Laura Munson's 2009 New York Times article made a huge splash as she explained to the world how she took it in stride when her husband told her that he didn't love her any more and maybe never had. She tells the whole story in her new memoir, "This Is Not the Story You Think It Is," published last week. On "Good Morning America," Munson spoke about her decision to stick by her husband while he figured his life out. "I believed in us," she said, and was unwilling to give in to her husband's call for divorce. "Ultimately, however," she said, "this is not a strategy about staying together, it's a philosophy about taking care of yourself during a crisis." Her patience was a way of controlling what she could during a very difficult time, and eventually it paid off when her husband realized his mistake and came back.
