    So it's been two weeks out of my marriage.

    I've had a few moments where I'm like "am I doing the right thing", but mostly it's been pretty good actually. I did have a good day today until tonight. I've had to move in with my brother because I have no money, no job and no where to go so he took me in. I get told from...

    My wife told me 5 days ago

    that she wants to leave. She did not use the words divorce but I am wondering if I still even have a chance. I do not want to give up but I believe my wanting to talk to her and work it out is pushing her further away. My heart is breaking and I feel so very alone. I am not...

    I separated with my husband of 17 years about 5

    weeks ago, and I was ok with it, or at least that was what I thought. We agreed to go our separate ways and that we had just grown apart. we hadn't had any intimacy in at least 4 years (his choice not mine). We found somewhere for him to move that would be available in a few...

    I am new to being separated only a few weeks in

    and it has been one hell of an emotional roller coaster. My husband has been going on a down spiral for a while now and I been trying to make it work. This man has hurt me in the worst way possible and made me feel like a fool. I thought he was really my Mr. Right and turned out...

    Its that time of the year

    when the holidays brings people together. One of my managers tried to make small talk and asked if I was married. On paper, yes I am but in real life, I am separated which is not the easiest thing to announced when question by someone whose approval you seek. Married has such...

    Ten years down a rabbit hole of hurt,

    lies, and selfishness. Love for each other is and was undeniable.... But I ask my self was it true? Was it real? Because my gut tells me different from my heart and I can be loved more in depth then what I am and was.I compare cheating to hanging up the phone on someone; it is...

    I just found out my wife is leaving me

    for a woman. Are you serious. I have literally never been in this much emotional pain in my life. I feel like just locking myself in a room and crying for days. But I also feel so numb to everything around me. This has literally broke me

    To err once is human

    but twice is careless. So you might be able to imagine how it feels to be told your second marriage is over. I was so determined to keep the marriage together but I also made mistakes. I was given a Hobson's choice six years ago- follow "me and your child" to another part of...
