How true this is! I have a similar story. I am a teacher and had been with my boyfriend (now husband) for two years when I first started teaching. In the staff room one lunch time, an 'older' teacher (probably my age now!) was telling us that she feigned sleep when she heard her husband approaching the bedroom. I remember being absolutely horrified and the other teachers laughed at me as if they were all in on some sick joke. A few years ago, I approached this same teacher and told her that I was now following in her footsteps. She didn't need to say anything- we spoke the same silent language. I bet she wanted to scream, "I told you so!" I know I would've.
