Jake was impressed by Chris, who he met in night school. She was educated and appeared to be very independent and self-confident. After they married he was uncomfortable with the unusually close relationship that she had with her daddy. He loved her but every little thing about her that he didn’t like was magnified, from her plowshare legs to her snippy superiority. Divorce was beginning to look like a very tempting option. When Chris told him she was pregnant, he knew he needed to man up and be responsible for their baby.
When Daddy continued to become more invasive things began to get even uglier. Jake decided he was going to leave Chris since she seemed to have chosen her father over him. When he found out Chris had a breakdown he was torn with guilt and confusion. Chris told him she had a miscarriage but really was planning on getting an abortion. Finding out that she was still pregnant, he was even more confused.
Jake wasn’t aware that Chris is an alcoholic or that she came into their marriage with a lot more baggage than he ever imagined.
Some family secrets may be too dark to ever overcome.
