When Marc Silver set out to do research for his book, Breast Cancer Husband, he was stunned by the amount of stories of infidelity he heard. But this post isn't about the women betrayed by their husbands, it's about those who are made strong enough to leave a bad marriage.
During Silver's research, he also met a woman who said her husband was lazy and unsupportive during her toughest time. "After I was diagnosed, I lost 200 pounds," she told Silver. It wasn't from the chemotherapy--she dropped 200 pounds of husband. It's likely the couple was having problems before, but her newfound strength enabled her to finally leave a marriage that wasn't working.
Battling breast cancer and all of its subsequent treatments can turn you into a warrior of sorts. If you're strong enough to take on a deadly disease, who knows what other battles you can wage--and win. You might just find yourself standing up to many of the problems you thought were insurmountable before. [Los Angeles Times]
