“When you get married, it’s because you think you are going to be best friends forever.

You are already best friends – so you think that you will want to hang out, live together and share things forever.

Well, you know how in school, some people stop being best friends?

Sometimes they grow apart, or find a new best friend, or are fighting all of the time and realize they aren’t the best friends they used to be…

The same thing happens to grown ups.

We were best friends.

But now we don’t get along anymore…we are happier when we aren’t hanging out together.  We didn’t think it would happen, but it did.

It has nothing to do with you, or anything you did.  We both still love you.

We tried, but we weren’t meant to be best friends forever.

Luckily, we had you….which was the best thing we ever did.”
