Over 30 yrs. ago, I ran away from my hometown to escape abuse. I also ran away from the love of my life. We had been friends since we were in kindergarten. We began dating in junior high school and new we wanted to be together forever. We had been through everything together and he stood by me and supported me through all the abuse I suffered. When I finally moved back to the states, I was informed that he had gotten married and moved on. I was happy for him though I knew my heart still belonged to him. Finally I married and started my own family and we recently moved back to my hometown. The first person I ran into was him. My heart pounded and the smile on his face and the light in his eyes told me everything I needed to know. He was still deeply in love with me. We had coffee together and caught up on each others lives. He looked for me for years and never stopped loving me. He divorced his wife because he couldn't commit to her wholeheartedly. His heart and soul was still with me. He stressed how he prayed everyday and night that God would bring me back to him. I prayed for the same thing but was afraid to face my past. I am very much a stronger woman now and all those fears are behind me. I am not happy with my husband and he knows that I have never given myself to him completely. But I've been married to this man for over 20 yrs and we have a family. My heart wants my soul mate back. But my mind is confused as to what to do. Do I choose true love and complete happiness or do I stay in a marriage full of unhappiness and regret to appease my family?Answer Question

If you woke up everyday and felt that your life is unfulfilled before you reconnected, then look into your true over all happiness. But if you decided on a divorce be prepared for the worst because now there is "another man" and everyone will know it. Can you risk the alienation that may or may not happen? Twenty years is a lifetime of relationships! Remember, you cannot unring a bell.
