... I thought he would be ruined.

When we are thoroughly sad, the eyes become dry and it takes several months to shed tears. I thought why my husband didn't know such a thing when he said, "You never cry in the face of your child's death." I couldn't cry all the more for thinking that he would be ruined when I heard that he, who had been famous for a dandy, was wandering around with a trench coat inside down after the child's death.  With this thing and that she divorced with him afterword.
