      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Wife wants divorce

Recommended Posts

My mom passed away last Aug 2016. I spent the last few weeks of her life at her bed side praying and holding her hand. She was in a coma so my cries were in vain. I was there with her when she took her last breath. She was a good momma and my heart was broken. My brother preceded her 18 yrs before and she had never gotten over it. So a month with no sleep and not alot if food and even tho we lived in the same town I didn't go home very much. I suffered from a horrible grief that affected me in a way that was very noticeble. My way and kids resented me and began to tell me to get over it and move on. I hid away and grieved by myself. My wife then told me I had abandoned my family to be with mom that month. Told me o had neglected them. The guilt was immense. So 9 months after mom she wants a divorce. She never worked I had supported us. She wants me to move out but pay her bills and she has got my teenage daughters agreeing with her. I can't comprehend how this is logical to them. But maybe it is and I'm crazy. I am getting back to myself but still have very hard days. I have done it on my own with plenty of criticism. I tried to tell myself they don't understand so they don't mean to leave me when I need them the most. I have even took out my pistol and thought what if. But I'm just tired of the hurt. What should I do?

I am so sorry about the loss of your mother and the difficulty with your wife. I suggest you seek counseling for yourself to help you sort through all of this. I don't know what to say about your wife. It doesn't sound like she is a very nice or supportive person. I'm sure your children love you but are confused. Have you tried to express to them what you are going through? Do you talk about this at all with anyone? Sometimes, people do hateful things because they are hurt and confused. 

We will be with you,
