‘occasionally one person wants desperately to continue the relationship when the other is determined to end it. And, every once in a while, that desperate person says, “If you leave me, I’ll kill myself.” ‘
Good stuff ..although I found the author’s comments on marriage/relationships were interesting as well as his description of the runaway husband which was classic : ‘It is often true that someone who leaves a spouse is really leaving other people also and leaving behind also an unpleasant view he has of himself. It is easy to get carried away in the adoration of some new person.’
