My wife of 8 yrs filed for divorce on 2/14/07 after a very short(3weeks) separation. We were also seeing a counselor during that time. She said that she just doesn't love me anymore. We have 4 yr old daughter. I have supported her financially throughout our relationship until last year when she started a new career. After she filed, I learned of a boyfriend through her work (traveling). I also entered a treatment facility for alcohol abuse. (I was a functioning alcoholic, professional banker with the same company for 10 yrs. I never drank at home or during the day, only after work most days from 5-6 usually. My thoughts were that if I was going to get divorced, I did not want to be one of those guys at the end of the bar every night feeling sorry for himself.) People close to me tell me that I should be happy, that she has done me a favor, but I feel so abandoned, betrayed and left behind. I am miserable trying to find closure and answers to so many questions. She will barely speak to me about anything other than our daughter. She is emotionless and cold and I wonder who the hell she is because I have never seen this side of her before.
