It’s different, totally different than anything you’ve ever experienced.” Sorry, Cris.

I thought I had learned that in my first marriage … I loved Cris, still love him. He’s one of the best people. This wasn’t easy to walk away from, but we didn’t have what it takes to make a marriage work. Cris knows the last thing I ever wanted in this fucking world was to hurt him.”

“I was very young the first two times I tried to get married,” she said, elucidating, “I would say try to get married.” She added: “It seems like in this life, people always surround you, you’re never lonely, but it’s very lonely,” she continued. “So you always want somebody with you.
