While I was living abroad, I fell in love with a very fine, sensitive man whose thinking was quite different from mine. At that time I knew little about Christian Science, but for guidance I studied almost daily the chapter "Marriage" in Science and Health. The more I studied and asked God to show me the right way, the more I realized this man was not the appropriate marriage partner for me. I did not end up marrying him, but was still unwilling to accept what God had clearly guided me to understand through my study: "Kindred tastes, motives, and aspirations are necessary to the formation of a happy and permanent companionship" (p. 60).

Around that time two friends and I were hitchhiking back to their hometown. A man came by and offered to take us. Although it had come to me clearly not to accpet this ride, I did not listen to wise intuition; I was feeling abandoned and wanted to end my life if I could not marry my boyfriend. The driver of our car lost control, and I was thrown over a cliff.
