My soon-to-be ex-husband might be my soul mate. I’m pretty sure he is. You don’t know someone is your soul mate until the end of your time. Soul mate isn’t a pre-existing condition, it’s an earned title. Soul mates are made over time. That’s what Pamela Druckerman wrote in the NY Times, anyway, and it mirrors what I’ve always felt. Each person has a bunch of soul mates walking around the planet. As Druckerman tells it, “You will miss out on some near soul mates. This goes for friendships, too. There will be unforgettable people with whom you have shared an excellent evening or a few days. Now they live in Hong Kong, and you will never see them again. That’s just how life is.”
Serge and I are bound together for life because we have three beautiful children whom we love more than anything. That’s a heavy bond, and one I’m honored to share with him.
