    I agree with Jenn. Absolutely beautiful, and very wise.

    Dear Johnny! As I said over on Twitter, this is your best column so far. One of the reasons , yet not the only one, is that I’ve got the feeling that you finished your process of thoughts, and you still have left room for readers ,and you, to start or continue their own processes of thoughts. Victor has been right when he tweeted about the column being your best one #luckiest. Congrats. I wish for you to continue like that.

    By the way, one of my favourite quotes is (paraphrasing it since I don’t have the original one at hand):

    Love does not consist in gazing at eachother but looking out in the same direction.

    I’ll be back correcting when I’ll have found the original quote.

    Been waiting to read this ever since Victor’s tweet. I see now why he was so moved by it. My heart is aching a little bit for you being much the lone myself and found it difficult in the first couple years of my marriage that I actually had in INCLUDE my husband in my hyjinx.. something I wasn’t used to doing. Now married almost 15 years, we’re still learning and changing. You have a long road ahead of you and I know you two have what it takes to stay together. I’m so sorry you felt and feel so alone in the world with so many that love you, it must be overwhelming and make you want to crawl in a hole sometimes. Just always know, that your TRUE friends and fans will support you and love you, and of course, Victor and your families will always be your fortress.
    Continue to love and inspire.
    xoxo

    A really honest, moving, and soul-searching column. As a veteran of 38 years of marriage, I agree with Johnny that love and marriage do not mean being joined at the hip. It is mentally healthy for each spouse to maintain different sets of friends and to hang out with them separately at times. On the other hand, I can also see how a new spouse would certainly like to be introduced to the partner’s myriad friends and get to know the other’s world, too, and ask to hang out with his partner’s friends from time to time. Yet, I can definitely see how Johnny’s eyes might glaze over when Victor gossips with frat brothers about old times, or discusses legal cases, and would rather click his Louboutins together and catch up with the fashion world (which may hold the seeds of his future). Marriage demands very hard work, fortitude, and continuous dialog and compromise. Happily, a good marriage is the closest thing to living two lives at the same time and can greatly enrich one’s life with far-flung experiences.

    When my husband and I were first married, I never wanted to be away from his side but I soon realized that separation was not a bad thing. Absence does make the heart grow fonder.
