To explain Daniel, Gabi’s father, think of a big teddy bear. Think of someone who puts everyone else first. A kind, considerate person who was easy to love.
Living with Daniel was like being with an android. He never had a suggestion, idea, plan. He always went with whatever was suggested.
He went to work, came home and was fully available at all times.
If I had been twenty years older when I married him, it might have worked. But I was young, had dreams, ideas, wanted adventures, and he was so boring. I tried not to fall out of love with him, but it was impossible.
I didn’t see him as a husband, just a teddy bear, and I was young enough to want a husband.
So we divorced, I got everything, although I had wanted Gabi to be with him.
At the time he was under a lot of pressure at work, had to travel, and so I became the main care giver.
