We were married for 13 yrs… we were together for 16 years. How did she hide this manipulative lying bitch that she has become? Was it always there? Could I have really been so blind for so long?
We had our first court hearing today for the divorce… just a status conference… which is EXACTLY what it sounds like. At least she admitted that she is no longer in the county she filed and is now living out of state. That opens the door for me to change the venue to my home county… that’ll save me a half day of travel if approved.
She was a total Jeckyl and Hyde… At first she sat next to me as we waited for our case to be called, then was this bitch when it was time to talk to the judge, then became sweet as pie again when we discussed visitation after the fact. I don’t know how her brain can keep up with the shifting personalities… This girl really needs help.
I wonder what this guy has on her… she used to be this strong, independent woman… and now its like she needs this POS’s permission to do anything. She goes out of her way for this guy, and he does shit for her. Not that anyone can see anyway. She’s the one always traveling to see him… he never comes to her… she is the one moving out of state to be with him, and willing to give up time with the boys to do it… he’s not giving up anything. She’s leaving family and friends and just assimilating to his life… which, truth be told, is not her lifestyle. He’s a camper, she’s a glamper… he loves the snow, she loves snowglobes! HAHA
This is her choice, and I can’t protect her. All I can do is protect the boys, try to maintain some semblance of a friendly relationship, and when it blows up, and it will, somehow let her know that I am there for her if she wants.
A friend said I was a fool for standing for my marriage and my family… I am not a fool. All I am is a man who knows that marriage and love take work, and that my marriage and family are worth it. I am a man who falls down, sometimes I get knocked down, but I somehow keep finding the strength to stand back up. How long I’m going to be able to do that is a complete unknown… all I know is that right now, I am still able to get up.
