The Anniversary Present

"You are the most beautiful woman I have ever met", Kris told his colleague.

“Glad you think so. But, a year ago, you married Tiara and not me..." she replied nonchalantly.

"Forget her! I am present with you! You are my anniversary present! Let's enjoy our time!" he grinned.
 
It was Tiara and Kris's first marriage anniversary.
As she tried her wedding-gown she noticed that she was a poor reflection of what she was a year ago.
She had lost weight.
The gown no longer fit her well.
Waiting late nights for Kris to return from work had taken its toll.

Kris reached home past midnight even on their special day.  
"You are the most beautiful woman I have ever met", Kris told Tiara.
“Glad you think so. But, you need to get your eyes checked... Having a roving eye harms," Tiara replied resolutely.
"Here's your anniversary present," Tiara said while handing over the divorce-papers. 

Did Tiara do the right thing? Should one continue the relationship with such a partner? What do you feel?

  3. Well done. It is better to stay single than to stay married to a lech.
