A friend of mine dated a woman in another state years before I knew him. He used to tell us stories of how crazy he was, and how he always felt a little guilty for breaking up w/her when she was going through a bad time. He eventually got married, had a couple kids, and ultimately ended up getting divorced.
A few month after, he told a couple of us that he had gone back to Kansas to see the old girlfriend and they were now engaged. I said, "Man, are you sure? This is awfully quick." Our other buddy said, "Dude, no. Don't do it. I know we screw around and give you sh!t a lot, but this is 100% serious. Don't do this. You're on the rebound and you feel guilty about her. Wait six months and really think about it."
He didn't. Paid to move her and her two daughters here.
It lasted maybe two years. She was still kind of goofy in the head, the kids walked all over her, and she was jealous with a capital FREAKING JEALOUS. He told me one time at the mall, the daughters wanted to go to Victoria's Secret, so he and the wife waited outside. He had to look at the ground because she didn't want him looking at the girls who were going to the store. Another time he said something to her about being too jealous and said, "I feel like if I pass a woman on my floor at work, I can't say hi because you'll get upset." She said, "Who is this woman? Do you have a thing for her?" That kind of crazy. And they ended up divorced.
About four or five years ago, he remarried her. I said, "Dude, if you're happy, I'm happy for you, but are you sure? I mean, really sure? Because I remember how she treated you before." They're still married, but the few times I've seen them out, if she wants to go, he has to go. It's just kind of weird to watch.
