I have been married for almost 20 years to my high school sweetheart. He gave me the ILYBINILWY speech and left five months ago. I firmly believe it is part of a mid-life crisis. We talk now only about our son, finances, etc. I know it sounds crazy as much as I have been hurt, but I really miss him as a part of my life. Is it possible after divorce to stay friends in any way? I just can't imagine him being completely out of my life, even as a friend. :(

Depends on what is going on with the divorce, etc.

My husband and I just decided to separate after he admitted some issues (no cheating but...lying)...however, we are still friends now. It's complicated but it works for us.

I don't know what to say about your situation. Did he leave for another woman?

Some can and some can't. It depends on the person as much as what went on before, during and after the break up.

I personally cannot and will not ever be friends and I will do my best to keep that promise. Good luck to you, though.

I do believe that there was someone else, yes. He is already dating someone even though he claims they are "just friends".

More than likely he left you for someone else and did not have the balls to tell you.

You only talk about business stuff. I personally would not be more than civil. No friendliness, no jokes, etc. Don't let him play you like that.

I'm sorry you are in pain.
