We all watched in disbelief as Jesse James broke Sandra Bullock's heart again and again as numerous affairs surfaced.
And we all hated him.
But, now that the flood waters have receded, it appears that the damage may not be quite beyond repair, and a friend of Sandra's is saying that the two have moved beyond talking strictly about the kids, and more about their daily lives.
A source tells PopEater:
"Sandra has made it clear that Jesse is the love of her life," a friend of the actress [says]. "She's not the sort of lady that just stops loving someone, no matter what he did behind her back. Sandra misses him and their life together every single day.
"Jesse has made her smile again. She can finally have a normal conversation with him again without focusing on the pain and anger."
Most immediate reactions would be: "No! Are you crazy to get back together with him?!" and that's normal for an outsider. But what if that was you, your children (biological or not), and the love of your life? Not so simple now, eh?
I think we can all agree that Jesse is a disgusting pig and that Sandra deserves better, but have you ever had a girlfriend who was dating a guy that you thought she was too good for and tried to tell her that? I am willing to bet that she didn't listen, heck, I've been her and I know I never listened. The bottom line is, the only people that really know what's going on in a relationship are the two people that are involved. I am sure there are things that have happened between these two that didn't make the cover of Us Weekly.
After my automatic "No, Sandra, say it ain't so!" I thought about it and put myself in her shoes. If it was my love, and my children, and he's gone through the steps (rehab, therapy, etc.) to try and fix the issues that resulted in the separation, then yes ... I think I would try to work things out. And I'm sure it would be to the utter dismay of all of my friends and family.
That's just me though, and every relationship and every situation is different.
Put yourself in their shoes and tell me, what would you do? Stay divorced or get back together?
