Now that four years in prison are behind them, perhaps its time to rethink their relationship.
Several weeks ago, Amanda Knox's international murder trial nightmare came to an end when she was aquitted of all charges in the killing of Meredith Kercher in 2007. Her then boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, was also allowed to walk free and he is finally breaking his silence about his relationship with Amanda..
While Amanda took the first flight back to Seattle, Raffaele remains in his native Italy, using his freedom to reflect on the last four grueling years of his life. He confesses that while they've broken up, Raffaele still has plans to stay in touch with Amanda and even go and visit her before the year is up. He explains:
"I will certainly go and see Amanda [in the United States]. She asked me over and I accepted with pleasure, and there is no saying I will wait until Christmas. I could go earlier — I could go at any moment. I really want to see her again. To speak with her and look into her eyes … We have so many things to say to each other. We need each other… We spent four years in a circle of hell. We suffered unspeakably and it ruined our lives."
He has a point. No matter who she meets along the rest of her young life, know one is every going to know the drama she went through quite like Raffaele. But still, maybe its better if she leaves that part of her life behind.
Either way, so long as she is happy and free, we wish good things for her!
