The tall boy from Nebraska grew into a tall man who worked hard to do what is right for his family. He spent months out to sea, hating it and missing them, but providing for them as a good husband and father should. Going home should have been what he lived for, and at first it was. Later though, he became an outsider to his own family. His ideas differed on how to raise the kids and since he was not there, he lost control over how his own sons were being raised.
This created problems when he was home. He lost respect for his wife and she didn’t want him around anymore. She was fine without him and when he showed up, they fought. Over time, his marriage died. Its not like he lost the love of his life, he says he is not in love with her and wouldn’t make love to her given the chance, but the death of the marriage itself killed him inside and he has not recovered.
