Mine is pretty obvious. Since this is my second marriage with a cheater, my trust is gone and I don't think it will ever return again. Plus everyone shortens it to TG.
M-9 yrs T-11 yrs
4 children-none together
DD#1-9/5/11 LTA 2yrs
DD#2-7/3/12 False R
DD#3-4/29/13 (OW broke NC)
Status: Your guess is as good as mine.

Because I had to keep telling myself to "just breathe." Also, from the song by ANNA NALICK, "Breathe (2 AM)"

That makes a lot more sense than any of my guesses, DWBH.
Yeah, I had no idea what all the acronyms were when I joined... I'm sure most folks think my name is Don Walton, or something like that...

I was thinking they need to teach a class to High School Students and college students about infidelity. Was wondering what they would call it...

I was thinking as a child, sometimes the grass would look all nice. Then walking bare foot you would step into some innocent grass and hit a patch of those round stickers. I called it a prickle patch. As they would get in my feet. I liken this whole ordeal as a big principle patch. Painful and not knowing where to step to get out of it.
sorry post on my tablet

Some things about the nature in my yard, that I will have to leave soon.
Chances are I will ask to change it when I'm in a new place.

My user name, which was too long, was going to be this:
Hope2BeNotVomitingAllTheTime His A made me so sick to my stomach, and vomiting is a normal reaction to me during times of great emotional distress (the death of a person or dog beloved to me, the death of our marriage).
Now, depending on how I'm feeling, it might be something like these:
Hope2B(fill-in the rest)
Sometimes, I'm just Hope.

He was already working out of state, early in our marriage. I was having suspicions, and he planned my all time dream trip to cancun. Took the children. It was a dream come true. And he spent his time chasing and trying to be near or with a young 20 something girl. It was my first real look at seeing it happen right before my eyes. Our kids were 5 and 10. ANd they were also watching. it crushed me.

My WH and I always loved the old justice league cartoons. They had the Wondertwins- a brother and sister that would clink their magic rings together and change shapes to stop the bad guys.
One of them could become anything water related- the other could be any animal. I will demonstrate-
There's a fire. They clink their magic rings and say "Wondertwins- Activate!" One twin says "shape of... A bucket of water" the other days "shape of .... a monkey!" Then the monkey grabs the bucket of water and puts out the flames. Problem solved!
It was our thing. Anytime we had a problem, we would come up with a plan of action. If we both agreed it was a good plan, we would clink our wedding rings and say "Wondertwins - activate!"
Yes... We are nerds. It was one of the reasons we ended up together.
We have done it since before we were married and it has always gotten us through tough times- well, mostly. My wondertwin counterpart stopped clinking rings with me for a bit.
But we are back on track and now... Clinking our rings is what we do when we have just finished a great R conversation and are both ready to step back into real life.
Everyday is a new day, some good, some bad.
Me- BS 39
14 years- 2 middle school children
NC broken from August 6- 24, 2013

It's a play on my name. My name is not even spelled remotely close to "Goo-see" but everyone seems to want to pronounce it that way.
Either "Goose", "Goo-see" or "Gee-see", somehow.
