Was sent a message by text that we were seperating.

I found a text on his phone from OW so I confronted him about it, I didnt scream or shout, I asked why? Everything he came back with was either petty and or a lie, it was like he was convincing himself that he had valid reasons for his infidelity.

I just cried the rest of the night, he got up the following day to go to work, I told him it was either me or her.

When he got to work he text me to say he was going to stay at a friends for a couple of days

He then text me after a couple of days and said we were seperating, I did suggest marriage guidance as 16 yrs married and 20 years together was a lot to throw away.

I have loved him all those years, through good times and bad, stood by him, been loyal to him, and that is how he has treated me.

I Ended up going to counselling because I was so confused, I wondered what I had done to deserve this kind of treatment, but she has finally convinced me that the problem was his not mine and the reason he has not been in contact is because he knows I didnt deserve it and that he is a coward for not facing up to the pain he has caused.

There is nothing more cowardly than what you've described. I'm so sorry, it makes healing so much more difficult when they cut and run.

How are you holding up? Are you able to eat, sleep? Have you seen an atty. You really need to protect whatever assets you have, and if your are having health issues - you want temporary orders for support.

I got it over text too. It's an example of WS' s cowardice.

XWW didn't didn't show any emotion at all. In the following days to D she never did. Everything was about her. 3 years later it I still is.

Sorry you got the same classless treatment. No one deserves that.

Thank you, I am very slowly getting there. He sent me a text last week asking for a telephone number that he could have found on the internet. My counsellor said it may be his way of contacting me. Well I am afraid I didnt reply. If he wants to talk to me, he knows where I am. But I know now I would not have him back, the trust has most definately gone. I am getting checked next week for any STDs because I do not think he would have used protection.

Good for you for not replying. The next reply he gets from you should be having D papers served to him. Please go find a lawyer early next week and get the process started. And you're going to have to tell your children thank goodness they are essentially adults. (((hugs)))

What an absolute coward. A sickening, spineless excuse for a man.

I cease to be amazed at how these creatures from hell can pretend to be human for so long before their true nature shows. To be a husband for so many years before making it known that he has about as much maturity as a preteen boy? Amazing.


(((wastoosoft)) His actions made it clear that you're not losing anything worth having. OW "won" a brand new (to her) piece of trash.

Thank you all, I really appreciate your comments. Our son knows about it all, but in the end its his Dad and I dont say much about this to him. He will slowly learn the hard way what is Dad is all about (He has already let him down a couple of times, at the moment he is accepting his excuses, but eventually he wont) So any distancing between his Dad and him will at least not be my doing, his Dad will do it all on his own, going by what he has been like with his daughter from his previous marriage.

We had both been married before, I have a daughter 28 from my previous marriage who lived with us and of course she saw him as her Dad. She left many years ago and lives with her boyfriend. She knows everything too.

His daughter I have talked to a couple of times on the computer but only to see how she is (I can do that now) He wouldnt send her birthday cards or anything even though I went out and bought them. So now I can keep contact with her and send her birthday cards and things, its good for my son to keep contact with his sisters.

So as you can see he does not have a good record for keeping in contact with his children

I'm really sorry. That is cowardly, yes.

I never even heard the truth from STBXH, I had to learn it from OW herself.

And STBXH here snuck out of our house in the middle of the night, was allowed back and did it again. Then stomped out two more times.

I'm not trying to one- up or anything, just to say there's a coward here too.

There was one day before I knew of OW but he had gone where he drove straight by me without stopping, in the pouring rain, as if he didn't even know me.

They do such bizarre things to people they've known for so long, it's just not stuff I can relate to.

And I am finding texting gets out of hand and even email, where people are using it for things that are just too important and should be said face to face. Do you know what I mean?

STBXH here also has no real remorse and when questioned, plays the self-pity cards and yes, tries to make what he did valid. He wants a future with OW, who knew he was M and thinks this is a good kind of person.

I hope you will be ok.

I'm sorry for your hard time.

DITTO

Why waste another second of your life with a low life like that. He is not even acting human.

Word. He is a jackass.

wastoosoft posted 5/5/2013 04:29 AM

Yes that is the way I am feeling about him at the moment, he is most definately not the man I thought he was and quite a few people around are amazed at how he is treating me.

I did during my lowest hours ask my family what was so wrong with me, what did I do so wrong to deserve this (because family is where you get the honesty) and they said that I was one of the easiest people they know to live with and they would never have a problem with me living with them (which is always nice to know, although I wouldnt take them up on it)
