Excerpt: Mixed Marriages and Other Relationships by Angelia Vernon Menchan

“So Ms. Delia it sounds like young Thane Whitton has my sister sprung like an old mattress!” Delia actually giggled.

“Girl, he is all that and more and it isn’t just the sex, which is hot and off the sheets. But he is funny and a good man. I’m filing for divorce.”

The look on Cinnamon’s face was pure shock. Delia had been married over 35 years, though she and her husband were separated for most of them and now she was talking about a divorce.

“Woman, close your damn mouth. It’s time. Thane told me he’s no longer interested in committing adultery with me. Mind you he doesn’t mind fornication but no adultery.

We had a very awkward moment last week. David showed up from New York, unannounced which he never does.”

“He probably suspected something.”

“I guess but it was weird. Thane and I were sitting out by the lake drinking coffee and he walked around and introduced himself. I was in a swimsuit and Thane was in shorts, no shirt. David was cool; he chatted for a minute and then rolled on. I haven’t heard from him since he left.”

“Wow. That must have been hard for you.”

“It was but what made it hard was Thane getting up and leaving, telling me to handle my business on the way out. I was shook, wasn’t sure until then how involved my feelings were.”

“So are you thinking of marrying?”

“Cinnamon I can’t marry him. He is 43 and I am 61, I can’t give him any babies, he should be allowed to have children, but I think I love him.” Cinnamon almost fell off her chair. She had never seen Delia so vulnerable.
