She was smitten with him

He was attractive and funny

She wanted to be with him forever

*

He was taken by her beauty

She was kind and intelligent

He would spend his life with her

*

She did the best she could

Trying to please him

Seeming to fail at ever turn

*

He provided for her

Gave her his money

He was always working

*

She felt trapped

Never saw him

Needed his touch

*

He felt used

Never saw her

Needed her support

**

They filed for divorce

Not being able to get along anymore

Said it was irreconcilable differences
