  • I was married to Andrew for five years. I’m not surprised at this at all, just thankful I got out of the horrid situation, with my life. He got away with almost murdering me, guess this time he’ll actually pay for his crime. Although I’m in incredible debt because of his meth addiction and irresponsibility, I’m alive.
