I'm Getting a Divorce

December 20th, 2011 at 04:59 am

So, over the past few months or maybe years, my marriage has been failing. My husband doesn't seem to think so, but then he is not the one who is mentally and emotionally abused.

Me and my kids have put up with so much, not to go into details, cause he is who he is. He just isn't right for me where I am at in my life.

I have been trying to get through the Holidays, but they are not leaving good impressions on my kids. I work very hard at keeping the peace and looking happy, so that my kids will have a Merry Christmas.

But, enough is enough. I am getting a divorce. I haven't seen an attorney yet. Not sure how I am gonna pay for it, and I am going to have to get another part-time job to make up the little difference I need financially to make it on my own, again.

I did send out a resume last night for an Administrative position right here in my own town and hoping that I will get a call this week.

Of course, it puts a damper on my debt, cause I will probably have to charge the divorce, but it shouldn't cost as much as most, because everything is pretty much set in stone. I get my stuff, he gets his. My kids are not his, so no problem there.

My husband is going to cry and beg me for him to stay and promise that he will change. I really don't want anyone to change for me. If there is to be change, he needs to do it for himself.

I will keep everyone updated. Plenty of prayers needed my way. I need a job and strength, but I have great faith that this is what I need to do.

    No one should have to endure mental or emotional abuse. I'm sending positive thoughts your way.

    Sorry to hear but completely understand. When I divorced my 2nd husband I got the paperwork from the courthouse and filed it myself. Since there weren't any kids from the marriage and he took his stuff, it was a quick cheap way to do it. Maybe you can do the same.

    I am sorry. It is always sad when a marriage implodes, but you have to look out for your safety and your emotional well-being and of course, your children. Has the husband gone to any kind of anger management counseling? Sounds like he needs it, either way.
