I've been separated for over 2 years & my husband just began divorce proceedings. You'd think after this much time apart, I'd be OK with the divorce but I'm not. We have 3 children, ages 17-21, who seem to be adjusting as well as can be expected but I can't seem to shake the pain I have for them having to experience a broken home. They were shocked when we split as they thought they lived in the perfect home. Our marriage wasn't the best but we put on a good front. My husband just decided he didn't want to be married any longer & denies an affair. Honestly, that's hard too because I feel like he has chosen to live a life alone vs. working on our marriage so I must be a really horrible person that he would choose loneliness over me. At least if there was another woman involved I could possibly understand why he might find her more appealing but he's chosen no one over me. It's really done a number on my self-esteem. When I see him or even see pictures of him, I am not attracted to him at all but I miss having our family together. Do these feelings ever go away? Will our children be scarred forever?
