    I agree they did not have good communication.  She had her own secrets, but her secret keeping increased after Rich started walking on egg shells after her last miscarriage.

    I hadn’t thought about the age difference, but I agree that probably influenced Rich.  Definitely, yes the time period played a part.  But I was a young woman (younger than Colleen) in a relationship with a man 12 years older than I in 1977.  I don’t think I would have forgiven him for spending our life savings without so much as a word about it.
