How Many Here Talked About ?A show of hand, how many here talked about getting a divorce, contemplated on it, and finally did it? How long did the divorce dance took place? We have been talking about separations and divorce for over 2 years now. Still no actions. Before, it's she wanting to separate and I don't. Now, it's me wanting to and she is content with the loveless marriage. Still dancing after all these years. I think the music finally stopped for me. Am I alone?
After posting this story, I finally got enough courage to ask again for a divorce. This time with full intentions to follow through with it. I have no plans. All I have is I know I can survive without her. The pains she had caused me are so painful, it's numb to the touch. For 5 years, I gave and she took. My inner core tells me Family come first. Must keep family unit as a whole. Suck up the miseries and one day it will be better. I've been chasing the Happily thereafter Rainbow. Trying to beat the odds of not being a statistic. Well, I am a statistic now. Married for 24yrs, age 48, male, two kids, one adult (f), one teenager (m), Self-employed, asset $1.5mil. Reason of divorce: Ir-irreconcilable differences. Requesting full custody of the child. Asset split 50/50, Liabilities: assume all. The dark clouds are giving way to a big bright Sun. The rainbow is slowly fading. It's time to venture out and enjoy the Sun, on my own. My soul are fully exposed, hope I will not get burn this time around.
