After 20 years…….gosh…it’s gonna get ugly!

A good friend just called. She was crying and very upset. She could not believe what just happened to her. She could not understand why  .It was her significant other. She always did everything for him. She always supported him. She gave up several key positions in her career just to help advance his. She was always faithful. She was always there. What does he do? He walks up to her one day and says he does not love her anymore. Just like that. No warning. No signs. He claims to be in love with a woman who has 2 children and is currently in the middle of her own divorce. She is 20 years younger. She is involved with a married man. Does she not understand this? Does she not care? Of course my friend is expecting to divorce. She has no choice. She tryed with all her strength to make it work. She was even willing to forgive and forget his affair! They even went to marriage counseling. The counselor said he was too far gone to work out their marriage. So, she is on her own again, after a 20 year committment. She is determined to live on. She is determined to be strong. She is determined to live her life. She knows she has a long journey in front of her, but she also knows she has support. I admire her courage. I admire her spirit. I admire her!

  1. It sounds like the husband is going through a crisis. He is going to regret this later in life. I wish people would be happy in their marriage like I was.

  2. I agree. I think he is making a big mistake. I wish he would snap out of it.

  3. Sounds like my ex. And now his girlfriend is after a year still married to her husband (while still living with my ex all of this time) and they have trust issues. Imagine, both of them cheated on spouses to have an affair and within their own relationship, they have trust issues. Who would have thought it? It has not brought him the happiness he thought he wanted. There have been times he admitted he made the mistake of a lifetime but then they get back together.

    I hope your friend is able to find happiness. It is hard after a lifetime with someone to just start all over. I know. I wish her all the best.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I wish you the best!
