    My husband and I divorced last year

    My story is rather complicated -

    How was I betrayed in love?

    No, my wife did not cheat on me, as far as I know. I feel betrayed by her lies. Many little lies pertaining to our money and how she spends it. Little amounts and bigger amounts, all unaccounted for. We had a budget that we made together. She has never been able to abide...

    It's been 7 years. She cheated.

    I forgave. She left. Since then I've come to know that she was cheating all our married life. I don't love her anymore. In fact, I rarely think of her, and I've grown to the point where I wish her no harm and have no ill will. However, I do wonder if I'll ever truly be in love...

    Don't get I to a relationship

    if you can't give it your all. Your absolute 100%. Relationships take work. There must be love, trust, honesty, faith, understanding, and loyalty. If you can't do any of that, you're setting yourself up for failure and to hurt the other person.

    I am in love with you.

    But you are no longer in love with me. Yeah, sure you say you love me. But you don't. Haven't been for most of our marriage. Why did you marry me? Why did you have to be with her? You messed everything up- not me- so why am I the one hurting?

    Hurting

    The thought of you touching someone else made me sick. Finding out what you did put me in the hospital. My trust, my heart, my sanity, taken in the blink of an eye. You're more than a cheater, you're a thief.
