Julie's eldest child, a girl then aged 13, refused to live with her mother, saying she wanted to remain with her father. 'My husband didn't see why he should move out of the family home. Life became very lonely.' Julie has now met someone else. 'I've felt rather emotionally tender for a while now. I can see now that my husband and I were under a tremendous amount of external pressure.
