He has so many simple questions for me that I can't answer because I don't know the answer. 'Like, why can't we still live together?’ That’s just not what people do when they get divorced. ‘But why not?’ I’m like, I don’t f**king know. That’s not what society does. And: ‘Why don’t you love my dad anymore?’ And I’d be like, I do love your dad. I’m just not in love. I can’t make that make sense to a nine-year-old.
