Im newly Divorced and scared to death to be on my own. I got Married at age 19 teen and always had my husband and children around (I value family) MY EX turns 50 and decides he wants out .Out ..out of what I thought .He said he could not handle being older and being a Grandpa ...so he dove off the deep end .I pray for him that he comes back and will himself again..he is so unhappy.
I don't pretend to know what makes people do things like this. What I do know is that decisions like this are selfish, self-indulgent choices at the very best. You need to know this: You are NOT alone. 1st and foremost, your God is with you. 2nd, you have everyone on this site in your corner. 3rd, there are millions of people who have gone through this, are going through it, or will travel the same road. And, divorce in later life is not as rare as it used to be.
I was married at age 19 and have been married for 43 years. My husband left me a year ago for another woman, but claimed it was because he had been miserable with me for 15 years (Not true).
Have you joined any divorce recovery groups? If not, please consider doing that. You can link up with women in your area and those connections can be most helpful as you begin your new life. Rebuilder's is a national program. DivorceCare is a faith-based program. And, I'm sure that there are others. How long have you been divorced? Are your children nearby?
I'm here for you, as are the rest of the Late-Life Divorce members. Just write in a talk to us.
