I had real love when I was 20.
We both messed up, multiple times, and ended the relationship.
We still both know, almost ten years later, that we are soul mates.
However, he is a sex offender and I have children.
He would never hurt children, his charges are crap, but still, I am not willing to give my children to my ex-husband, as would happen if this man and I were to get together.
I am married, and I do love my husband, but I honestly don't feel that we are meant to be.
I will stay with my husband, until one of us is dead, I know he loves me and feels that I am his soul mate, but I just can't return that feeling.
So, for now, and maybe forever, I choose not to have my true love. My kids are just more important, and I won't break a second set of wedding vows.
