It seems so terribly wrong that after 31 years of marriage I am sitting here looking in the Sunday Paper for a waitress job. I stayed at home all my life to raise our children and be a wife and now he has left me and I am looking for minimum wage employment. I do not have any job skills that any employer has wanted. I put together a very interesting resume but if you read between the lines well I am not going to make much $. How can this be?I am going after spousal support but it still seems wrong that I am fighting in court over something that is mine. HIS INCOME!!! I don't mind working for a living but I do mind him walking away with his comfortable salary and me struggling for rest of my life. How do you get past these feelings of resentment? I gave him my list of what I want from him and told him if he comes back with a marital settlement agreement with anything less than that I will see him in court. I refuse to play the barganing game. I will only take less if a judge makes me. I realize that the best revenge is living well without him but how do I do that knowing he is financially well off and I am woking two jobs? Where is the justice in all of this? I am looking at some college courses that I hope to squeeze in between jobs but what the F!!!!!! Just ranting....Seems like it helps. Thanks for listening.
