I was maried over 25 years to a man that cheated on me off and on the entire time. Finally the last affair he had was all I could endure. I lost almost 60 pounds and almost literaly died. He was the love of my life and I met him at the age of 15. We married when I was 17. He was my life. I felt without him I could not make it!! I really believed this all those years. I allowed him to use and abuse me until my self esteem was non existent. We had a business together at the time. He said he loved this woman and I felt my life was over. I lost my marriage and my job and my home, and all at the same time. Only by the grace of God am I alive tonight to tell others about this. It was a long and difficult struggle and it has taken many years to really get over the loss of my marriage. I felt so alone at the time. I did make it!! I was able to get a good job and take care of ME for a change. It was tough going for a long time but at least I finally stopped the abuse of infidelity and all the lies that come with it. There isn't enough space here to tell about all the lies he told me. I wanted so much to believe that his affair meant nothing. Anytime a man that is supposed to be committed to his marriage, or a woman for that matter,isn't seeing to the happiness of his mate, there is a real problem. No one will risk their marriage unless there is intimacy going on. I have learned a lot in all these years, and this much I know is true. If your spouse does not wish to bring you joy and comfort and causes you mental anguish, then be aware HE OR SHE IS CHEATING. This is the way it is!!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
