It's taken me years to get this on point and no doubt tomorrow I'll find more ways to perfect how Michael and T get off their high horses and finally admit they got that spark goin, but for now, here is my definitive "how they got together" headcanon. Just my assumption, don't get butt hurt #trikey
It's 2015, Their eldest is headfirst into her new college semester, Lil Jimmy has just landed himself a tech job working for the heads of Lifeinvader and used an deposit from his parents to buy a cosy apartment near the offices in main LS...it's a change their parents aren't ready for. Two of what should be considered as miracles but given the fact it's Michael and Amanda in an empty house and no common similarities to hold them together...a divorce is the one thing they can agree on.
Several months into The kids being gone and the couple have accepted the marriages inevitable fate. It's been a long time coming but at least they can end it on amicable grounds. The subject begun as a simple what if matter during pillowtalk discussions, it soon manifested and has now found itself their last option following the few years of couples therapy with a practical doctor with a practical sense of what is healthy a dynamic for them to pursue. End of part 1 (stay tuned)
