"I don't know," Chessy said helplessly. "I stood in my house just earlier and thought about how weak and dependent I've become. I have a degree and job experience but used neither in the five years I've been married to Tate. I have no means of supporting myself, which is so incredibly stupid I can't even begin to go there. I have to be the poorest example of womanhood on the planet. The things is I'd be the first one to advise a woman to make sure she can stand on her own two feet and to never depend completely on a man. And yet I gave up everything because I thought it was so sweet and romantic that Tate wanted to take care of me. I was so caught up in the lifestyle we led that I never considered that I'd need to be self-sufficient. Not only does it make hopelessly naive, but it makes me the dumbest woman on earth."
