I Married the Wrong Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 92 People

    We married after knowing each other

    for a few months. Big mistake. I don't know the person I thought I knew and now we have a family. My thoughts are unclear and this is hunting me. I don't know what to do or where to start.

    I married the wrong person

    and I learned from that mistake. There wasn't anything wrong with her, it's just we weren't a good fit. It took years to realize this and even more years to actually do something about it. Anyways, I'm divorced now and I'm quite happy. I'm not sure how my ex-Wife feels about...

    There once was a man;

    who went by the name “Smitty,” he didn’t have much, but what he did have he held great value for. Smitty had a classic car that he bought brand new, back in a younger and happier time in his life. He loved that car but made a decision one day that he would like to find its...

    It's just too hard to live without love at home.

    .. It drains you, it beats you down, even I've got my children's love, though no spousal love. How do we do it? How do we go on with it?!

    Too Little Too Late

    I always thought that divorce would never be an issue for me because I waited long enough and got married at 28.  I have discovered that I was foolish to believe that.  "I'll try to make a long story short... I met a man that I thought I had so much in common...

    Wrong Person

    I often wonder how do so many people make same mistake of marrying wrong people? The only explanation I have is that we all gotta learn our life lessons and these wrong people are the best teachers for us. I don't want to be with my wrong person anymore, but I can't leave. We...

    Nothing in common at all.

    .. Never assumes responsibility for any thing he has ever done.. He places blame on any one or any thing other than him self and therefore never learns any life lessons.. So frustrating to live with someone so clueless.. WTH!
