My husband came home from work today and instantly started in on me about being distant. Well, I'd had it and I told him..."Look, you just got home, can I have 10 minutes before you start nagging me?" Well, he must have changed a little over the last two years because he then stated that if I didn't want to be in a relationship with him, that I needed to say so. So, I SAID SO!! I also told him about all my fears about him being an a$$ and running off with the kids and that is the reason why I hadn't said something earlier....He agreed that he wouldn't do it again and that we would try our best to get along for the childrens sake and that we would share them. I about dropped the frying pan I was cooking with! I can't believe it was just that easy. And now it's done! I'm so amazed. Now, I just HOPE AND PRAY that he doesn't revert back to his old ways!!! I feel so relieved!! And I think that I'm actually a little happy. Does that sound horrible or what? I'm happy to be getting a divorce! There's something wrong with me! I don't care though. Marriage HAS to be better than this, life has to be better than this. I think this has taken a huge load off of everyone's shoulders, including the kids! We told the kids that he would be moving out and they are taking it surprisingly well (I think they seen it coming)! I'm so happy... Thank you all for your kind words and support on my other discussion! I really appreciate it. I was feeling like I was losing my mind and just going crazy and the responses really helped me put the situation "in order" so I could figure out what was best. Thank you all so much! HUGS!!!

WOW, I am amazed by you. You are a very strong woman and I commend you. I am glad that you finally feel a bit of happiness, I am sure you deserve it. There are just some people, that no matter how hard you try, you just can't get along with. He must be one of them. It sounds like you both will be better off in the end. I wish you well both with your children and your future. You deserve a happy, fulfilling life.

Steph Sweetie I am so happy for you and it is the best Solution as you will only ruin your Life. I am glad he sees sense more then what my Ex did He put me through hell even though he knew how sick I was and how many bad attacks he caused and I think if it was not for my Kids using their common Sense in sorting me out with these attacks I would not be here today as it would have killed me My Daughter was 14 my Son 17 and he was working away from Home so she had a lot to deal with including telling her once not to help me that I just wanted to die, that I wanted it over with and no more Pain. She ran to my Friends and they came over and sorted me So I am so happy for you that this is going smooth so far and I hope and Pray that it stays this way Love and Hugs to you

Thank You! I'm glad he's being sensible this time instead of his usual jackass self, lol. It's about time he's finally realized that the way he's always been probably wasn't the "right" way. I think this is what's best for everyone involved! Thank so much for the response! Have a great day!

I am happy that you have finally been able to get it off your chest. I hope you will be happy with the decision you are making. I am sure the children could see this coming if you two were never getting along. Good luck with everything.

Well, I guess I should say good for you. I am glad that things are working out for you. I have been thru a divorce (although with no kids) and it was hard, but it was also for the best. I don't think you're horrible for being happy. When you are in such an unhappy place in your life, change is good. Any sort of change even if that means a major upheaval such as a divorce. Good luck and if you need anything, please message me.
