"And a good man is something to hold onto, no matter the minor inconveniences"
What constitutes a good man? The perception of the partner? His behaviour towards his family? It is difficult and like the curates egg - people can be good in parts.
Interesting how far and what constitutes a minor inconvenience. Having a child? Trying to forget that the child exists? Respect for the other party?
A woman I knew had a child and because she was married to an Erik she hid the child away pretending it did not exist, when friends came round the child would be hidden away, one day he tried smothering the child with apillow eventually he left - just a minor inconvenience a loving amn for the family?
No one is worth holding onto if they don t respect the mother and child.
