The Way Home

The Way Home

This article was originally published in Russian by Cherta.

I’ve known my husband for more than ten years. At first, we were just friends. He was married; I was married. We lived in different regions: he was in a town in the Northwest and I was in Moscow Oblast.

I divorced a year later due to cheating and an unhealthy relationship. In 2021, my future husband was also on the verge of divorce. I decided to go support my old friend. One thing led to another. I and a bunch of his friends came along for the divorce proceedings. Upon exiting the Civil Registry building, he was greeted with balloons and a cake in the face. That very day he proposed to me. We settled in Moscow Oblast.
