How naive I was to believe the person I married was sincere when he professed his love for me and his desire to have children and live happily ever after. I understand even those with the best intentions are unable to have lasting love and successful marriage. The most painful truth I discovered was that everything was a lie and that I was manipulated from the very beginning for the sole purpose of fulfilling his demented ideas. He never loved me, is unable to love his children and we were merely another stop on his never-ending journey to make everyone else believe he is a wonderful person. He has this insatiable drive because he knows how dark and rotten he is causing him to spend unlimited amounts of energy building his false self. Truth, as painful as it was, released me from the agony of life with him.
