    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...

    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?!

    Why Do I Keep Going Back To Him.

    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...

    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!
