Things in the Ramaswami home has been stressed. The couple has been walking on eggs shells around each other, well, more like Mohindr has been doing the eggshell walk.
Danielle, not so much. She tries her best to act as if everything is normal, which makes Mohindr act all the more standoffish. And she has no idea why.
She hasn't even been with anyone else since Brandon. And hey, a little flirting never hurt anyone.
Counseling really hasn't helped. It did get their feelings about each other and their marriage out in the open, but has it really helped? No. Or maybe it has, Danielle really isn't that sure. To pass the long lonely hours at home she plays basketball. Not only does it help her stay in shape it helps clear her head.
Mohindr passes the time with Colby, helping him with his speech and visiting his parents. When he got married he never though married life would be like this. But then again, who gets married thinking that their wife would cheat on them only two year into said marriage.
He sighs, driving the thoughts away. He's done all he can. He's resigned to his fate.
Danielle is resigned as well. She really wishes she could turn back time and stop what she did with Brandon. Not because she feels guilty, but because she's mad that she's hurt Mo in such a way. She loves him regardless of the affair, and she hates to see him in pain.
But on the other hand, she can't repress who she is. She gave married life a shot. It didn't work out so well for her.
So after a few months of counseling, fighting and basically living as strangers, Mohindr and Danielle Ramaswami file for divorce. They must appeare before the current mayor and judge.
He's reviewed the case and now hears both sides stories.
He agrees to grand the divorce and with just a signature Mohindr's marriage is no more. But before Antwan lets them leave his give Danielle a few parting works.
"You've caused much turmoil and heartbreak, young lady. You have destroyed your marriage, your family, and uprooted the stability that was provided for your son. You need to understand that there are consequences to all your actions. And what you do just doesn't effect you, it effects everyone involved. So next time before you decided to do something not so bright, take a moment and think about it."
Danielle is taken aback. Why attack her? She gets it. She did a huge and terrible thing. But giving her a lecture. So not called for.
Mohindr is glad that this is finally over. He's heartbroken and angry, but also relieved. He wanted to forgive Danielle, but he could never trust her again. How could he be sure that she would never cheat on him again.
It's time to close this chapter of his life and move on with his son.
Well that is that. I actually had to stop them from making out and woohooing. LOL Even with Mohindr mad at Danielle ACR was making them still interact. But he did roll a want to fall back in love with her. And I was going to do it. I was going to have them work things out. But I thought about it, and Mohindr isn't the type that would take a woman back who cheated on him. So I gave them a divorce. In the long run I think it's what is best, but we will find out sooner or later.
As it stands Mohindr was awarded custody of Colby since he had the more stable job between him and Danielle. She gets Colby on the weekends. And Colby is her saving grace. If they didn't have a son together she was going back to being a townie, now she gets bumped up to non-playable playable. You might see a few updated from her from time to time, I'm not sure yet.
