He kind of did...I mean, he did truly love her for many years but he was never overly warm or affectionate, certainly not in a sustained way, rather for shortened manic bursts, and he was an abysmal father to Julian...he knew it and admitted as much many times, even in his letters, but he never did anything to change it. As a father of 4 kids, this cut me deep because I feel awful when I even just snap at my kids when they're being naughty, and John is on record as having said some really cruel things to Julian (making fun of his laugh and saying "don't ever fuckin' laugh like that in front of me again!" almost made me tear up :-( ). And then she and Julian were tossed aside like yesterday's paper when he got with Yoko. He did try to atone for that when he had Sean, but I can understand Cynthia's hurt and bitterness.  That being said, there were so many instances in the book where she relates a story and I was screaming "YOU SHOULD HAVE STOOD UP FOR YOURSELF AND SAID SOMETHING!" And she never really got over John, which is understandable, but she was damaged goods after the divorce and she's on marriage #4 now (and I hope it lasts, for her sake and happiness).

A very sad, yet intriguing, life for all 3 (John, Cyn, Julian) of them.

Me too! I just don´t think that she was like that though, which I suppose is a shame. John could´ve done with being stood up to sometimes, imo. Told when he was out of line (to put it nicely).

I think Cyn´s happy now, living in Mallorca (or Tenerife, I can´t remember), to a husband who she believes to be her soulmate (tho, really, she´s thought that quite a few times - bless her). I´m glad at that, she´s had a harder life than anyone could have ever imagined, especially her.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
