Both my mother and my ex-wife are femme fatales. They both have done horrible things to me. My mother was so bad to me, we're not on speaking terms.
But, I know she's loyal. If I were to need help, she would be the first person I'd contact.
My ex-wife helps me a lot. It's been three years since our divorce, but when we're on the phone, it's like nothing ever changed between us. We would
have never been divorced outside of her need to have a child, and my unwillingness to have one. She's so loyal that she's begging me to move to where
she lives so she can help me on a regular basis.
I know none of this makes sense to those who want to believe that morality is the preeminent thing in life.
to those who want to believe that morality is the preeminent thing in life.
I think what you are referring to is the sense of moral outrage that "It was done to me."
That's the kind of reaction that it's good to get past quickly.
Here's another expression of moral outrage:
My divorce decree has a clause written in it which states, "No amount of co-habitation will render the divorce null." Which means that we can live in
the same house all we want. We've taken advantage of that quite a bit over the years.
So my ex left her new husband to get a job and dwelling in another state. So I packed up the kids and moved them. Made several trips moving stuff.
Meanwhile, she had been working, making friends, getting to know the town.
Finally, moving done, I meet one of her friends, instant attraction, leading to a sort of obsession. My ex knew her and her ways, but she didn't tell
me. A year later, I was singing this song. Notice it's directed at those who knew.
