Chris was a great guy and had a level head and I thought that I could concentrate on my career while he took charge of our marriage.Of course, I wanted to give input when I thought it was required, but I was more than happy to let Chris handle the 'day to day' issues that came up. Upon graduation, my life went exactly according to plan.
Unfortunately, once the November election was over, he was again looking for work.
He seemed to drift aimlessly from one consulting job to another and never seemed happy or fulfilled in his career.
At the very least, didn't realize its significance.
Then, the analytical, or perhaps even the manipulative part of my personality took over.
Chris proposed to me the night before our graduation. I also suggested that we take a 'pre-marriage counseling' course.
Being the systematic and rational person that I am, I thought it would be wise to see a therapist so we could work out some of the little issues in our relationship now, so they wouldn't become major problems down the road.
Interestingly, we had never even taken a class together until the fall of our final year and I couldn't even remember seeing him around campus.
He still doesn't believe this, but I knew we'd get married on our second date.
I knew he had no idea that our browser tracked everything he did when he was online.
