prologue. My marriage had been dead for years. My wife, Ruth, agreed. She and I were living like distant strangers, but neither of us was ready to pull the plug. We have been married for 14 years and have been together for close to 19 years. As a boy that always dreamed about venturing too far off destinations around the world, there wasn't a place that didn't peak. My curiosity. I hungered for it all. Now, with a thriving business, I was able to live out. That dream route was all for it. She was open to going to his many far away locations as possible. We had traveled all over the world together. That was something that was important to me. And I have made sure before we were married that she was prepared to go along for the ride and as it happened, she waas. We were great traveling companions whenever we were away on vacation. Things were good between us since we were well suited for each other while we were on one trip, we were always planning for the next. That was how it waas. We share the love of travel and adventure. Ruth once said to me, Bo. I've always wanted to see Monte Carlo. It would be so luxurious. You and me and all the rich and famous. As she spoke, she took me by the hand and squeezed with all her might. To say that she was enthusiastic might be an understatement. Honey, I think Bora Bora would be absolutely luscious. I can feel the sun on my skin. She touched her fingers to her cheeks and blushed. Picture those beautiful huts on the crystal clear water. When shall we leave? Without all the traveling and new discoveries? I don't think our marriage would have survived as long as it did. It was only when we returned home things went bad. Then reality set in. Ruth and I both loved adventure, but not always the same kind. She liked to take extreme risks, such as hiking up tall mountains with sheer cliffs and a narrow trails with 2000 foot drops, not to mention wild animals roaming the area. We had no clue what was around every turn. The same mystery awaited us during our marriage. The journey that loomed before us was enough to break anyone spirit for me. It made me question my lack of judgment. Had I known what was to be, I might not have walked the path I chose. Instead, whatever instincts of red flags that hovered over me, I pushed away. If I had paid attention, I should have run as far as I could travelled alone towards my childhood dream. In retrospect, it may have saved me a heck of a lot of pain and worthless suffering.
