Let’s back up a little bit in your life. Who is Doug? How did you meet? I want all of that. Doug and I both grew up in a little town here in Wisconsin. I went to high school at the neighboring school. I’ve known him before I even had a driver’s license, around sixteen years old. I was dating this different boy. There used to be this arcade, a place where you play pool and had all the old arcade games, and a pizza joint. When I was in high school, my boyfriend introduced me to this person in Osceola. I started hanging out more. We eventually broke up, and I still came to town. There was this boy who kept coming around. I was like, “Who is this guy?” Our schools were rivals. When the football games were happening, everybody went to them. We were at a football game. He kept circling around like all that childish stuff. One time, we were at the arcade.

We got back together, started dating, and moved in with each other. We bought a house, all of that, and got married. Through our marriage, I got bored, and we got divorced. What age were you when you guys reconnected? It’s 21 or 22 years old. No, you are going too fast. We need to back it up a little bit. What was the transition to catalyst? What made you reconnect with Doug at 21 or 22? I was in this relationship with this boy. It was not a good relationship, and I needed to leave. It was one of those relationships I needed to leave. I don’t know how to get out of this. I don’t have an out. I don’t know how to leave. Doug came and was like, “I’m going to get you out. He went to the house where I was living and started packing. He helped me pack all of this stuff, got me out, …
