Dearest Sally,

You know I love you. I have loved you since the 10th grade, when we first met. I’ve never felt that way about anyone else… ever! But, I don’t know if that’s enough any more.

Since you’ve been away I’ve had time to think about us… a lot, and where we are headed in the future: whether it’s together or apart. In the past several years, I know we have been just gliding along, living in a kind of, static existence. No highs or lows, just drifting. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I love you, but I’m no longer in love with you. And I know it isn’t just me. I’ve felt the way you have been pulling back, emotionally and physically.

We are still young and have long lives ahead of us. I’m just not seeing that life continuing on the same way for either of us. I think it is time for us both to move on and make some changes in our lives. It’s fortunate that we never had any children to drag through this and hurt.

I’m starting up a new company and that is going to take up a lot of my time, physically and mentally. I’ve contacted my lawyers and had a divorce agreement drawn up, which I think you will find fair. You can keep the house in Maine and the condo on Majorca. For everything at home that you would call personal possessions, I’ll have your friend Marie and my sister Bethany come in, and box up to store (all the clothes, jewelry, and the like). We’ve only kept photos on the computer, less the ones that are framed. I’ll have Sissy run a copy of the computer albums and have duplicates of the framed pieces made for you, as well. That way, anything you don’t want, you can delete.
