The Trilogy – Legal Speak-ish
This week, we will discuss a few minor points about these types of changes and how a couple potentially handle them.
It’s a fictional account that was influenced by a few social media conversations some time ago. It’s for entertainment purposes. This is not advice.

Should you feel the need to have changes made and need advice, do please seek a qualified counselor who can assist you.
All of this legal sounding terms is to help clarify that this is a work of fiction for your entertainment only. No matter how relevant, pressing, timely it may sound. As a fictional account, none of the characters are designed to represent anyone, situations, or ideas of a person.
Another Sneak Peak
Albert felt that his preciously guarded personal life was going to get shut down. Dorothy knew little about his private life outside their marriage. There was nothing to hide but everything to lose. Should she discover that his happiness flourished outside the home, Dorothy would do all in her power to destroy his joy and happiness.
It was bad enough that Dorothy had nearly wiped all evidence of Albert out of their home. Practically sanitized it clear out. With each passing week, Dorothy left a note about something Albert needed to throw away. Throwing away his own presence.
Shaking his head, Albert wondered about the Kool Aide had been drinking. He had given up much ground to Dorothy. Now, the last stand needed to be taken. All this modern talk about freedom of independent female voices had silenced his.
Albert couldn’t think of where to start with the blame throwing, instead, he did what he did best. He blamed himself for having gotten so deeply twisted.
If his outside fun was in the arms of another woman, Albert would not be mad at Dorothy for cracking down on his fun. However, his fun had been clean, wholesome, income producing, legitimate work. Just not the kind of work Dorothy wanted him to do. Albert didn’t have a job, he had several gigs that paid well.
Now, Dorothy was on a witch hunt to expunge all the fun that was left in his soul, all in the name of equal rights. What right did she have to destroy his life in order for her to have a great one?
