She wanted “to do life,” as she put it, and she wanted Daniel to do life with her.But after long weeks of work, Daniel was tired on weekends, maybe even more than usual, as he tried to come to terms with his wife’s diagnosis.
This was not at all what Daniel had in mind when he proposed opening the marriage.
