The recent post about family members made me curious about the double standards that my so called husband had for me. I know most of us have problems with family members not understanding to the point of being judgmental about our condition. My soon to be ex-husband has defended our current president and the accusations of socialistic policies to hell and back. He is so ready to defend the policies that provide some hope for the less fortunate. Yet when doctors and colleagues recommended that I file for disability due to my conditions, he said he did'nt want a wife who lived off of the state. Mind you, I have worked two jobs most of my life starting when I was 16. Since the age of 16, I have never been unemployed for more than a month. For years I worked two jobs, even while we were married. Now I am having medical problems and I shouldn't apply for the benefits that I have worked my butt off for. I am not talking about taking welfare benefits or SSI. I am talking about all the social security taxes I have paid to have this disability coverage. I paid for these benefits. That's like saying don't file a claim on your auto insurance because it will be other policyholders paying your claim though you paid your premiums for decades.. Just plain ridiculous!! So he argues with his own parents about others being able to collect benefits they didn't even pay for but he has a problem with me collecting what I did pay for?! (This is the man that is filing for divorce because he doesn't want to take the chance on having to take care of someone in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.) What the hell is wrong with this man and such ridiculous double standards?! Anyone else?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
