Wow, 7 months and 5 days after I found the incriminating phone records, it is all over. I was a good wife. I am a great mom. I am smart, funny, loyal, kind, and generous*. I am good with money, and I have a respectable job in my field. We have two honors students teens that are well adjusted. He threw away this charmed life, his loving wife, the respect of his children, and more than half of his assets for some skanky whores. I hope he cries into his lonely pillow nightly and that his house reeks of shame and lies.
I tried R. He could not stop lying and raged against me. I am glad I tried though, because I will never have to wonder if I did the right thing, if I walked away too soon. It gave him four more months to show me how messed up he is.
Thanks for all the support, SI friends.

Congratulations on losing all of that useless weight! I think you'll be amazed to see what you can do without all of that wasted flesh holding you back.

I could have written every word. I just know that you are going to thrive once the initial shock wears off. We put so much energy and focus into these men who are fundamentally absent, selfish and immature.

Am I the only one thinking that I have a childish opinion of fidelity? Of course this is enough for an affair!

bad hair days are a bitch!
I recommend a good afternoon at a nice salon to help with those
But that's just a lot of water
Underneath a bridge I burned
And there's no use in backtracking
Around corners I have turned
