Janine and Mark are high school sweethearts. They’ve been together since they were 15 and 17. While time seemed to slow down for Mark, it somehow sped up for Janine.
Now, at 39, she looks much older than her actual age. Other women would even hit on her husband thinking that she’s his mother.
Good thing, Mark didn’t bother. He’d even show reassurance by holding her hand or kissing her cheek in public.
But somehow, it still affected her confidence. Janine began noticing people staring and talking whenever he does so.
“I’d move away if he leans in for a kiss.”
“I don’t want people thinking I’m dating my son!”
“I feel like I’m aging faster than my husband and it clearly shows.”
