He told me that I was too upset when Borders closed.
Yep. That's a reason for cheating on me. I was bummed that my favorite chain bookstore closed, and I apparently shouldn't have expressed any emotions or feelings about it. You know, because I cried every night, talked about it incessantly, said we couldn't have sex because I was too sad about Borders...
Yeah, you just can't make this kind of lunacy up.
Six hours a WEEK.
I had a few shows that I enjoyed winding down with in the evening after the kids went to bed. He hated that with a passion-- I was supposed to put the kids to bed, jump into my rubber suit, and play passion palace with him every night, not watch TV!
Sorry, XWH. The TV didn't try to awkwardly grope me and call it foreplay. It was the better companion to have in the evening.
Let me rephrase that: our pound dog that SHE went and chose from the pound, was peeing in the house.
As for loading silverware--EVERYBODY knows the handles face up. Duh.

All work and no play has just cost me my wife--Gary Puckett
D-Day: 9/18/09 D-Day#2: 2/19/10 The Marriage Killer: 6/6/11
Heading for D
Come on, people. We are a society.
I read too much...so shoot me I don't like to watch mindless drivel on tv!
I don't let him talk without interrupting ( only when I am hearing the story for the 50th time when he is drunk...how many times do I have to sit through it?)
But my favourite....
I didn't wash his favourite socks ( yes you read right my 48 year old WH has favourite socks and although he had 20 pairs in his drawer, his favourite weren't clean...oh the horror!)

"My wife took my hobbies away."
He has always hunted, fished, golfed, watched all of the football and nascar that he could. What had him upset was that the gym that he was going to to lift weights went out of business and we had 3 kids all playing baseball and softball on 3 separate teams and it caused him to not be able to play on a church softball team (OW3 kept the books).
I had nothing to do with the gym and softball but it was easier to blame me and use it to justify his affairs.

Corn on the cob. Sheesh.
What kind of crazy person doesn't love corn on the cob??? I would have divorced him just for the corn blasphemy.
Many people do not wash their hands after using the restroom. Plus, our hands are just gross and covered in bacteria. If you put the silverware in with the handles UP, then when you put the dishes away, you don't smear your germs on the portion of the utensil that goes in your mouth (learned that in Epidemiology).
If you put them in with the handles down, you must be sure to put them away by grasping them beneath the part of the utensil that goes in your mouth.
Not that I care one way or the other because I live alone!! YAY!!
Now whenever I bring that up to him, he doesn't "remember" ever saying it and can't believe he did. Just crazy.
At the time,he told me he couldn't chew these things because his teeth were "all messed up." Again..odd..because his teeth were fine..and he was eating other things with no problem.
But I stopped buying bacon..and no more pecans in the brownies.
Then I got over that nonsense and continued buying and cooking both.
It was after dday,though. Because prior to dday,I was turning myself inside out to try and make him happy.
The other day we were at the store,and I jokingly asked if he wanted to get some bacon. He didn't get the joke..so I reminded him that there was a "no bacon" ban in the house a few years ago. And he gave me that classic answer...
"I don't remember that."
ETA: @SisterMilkshake...why the Hell are those men whispering..after they have just shot their deer?? Do they think the animals in the woods didn't hear that gunshot? Really??

..that feeling you get in your stomach, when you heart's broken. It's like all the butterflies just died.
