My husband recently told me that he wants a divorce. We have been married for over 20 years. He dropped the bomb right before Christmas, which was pretty rotten timing for the kids and I. The timing also really sucks because I've been having serious health issues. Many of our friends have said that they really hope that he changes his mind and at first I also hoped for a reconciliation. Now, I don’t want to be with someone who would leave me when I needed him the most. I totally lost respect for him. I have been trying to handle things in a nice way, for the sake of my kids not my ex, but inside I feel very resentful that he can just walk away so easily. I've always tried not to say negative things about my ex to others but it’s getting harder and harder to take the high road. It kills me that he has everything so easy and I am just plain terrified. Sometimes I really wish I believed in karma. :)
Any helpful suggestions or comments out there on how to get through this disaster in one piece would be greatly appreciated!
