How do you love someone but decide you only want to be around part-time? That's what my stbx told me today. He doesn't want to stop seeing his girlfriend, but he misses our life together. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. She's been around 3 months and he told me she's dying of cancer. He said he doesn't think he's capable to really love either of us enough. We were married for 15 years and have 2 kids 7 & 12. Somebody please tell me he's losing it, this can't be normal. In a way I feel fortunate in that through all my tears and heartache, he's starting to look disgusting to me. He said I wasn't fun enough, too busy working so he could have 2500sq.ft. garage, classic auto's, numerous hunting trips and his own cigar lounge. If he wanted it, we got it. All I wanted was him to be thankful for what we already had. Today he told me he just can't and wants us to be friends. How do you bury 15 years of your life because if you have to think about it, it still just rips you apart? And all he can say is , Sorry.
