How nice to read one of your stories again!

My first wife and I divorced in 1990. We had no kids and I moved to another city. The divorce was fairly acrimonious and there was no reason for us to keep in touch, so we didn't. I would, from time to time, google her, just to see what she was up to. In the fall of 2005, I received a very brief email message from her sister, informing me that she had died suddenly about two months previously.

When we married I assumed, of course, that we'd be together forever. Life (and death) takes strange turns.

It could be worse, I guess. What if they'd been living together and she didn't know if he was alive or dead? I've met a few couples like that.

Oh, FGL, where are you? I don't think I'm the only one missing your unique viewpoint on Libraryland.


Yes, indeed, FGL, where are you? Hope all is well and the only reason you're not blogging is because you're so busy.


Please come back again FGL.. we miss you! Kay (New Zealand)

Perhaps the estranged husband left her with a home she is now looking to sell, or she is remarrying and needs a divorce, or is seeking to collect on a life insurance policy or unclaimed property. Maybe she even wants a tax break. That situation doesn't seem that odd to me, as people move on. Maybe they didn't get along and didn't get to know each other well enough before marriage. I definitely have ex-boyfriends whom I'm unsure of whether they're alive or not, the only difference is she made the mistake of marrying one of them.
