Y’all I did it. I asked for a divorce

I’m so sick of my narcissistic WH I got fed up and went off on him & asked for a divorce. I’m so angry right now and I’m sure I’ll fall apart later but I did it!!!!

Strength to you TTR. The right path is the one in which you value yourself. You deserve the best. Keep moving ahead. Good luck.

So proud of you! One day at a time and just keep moving forward. You are a rockstar🌟

you don't have to "ASK" for a divorce -

You either go to the county courthouse and file petition on your own or you get a lawyer to do it for you

the fun comes with the dissolution of $$$ assets

if you can agree - you will save a lot of $$ rather than argue who gets the goldfish

if you don't agree - process just drags on and on and the lawyers get the $$

you get to make the choice on many of the proceedings regardless of who "files"

just start the process and learn as much as you can

If you really want one - you will get it done.

If it was meant as a threat to get him to change, not sure that will work unless the cheater truly believes you will get a D.

Best of luck.

You don’t “ask” your spouse for a divorce.

You “get” a divorce by filing a petition for dissolution of the marriage with the court.

Your spouse doesn’t “give” you a divorce.

You don’t even have to tell them you are filing for divorce.

I never told my XWW I was divorcing her - I simply had my attorney file the petition and that was it.

Your spouse will then have some period of time (something like 20 days, I think) to respond to the petition.

If your spouse fails to respond to the petition in time, then the terms of the divorce will generally be what you initially outlined in the filing.

Don’t “ask” your WH for anything - just do what you need and want to do to get out of his world of infidelity.
