Afterwards, Mel's manager Howard asked me out for a drink.
They were leaving town the next day, and there was no chance our lives ever would have intersected if Howard hadn't seized that moment to make his move.
They’re both happy dating other people and there’s no jealousy. The meaning of "family" started to evolve into something different.We were living in a small town and no one had yet invented the concept of conscious uncoupling.He suggested that while we went on a three-day honeymoon, Howard could stay in our house with the kids.
I was dumbfounded by my new husband allowing my ex-husband to stay at our home, but that's exactly what we did. Howard didn't continue staying in our house, but he drove up every few weeks.I sure didn't think we'd be as close as we once were.
