She can’t do the things she wanted to do because she was preoccupied with so many things for her family.
Third Party Issue
Ted’s work require him to be in different places, meet new people and hit his quota every month. He was so busy at work that he barely have the energy to help Jen in the house. They don’t talk anymore because it’s either they were too tired at work or they can’t simply find the time. Unknowingly, Ted was longing for companionship and love. Amelia came, his coworker. She was the girl that Jen used to be. Ted fell in love with Amelia and had a romantic relationship with her.
The Unending Quarrel
