Maybe the guy should just burn his house down while his wife is out, then the book gets destroyed, and nobody can complain.
Nobody can complain especially if he covers his tracks and pretends to make a good faith effort to put the fire out ... by first pissing all over the wannabe Harlequin novel discussing her sordid affair with Ted from accounts receivable.

I can see where he's coming from with the journal. To him, her not wanting to excise the parts where she waxes romantic about another man, and not her husband, is disrespectful of his feelings and her dismissive attitude is that much more disrespectful.
I agree. It's like throwing salt in a wound.

Rather than fighting over getting rid of the journal, I'd just get rid of the wife.

The hotsy-totsy one nighter type remark. If that's not a sign of immaturity, then he's got a serious Madonna-you-know-what complex. Miraculously, he met a woman and child that changed his life and helped him begin to grow up.

Backpedaling so soon?
You clearly stated that the answer amy/abby gave was indeed "perfect"
So, how do you reconcile this contradiction?

Heh. Bored again, huh? No backpedal. The "quit reading" is perfect advice concerning the journal. Me feeling that she should have given ADDITIONAL advice (although I did not exactly say "additional") for marital counselling.

I don't think I'm as bored as you are. I'm not in the mood to dissect a phrase/sentence/thought that is so inconsequential.

1: No, sorry. If she "loves him more than ever" she would be willing to rid this mess. I'm a writer and I disagree with allowing it. A year later and she's still pining for him in writing? Stop.
If she wants to salvage a marriage she fractured, she tosses the pages and puts her hubby's feelings over her inappropriate ones and over some words on a page and works on their future.

2: My daughter.
End of. Probing questions are met with "wow" and a walk away.

I'm sorry , but ***WHAT***? Is this a joke? So this dude, who was in a committed relationship for the last 7 years and is adopting a child he has no legal obligation to raise after her mother died....you see immaturity in him because of the words he used to describe the one night stands he used to have nearly a decade ago? I'm sorry, but with all due respect, that's gotta be the dumbest thing I heard all day. Would he seem more mature if he said 'hot n heavy one nighter'?

Additionally, I feel its offensive to say meeting a woman and child helped him grow up. How do you conclude that he had growing up to do? Because he was single and sexually active? Consider a person, male or female, who is extremely career focused and not interested in having serious relationship with anyone, but also has no desire to be celibate, therefore engages in very short term engagements when the opportunity presents itself. Do you just automatically consider that person immature because they are not paired up with a steady mate? Sorry. More silliness as far as I'm concerned. Having a bf/gf/husband/wife/family is no requirement for maturity.

Yeah, especially when you have to defend that sentence..cherry picking again.
Not a matter of boredom, just a matter of fact.
Again you say perfect, while admitting that nothing is perfect...
Cant you at least try for continencey, if not accuracy?

Yeah, I would, too. But we're not him and can't live his life for him. But he doesn't deserve that level of inconsiderate disrespect and dismissiveness.

Ha, lol. I'd have to quit seminary for law school and that ain't gonna happen. Hubby's an attorney and I was in the legal field for years and have had more than my fill of all of it.

I agree. But it should have happened years ago and not because she's keeping a journal, but because of the content. She was writing for over a year that she still loved the dude?

If she knew he was reading it and kept writing about her love for him, then she was being deliberately hurtful.

If he was sneaking a peak and seeing her private thoughts, then what he found should have told him it was over. She loves another man.

But either way, he stayed with her. And now? 8 years later and he's acting like the issue is the written word. Its not. Throwing the pages away will fix nothing. Whether there is a written record or not, she still did those deeds and had those thoughts.
