  7. Husband with Cancer wants Divorce

    Going Through Divorce or Separation
    Hi, All! I will try to be as concise as possible summing up nearly 15 years of marriage. Eight months into our marriage, my husband wrote me a letter asking if I was doing the "best I could do." I was working full time, but he was upset about me not doing the housework. He said he wanted...

  12. 20yr marriage, soulmates, EA, and now a TUMOR

    Coping with Infidelity
    Bullet points, because they help me to not be so verbose: June: Husband said things to OW like “you’re my #1 fan”, “when you’re hurting it feels like it’s happening to me”, “that’s what I love about you” which devastated me because there were many problems I toughed out for 20 years (financial...
