Anonymity: Easier to lie. Easier to tell the truth.

Apparently it's Truth Week on On Happiness, as I stumbled across this article.

It's a short article, but I'll summarize it anyway. After chatting online anonymously about their separate marriage troubles, a man and a woman met for a secret date, only to discover that the person they had been chatting with all along was their current spouse. "new">Jimmy Buffet would be proud.

Except these two are getting divorced.

The saddest part of the story to me is not that they're getting divorced, it's that it sounds like the marriage could have been better all along:
I still find it hard to believe that Sweetie (her screen name), who wrote such wonderful things, is actually the same woman I married and who has not said a nice word to me for years
