So he was served D papers this past Thursday. We talked about some things--he mentioned legal separation so he can keep medical insurance, then said I could stay in house until kids graduate from HS in 4 years, etc.
Thinking back over our marriage, he truly was not there for us, only when it was convenient for him. He always thought of himself, going out with friends, going on his vacations, etc. I truly felt like a single parent, taking the kids wherever they needed to be.
I am thinking that we will NOT have family gatherings with our grand kids someday (I know, my kids are still young), growing old together, taking care of me going through a potential health scare right now, and just plain old, being alone for the rest of my life! I really don't have immediate family left; both of my parents have passed on as well as my brothers. I have friends-mostly married though. My family is my 2 kids, him and his family.
Is this just normal?? Me: BW. 40's
Him: WH POS. 40's
2 kids. DD16, DS14
Don't let my user name fool you...I am NOT hopeful for us at ALL!!
