Every girl who is looking for her Prince Charming always envisions a tall, dark and handsome man.
Few descriptions of this person ever describe his mental condition; however, psychology tells us that if a person is tall, dark and handsome, the halo effect that we ascribe to him will automatically include intelligence, wit and mental stability.
Everyone said that this was his true personality, so I ended up asking him out.
With his doctor’s permission, he actually went off of his medication for a while in order to show me exactly what a worst-case scenario would be like.
I chose him only after experiencing that episode firsthand.
Once I got over needing to have a cartoon as my life partner, I found the love of my life in a package much different than the Disney caricature.
Believe it or not, I actually met my husband at an AA meeting.
We both wanted kids; we definitely had to agree on this point in order to get married.
