Anyway, I actually bought one of these magazines and read the article. The author only quoted "sources" and "insiders." No names. I figured it was a tabloid fiction.
I admit I felt smug, though. What's the matter with these people? I've been married over 50 years and nary a rumor of divorce.
Then I remembered the night (about two months into my marriage to Tom) when I got out of bed at two in the morning, because of some imagined slight, and left the apartment and the sleeping Tom to sit in our red VW and plan my marital escape. I would drive to Victoria, Canada, which I had recently seen for the first time, and make a new life there.
Only I didn't know how to get there, and I didn't have a map, and I've never been good at planning anything--so I just sat there and bawled.
What if there had been paparazzi following me out to the student housing parking lot and taken snapshots of me howling in my car? Imagine what the Salt Lake Tribune could have done with that?
Has your marriage been paparazzi-proof?
