I had it all, and i'm

not talking

About worldly possessions.

I'm talking about

everything that truly

Matters in this life, but

i threw it all away,

And for what?

I couldn't have asked for

more, but that's exactly

What i searched for, and

exactly what i got;

More than my soul can bear.

i'll do what you say...

you say...

i'll do what you say...

bring me back home...

stranded in a

lower place...

my trust in you is

the better case...

you know what is

right for me...

all my mistakes have

worn me down...

i can't make it alone...

your wonderful grace

is always found...

you're someone

who knows...

i'll do what you say...

you say...

i'll do what you say...

bring me back, oh...

I remember it like

it was yesterday.

Her beauty took my breath

away, and her love

Consumed every part of me.

I, amber, take you

doug to be my husband, my

Partner, and my one true

love, and promise to

Cherish our union and love

you every day more than i

Did the day before.

I promise to trust

and respect you...

And laugh and

cry with you...

And love you faithfully

through the bad and the

Good, no matter what

obstacles we may face.

I give you my hand,

my heart and my love.

From this day forward,

as long as we

Both shall live.

I, doug, take you amber

to be my wife, my friend,

And my love from

this day forward.

In the presence of our

family and our friends, i

Offer you this solemn

to be your faithful

Partner in sickness and in

health, for richer or for

Poorer, in good times and

in bad, and in joy,

As well as sorrow.

I promise to love

you unconditionally.

I promise to

laugh with you.

I promise to cry with you,

and cherish you for as

Long as we both

shall live.

- You may exchange rings.

By the power vested in

me, i now pronounce you

Husband and wife. You

may kiss the bride.

My world felt

like a story book.

We were unstoppable.

Eternity was ours

just for the taking.

That was the beginning of

something beautiful, and

In retrospect, the

end of our innocence.

That was a

magical day...

Like a fairytale

come true.

It's something i had

always dreamed about since

I was a little girl,

to have my knight in

Shining armor carry

me from the church

To the waiting horse

and carriage.

She never wavered from

the vow she made to

Me on our wedding day.

I wish i could

say the same.

I took her for granted.

I was blinded by

lust and greed.

It's all a mirage.

The grass is never greener

on the other side.

It's only greener

where you water it.

That's what she

used to say to me.

I never listened, but

i hear it now

Loud and clear.

- Don't go.

- No.

I better get back to work.

- Take the day off.

- I can't.

Somebody's got to

pay for this place.

Love doesn't come cheap.

- No, but i'm worth it.

- Yeah, you are.

Why don't i take an entire

month off, go to paris?

- You're so good to me.

Tired of waiting, though.

When are you

going to tell her?

- Tonight.

- Tonight.

It's about time.

I kind of feel

sorry for her.

She doesn't even

know it's coming.

I don't feel

sorry for her.

- Well, you should.

You won.

It wasn't a


No, she didn't stand

a chance once i met you.

I saved you from

your boring life.

- True.

Very true, and thank you.

- Same time tomorrow?

- Can't come soon enough.

We'll celebrate.

I gotta get back to work.

- Hey, mom.

- Hey, sweetheart.

Is dad coming

home for dinner?

He just called. He's

on his way.

You want to help me

set up the table?

- Sure.

Great, oh, and

use the good china.

- Is it a special night?

I just want it to

be nice for your dad.

Seems he's been working

late every night.

Do you think he

can come to my karate

Tournament this weekend?

- I sure hope so.

I know how much

it means to you.

It's the state


- I know. We're so proud of you.

- Thanks, mom.

I absolutely

dreaded going home.

I know it sounds

terrible, but it's true.

I let myself get to a

place where the only

Truthful things in my

life felt like lies.

It's strange how that

works when what you're

Doing is so wrong.

Even seeing my

daughter was hard.

I adored her, but it

riddled me with guilt

Just seeing her face.

- Dad!

Hey, munchkin. How

was your day?

- Better now.

Mine, too. I'm sorry. I should

have called. I got tied up.

You, it's a

school night. Off to bed.

- Okay. Dad, can you

Come to my karate

tournament this weekend?

I wouldn't miss

it for the world.

- Yes! Love you.

- Love you, too, honey.

- Night, dad.

- I'm glad you're home.

Let me go warm up dinner.

- Okay.

- Okay.

- Thanks for dinner.

- It's my pleasure.

You're not eating much.

Did you want know get

you something else?

- No, it's fine.

I don't know about

these green beans.

Last week, they

just seemed,

I don't know, sweeter.

Are you okay?

- Look, amber i...

I can't do this anymore.

What on earth are

you talking about?

- Us.

Our marriage.

Where on earth is

this coming from?

- Amber...

You're a good person.

I'm just not happy.

I feel like we've been

growing apart like...

Like we want different

things out of life.

I want out.

- You want out?

There's more to it

than that, but yeah.

- I see.

Isn't this just a

little bit cliche?

- What?

- Come on, doug. I'm not stupid.

The new clothes,

the flashy car...

And the late

nights working.

I can't believe this.

This is hard for me
