    Does it get easier

    8
    So 12 days ago my world was blown apart by those horrible words that keep repeating in my head, "I'm not happy anymore. I want a divorce." Not only was this told to me over the phone while I was at work, but less than 3 hours later he had told the kids (before they left for school, and before I got home.) He had packed a bag and was gone.  12 1/2 years of marriage over. If I am completely...

    Cheating spouses

    5
    My husband and I are working on some issues. I recently found out that he hired an escort 3 times -- something that he has never done before and is totally out of character. He had been faithful throughout our 20-year relationship (we have been married for 10 years), which included intermittent long-distance relationships of as long as 3 years. Through our conversations, I realized that he did...
  • So, this is the story. I have been dating a really great guy for the past 2 years. We were in love, we were able to problem solve well together and he was so nurturing to me at the beginning of the relationship especially since I was very apprehensive to get back in dating after my last break up after 4 years (which ended badly).  So this relationship was truly great - except, throughout the...

    I'm new and in need of some support.  We've been married for 25 years. The kids are grown and gone and we are having a really hard time.  You see, my husband has expressed to me that he has been unhappy for most of our marriage because he feels as though I have never been in his corner.  He feels like I have always put the children before him.  He's not entirely wrong for feeling this way....

    Thankful

    2
    I just want to say how grateful I am for technology and to be able to connect with so many people going through similar pain, and heartbreak. We're all strangers and will probably never meet outside of this group. We'll probably never hear each other's voice, but we know such intimate details of each other. Grateful for this safe space to pour out my heart in it's entirety, say all of my feelings...

    When does it stop

    The anxiety attacks, spending the nights crying. Faking a smile. When does it all stop? We're no contact, haven't seen him in two months. But it still hurts like we JUST broke up. When does it get better? I still love him. I still want him. The only thing I keep thinking about is a future with him and every time I do, I squish those thoughts. I tell myself no. Not maybe, not someday. I tell...

    Lonely

    Ok, here's where I'm at right now. The boundaries have been pretty much set by the two of us for as long as we live in the same house together. First day of these boundaries, it actually went much better than I had thought it would. No fights, no stern words, not much of anything really. We both interacted with the kids, so nothing wrong there either. Here's the issue. In addition to no...

    Dark day

    I am really struggling today. I just don't know if my wife will ever get over the pain I have caused. I think she may still be seeing her affair partner as well. We spoke last night before bed and I really saw and felt the hardness in her heart. I am shattered right now, staring at the cold waves. It is overcast and a perfect day for crying. I wish I understood why life is such a struggle, why we...
