Sarah is 45, mother of two, a daughter in college and son still in high school.  She has been married 22 years to Mark, a highly successful litigation partner. Mark travels a lot, is “in trial” a lot. Although they haven’t spoken of it directly, she knows their marriage is falling apart. They haven’t spoken about this directly because of the tacit agreement that they “don’t have the time’”and that any such conversation has to wait until the trial is over.

“When he’s ‘in trial’,” raising her hands to do air quotes, “it’s like he’s been body snatched, like someone who looks just like him has been hatched out of a pod somewhere and my real husband is gone.”
