy but He could not take back what he had said for I loved Jane so dearly. 

Finally Linda cried loudly in front of Robin , which was what Robin  had expected to see. To Robin  her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of Divorce which had obsessed Robin  for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

The next day, Robin  came back home very late and found Linda writing something at the table. Robin  didn’t have Dinner but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because Robin  was tired after an eventful Day with Jane. 

When Robin  woke up, she was still there at the table writing. Robin  just did not care so Robin  turned over and was asleep again.

In the morning Linda presented her Divorce Conditions : Linda didn’t want anything 

from me, but needed a month’s notice before the Divorce. She requested that in that 
one month we both struggle to live as Normal a Life as Possible. Her reasons were simple : Our son Mike had his exams in a month’s time and she didn’t want to disrupt him with our Broken Marriage.

This was agreeable to Robin.  But she had something more, she asked Robin  to 

recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our Wedding Day. She requested 

that every day for the month’s duration I carry her out of our Bedroom to the front 

door ever morning. Robin  thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days 

together bearable Robin  accepted her odd request.

Robin  told Jane about Linda’s Divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought 

it was absurd. No matter what tricks Linda applies, she has to face the Divorce, 
Jane said scornfully.

My wife Linda and Robin  hadn’t had any body contact since Robin's  divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when Robin  carried her out on the first day, they both appeared clumsy. Their Son Mike clapped behind them, Daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought Robin  a sense of pain. 

From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, Robin  walked over ten meters with Linda in his arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; Please don’t tell our son Mike about the Divorce. 

Robin  nodded, feeling somewhat upset. 

Robin  put her down outside the door. 

Linda went to wait for the bus to work. 

Robin  drove alone to the office.

On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on Robin  chest. 

Robin  could smell the Old fragrance of her Blouse. 

Robin  realized that Robin  hadn’t looked at this woman carefully for a long time. 
Robin  realized she was not Young any more. 

There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. 

For a minute Robin  wondered what I had done to her.

On the fourth day, 

when Robin  lifted her up, Robin  felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me. 

On the Fifth and Sixth Day, 

Robin  realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. Robin  didn’t tell 

Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.

Linda was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. 

Robin  suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why Robin  could carry her more easily.

Suddenly it hit me… she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. 

Subconsciously Robin  reached out and touched her head.

Son Mike came in at the moment and said, Dad, it’s time to carry Mom out. 

To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. Robin's  wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged Mike tightly.

Robin  turned his face away because he was afraid he might change my mind at this last minute. Robin  then held her in his arms, walking from the bedroom, through 

the sitting room, to the hallway. 

Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was 
just like our wedding day.

But her much lighter weight made me sad. 

On the last day, when Robin  held her in his arms he could hardly move a step. 

Son Mike had gone to school. 

Robin  held her tightly and said, I hadn’t noticed that our life lacked intimacy. 

Robin  drove to Office…. jumped out of the Car swiftly without locking the door. 

Robin  was afraid any delay would make me change my mind…

Robin  walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and Robin  said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the Divorce anymore.

She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. 

Do you have a fever?

She said. 

I moved her hand off my head. 

Sorry, Jane, Robin  said, I won’t divorce. 

My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn’t value the details of 

our lives, not because we didn’t love each other anymore. 

Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am 

supposed to hold her until death do us apart. 

Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. 

She gave Robin a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. 

Robin walked downstairs and drove away. At the floral shop on the way, 

He ordered a bouquet of flowers for his wife. 


That evening Robin  Arrived Home, 

Flowers in his hands, a Smile on his Face, 

At least, in the eyes of our son—- 

I’m a loving Husband and Dad ….
