  1. Noooo!!! Shit!!!!! Noooooooooooooo 🙁

  2. Not the point, but, I like the way “I’d’ve” is written here. I always wondered, should it be written out “I’d have”, but be said super fast? Should the apostrophe between I and D be dropped? Surely there can’t be two apostrophes….
    But, you decided here that yes, there would be two apostrophes, and it looks great. Thank you.

    1. It’s a contraction of “I would have”, so “I [woul]d [ha]ve”; the two omitted bits necessitate two apostrophes, so “I’d’ve”.

    What they’re saying about not being “whole” is true in a very literal way.
    Studies have found that when you spend enough time with a partner, your minds begin to share mental tasks. One person will remember dates, the other names, etc. This causes one’s neural pathways to strengthen/weaken to better accommodate the roles filled by yourself and your partner.

    Since we lose our neuro-plasticity as we age, restructuring your mind to function independently grows tougher as well. For older long-married couples, the loss of your lover becomes something you cannot neurologically recover from. (Assuming you were both dependent enough to begin mentally meshing, of course.)
