I'm getting divorced.

TexasBrat TexasBrat
Well, after 10+ yrs of marriage, I finally accepted that my husband just doesn't care for us as us anymore. Long story short, he stopped talking to me, and thought that I put everything out on social networks (which I don't do). I will be 40 in May, & I have my daughter to think about too. I start the filing process tomorrow. We split in the middle of September. I'm very happy with this decision. My daughter & I moved, and are completely settled in. I'm very much looking forward to our new lives.
I just wanted y'all to know that all this personal drama is the reason for my absence. I hope to be on here more now.
Happy New Year!

As a divorcee of a near-ten year marriage that I ended, I offer you my congratulations for losing that millstone around your neck. The freedom is worth losing the loser, honey.

Thank you very much. I appreciate that a lot. And you're absolutely right!

So sorry. I wish you well.
My own experience with divorce was absolutely awful. I hope that you find peace and happiness.

Thanks. I'm keeping my daughter out of this as much as possible. She's a kid & doesn't need to be wrapped up in adult drama. Though, I did find out from my husband's friend, that my soon to be ex was actually expecting this a year ago. Talk about a blow to the ego & pissing me off. If I'd known that, all this would've been done by now. He just wanted me around so he didn't have to pay bills. I went to the court house today to start the process. Oh fun. I'm trying to think positive, & stay positive for me & for her. I feel better already. I don't feel like eating all the time, & I've already lost some weight-other than his 200lbs of dead weight that is! LOL

Congrats on feeling better and staying positive. I wish you and your daughter the best of luck!!!! I am sorry that it had to be drug out though when it could have been done and over with a year ago. I just don't get why "men" and I use that term lightly can't go and file or say "Hey, I am done I don't want this anymore." They leave it to the women to deal with it all.

I think he did what he did so HE wouldn't look like the bad guy. Thanks! I know I deserve to be treated better & that I need to be a good role model for our daughter. Being miserable is no way to live & staying together for the kids is just a form of self-torture with no benefit to anyone, including the child.

My heart goes out to you and your daughter!! This is a very difficult decision you had to make and will not be easy but I am going through this as well--my daughter is grown and married but was staying with us through the holidays. She has found her own place and is settled with her husband. I just left mine a couple days ago and am feeling...emotional.

Good luck, I am so glad to hear your decision is happier for your family and if you need to vent, talk or just get things out let me know--I always answer my messages!!

I just saw this.

I'm sorry you had to go through hard times, but it looks like things will be getting better for you and your child.

Good luck to you and Blessings. When it feels like a relief to finally end a relationship, you KNOW it was the best thing to do.

All the best for your new future.
