Marni had been dating her husband for about 4 - 5 months and he was everything she wanted. And she told him she was really at a place in her life where she was looking to get married again.
He said he really wanted to be in a relationship with her, but was not sure if he should because he had only been divorced for 6 or 7 months and his therapist has told him he shouldn’t get in a relationship.
And she was all about the rules at that time and decided she if he wasn’t ready to commit to a relationship she would set her boundary and that would be that.
Marni’s intuition told her she needed to not be in control and let things unfold. But she was so worried about protecting herself that she didn’t follow her gut.
Then she decided that everything feels right and if calling what she and Jeremy had a relationship was not working, what if they called it a stapler.
Marni invited him to be in a stapler with her and he said “yes.”
