Well worth the wait. I feel so very sorry for this young couple, trying to be so strong for themselves and each other. Having been through a lot of heartbreak in my time I know how tiring that can be!

Well written wonderful characters in Ryan & Summer. Really looking forward to Ch 4.

Thank you so much for your beautiful reviews and continual support with this fic! I'm very grateful! *HUGS* And you've got it! That's exactly what this story is about. I hadn't seen very many fics like this where there was a true, major struggle and the characters stuck together so I wanted to write one. :)

This chapter is too sad for me! Love R/S but hope things brighten up soon.

Thanks for the review! *HUG* lol, but angst and sadness are my middle name! I'm sorry you thought the chapter was too sad, but I think I'm pacing it realistically for this fic because really the fic in general is about two people who go through the ringer and everything keeps getting worse and worse - they both have insecurities and with each new obstacle it will test their marriage, but their love for each other is so strong that even through everything, they make it out and stick together in the end without divorce, and I promise Ch. 6 and Ch. 7 are VERY happy and fluffy. :)

Things will brighten up, but not completely in one chapter. It will be a gradual progression. One more thing will go "right" in each of the next chapters but there will still be plenty of things going wrong. Both characters are in a funk and miserable so chapter 4 is not much more "happy" than this one. I hope you are okay with that. But Ch. 6 is very happy. Ch. 7 is even happier, but this is based on the song too so I want to stay with the pace of the song so keep that in mind too. :)
