You know, I'm a little ambivalent as to how I feel about this story. Honestly, I don't know if I like it or if I don't.
As I was reading, I slowly became alarmed at how the discontent and pettiness abounded within the story. As I continued, I became uneasy because I couldn't recognize the couple I love. Then I read the word "divorce" and I started wondering if I stumbled with the white rabbit into wonderland. My first thought was "NO!".
'Tis pretty cynical, don't you think? I mean, I would never, even for one moment, imagine that LL and CK's married life is one perfect story. After all, their lives are far beyond normal. But considering their characters, I think this is a harsh outlook and somewhat skewed. It could be a possibility, I'd grant you that.
Hope is what I've always taken away from Lois and Clark. So I'm pinning my faith that this is one story among countless many that's aimed to challenge. But challenge what? Destiny has written and tried to re-write their story. It always ends the same. They're STILL together. ...I suppose as they are in your story, as well.
Bravo for a story that scared me just a little and made me think. Great job!

I can't remember how long ago I read this, I just know I haven't been able to get it out of my mind. I'm a big fan of stories that have the abilty to turn what we know about the characters upside down and inside out, but still keeping them within the realm of what we know to be true. Personally, I believe this is one of those stories. Marriage is hard so why should that be any different for these two complicated people. I love the possibilty that this could happen, if they let little problems become bigger problems.
Thanks for this wonderful albeit sad story. Adding to favorites.

I almost stopped reading this halfway through because I'm a firm believer in Lois and Clark and I think their relationship would work much better than this. But you do have interesting things to say about marriage, and at least the ending was somewhat hopeful. Well written, even if it's not the Lois/Clark I have in mind.

Okay then. I think I'll go wash my face and forget I ever read this.
In all seriousness, you do raise some great points about marriage, about relationships, and about Lois and Clark, but in all honesty I still don't see this ever happening. It COULD happen, but it WOULDN'T happen, at least from my point of view.
I'll give credit where it is due...it was very well written and you did convey your version of what Lois was thinking and feeling very well.
But even so, that doesn't mean I liked it.

Well done. Hopefully someone in the Smallville universe can hand them a copy of Aaron T. Beck's "Love is Never Enough".

Great story! It seems realistic that this would happen in the clois relationship, so thumbs up! Keep up the good work! :)
