The Starter Husband
By Gretchen Voss
Still, even unapologetic Andi admits that the process is not always easy. On the one hand, I felt empowered, like, Woo-hoo, I have the rest of my life in front of me. But there were moments of, Oh, my God, Im a divorcee does that mean Im all washed up? she says. Its why, she suggests, she turned to drinking heavily for several months after her breakup, trying to reconcile those thoughts and perhaps, I suspect, dull some of the pain shes so sure she never felt.
Then she met David. He was supposed to be her rebound relationship. Three years later, she realized that she wanted to have kids with him and that was the clincher.
Andi lifts her 2-month-old daughter up to her breast in the middle of the café. I ask if her second husband is The One, since they have kids and all. Im happy, but I try not to think about it, she says. Its like, if I thought I had to have my hair the same way for the rest of my life, Id freak out.
