When I met my now-ex-wife, I had 52 tanks with killies, angels, dwarf
cichlids, and plants galore. By the time we got married 18 months later, she had
42 and I had 10. She just kept carrying off my tanks for her own projects.
Two days after we were married, and the tanks re-united, she stopped feeding
them, and told me I should just "take over". On day 7, she announced "You
love those fish more than me." In the middle of our second year, I drained
every tank down to where I could carry it, and tossed everything into a near-by
dumpster, just to get her off my back. Everything. Stands, racks, tanks,
fish, heaters, lights, filters, buckets, and nets. Test kits, Start right,
gravel- you name it. It was gone.
And yes, I am serious. As a heart attack. And yes, she was all those
things, for 11 years, until she finally left me for every drunk in Brevard County,
Florida. Funny how until the day I put that ring through my nose.... I mean-
on her finger, she was the perfect companion. Attentive, sharing,
supportive, kind, and easy-going. I didn't change. I kept buying her more flowers
after we were married than before. More attention, more birthdays remembered,
more tolerance toward her mother- oh, yeah, I guess I did change, but I would
think that was for the better.
