User Topic: He's packing some of his stuff now

I can hear the activity in the basement. He's packing some of his stuff. We're separated, he moved out, and I know we will divorce, in a few months time. He has secured himself in a new relationship and the beginnings of a new family with his whore. She will move in to his place soon. She has already started moving things in and the baby crib has been assembled.

It still tugs a little at my heartstrings.

What would you think or feel if your mutual friends invited your WS and his/her affair partner over for dinner - while you are still married, but separated?

Bye Bye "friends" is what I would think! Atrocious.

I would feel betrayed but I thought maybe I was expecting too much from friendship.

Do you have a lawyer yet? If not, it sounds like it's time to get to business.

Also, those don't sound like mutual friends. Those are not your friends.

They are not your friends if they invite him and AP.

There are degrees to which you let people back into your life and degrees to which you let them back into your heart-which, of course, are not the same thing

I would not continue to associate with any so called friends who would do that. I know people claim they don't want to take sides, but welcoming the AP with open arms is taking a side.

Keep calm and carry on.

((((Lavender)))) I'm so sorry your "friends" have chosen that path, but as much as it hurts, they've done you a favor by showing you they are not truly friends of yours.

They would no longer be my friends.

I think...therefore, I'm single.

It is what it is.

No more. I'm sorry, FOL. This is coming for me, too, if it hasn't happened without my knowledge already.

People do the shi..... things to each other and I'll never understand why. I hear the words, I read them, I study them, but to understand how people can hurt others so, and knowingly, I do not understand.

I've hemmed and hawed about this too and it's terrible to cut people out of life, but what kind of relationship is it when they are doing stuff of this caliber behind your back?

After my STBX was packing, he was looking for his winter coats. I put those in a trash bag but didn't donate those. I didn't give it to him. I was about to and went upstairs to get the trash bag but he kept yapping with his vitriol.

Because I gave away his clothes, he said, "I don't trust you anymore." Gee, you don't trust me after something as minor as donating your clothes? Do you think I trust you after you repeatedly lie to me, fuck another woman, and start a relationship with her?

First, I would take the friends off my list of friends. I'm also learning who are my friends, and who are not. They frankly don't deserve to be your friend, and you don't need friends like that.

Second, what a statement! He doesn't trust you anymore? Wow! That deserves to be framed to remind you of why you really really are better off without him.

Personally, I think he's lucky you didn't just take his stuff to the curb!

I donated most of his winter clothes about 7 weeks ago when he told me he knocked up his whore and was going to start a new life. There were some items that I had bought him that I couldn't get myself to give away.

^^THIS. I won't have anyone in my life who supports his choices. Not for a second.

I haven't lost any friendships but he has for this very reason. I didn't need to ask them - they didn't do it because they are loyal to me, they did it because he is a douchebag THEY don't want in their lives.

I may have reached a point where I'd piss on him if he was on fire.... eventually!!

"Friends" who would condone the affair by inviting ws and the skank to dinner? Not friends, #1. And showing you who they are (#2). Don't need 'em, wouldn't want 'em. My xh learned who his friends weren't because they didn't like the kind of person he is. You'll feel so much better once his crap is out of the house, FOL. Sad about what could have been but glad because you're going forward without the weight of that man dragging you into HIS abyss.
