I would be sitting on the steps, my head between my knees, till five or six in the morning, waiting for them to stop. My parents had a very troubled marriage for a long time, and I was caught in the middle because I was there. But let's just say I didn't grow up with any rose-tinted illusions about love. I learned the hard way how complicated a relationship between a man and woman could be."
