I would never had believed that after 17 years of marriage and three children that it would be over. Ours was a dream marriage that was envied. We did well financially and with humor lived the wonderful happy life - together. We, together, decided that I would take a consulting project 100 miles from the wife and girls and I would have the boy. We talked daily and spent Fri, Sat and Sundays together. We never had any problems with money, decision making, Church matters, children, sex, etc. Finally with her boredom she dove into the Sinful Internet. He played and did all kinds of things on her camera with Soldiers and perverts all over the World. Eventually when I found out she had a Holiday weekend with a few guys 300 miles from our home. This was the weekend she was to have all to herself as I took all the children on a weekend trip to parks, etc. Wife was supposed to calm down from the stress of her job and week of girl children but she elected to have an affair. So it goes...
As I divorced her, we split the two homes and three cars and bills and assets. Within six months I lost my project job and began to fail financially. Eventually, I lost my home and was having difficulty finding a job - at my age. Who wants a man with education, experiences and skills but is having snow around the ears. Anyway, I have gained a bit of weght and looking for my last employment before retirement. I love to work but it is difficult at my age.
Anyway, I am not bitter, just wished this would have happened when I was younger so I would have time to recover financially. Again, so it goes...
I am still happy. I am in good health and still active. I love to visit with my children and am anxious to continue to see them grow. Can you imagine... two daughters and a son, at my age... 13, 11 and 7. I love them all.
I hope you all will be as happy as I am during the rough times. It is a wonderful life... just a bit difficult at times.
OMG! Better you than me having younger kids at this age.
It's such a shock, I know. After 30 years I had to start over, since we'd just moved to TX from IL 4 months earlier. With no girlfriends to cry to & get support from, it was not fun & I gained almost 75# (& on a 5'2" frame, that's NOT a pretty picture!). But time helps, it's now been 7 years, I'm almost down to my normal weight & still here.
Best of luck. Sue
