My divorce has been final for a few months now, the marriage was very rocky, including drinking, infidelity, emotional abuse and general disregard for my feelings at all. Work and everything else was always more important. It too me months to summon up the courage to go through with the divorce and while I was sad and we tried to work it out, it just wasn't working. My ex would say he was going to change and get better and treat me better, but he never did. I eventually moved on, started dating a great guy and haven't heard from my ex, except occasional drunk text messages and one for a second chance. He pretty much partied his way through the last few months to cope. We conversed over email recently, over some legal documents we shared, his dealings with me are always very bitter, spiteful. After a few days of receiving a follow up email in regards to this document I asked him why he hated me so much. His response - I don't hate you, it was all me. I met a great person and I will never make the mistakes I made with you, in fact we are going away together this weekend. Wow, I felt like I was punched in the stomach! Now he is a better person?? Why did I have to put up with all the other crap, could our marriage have worked if he made these changes then? Why now?

He kept asking for a long time before I started talking to other guys and so on. I...
