Since I have entered the world of the soon to be divorced I have spoken to many women going through the same thing. Their stories have different details but the theme remains the same. Husband leaves wife unexpectedly and usually with little concern as to how she will get by. Husband's focus turns to himself and his needs regardless of who it hurts. Husband is fooling around and takes the bulk of the marital assets. All secrets that were hidden, suddenly come to light in regard to this person you thought you knew. This "man" to whom you gave your heart, your life, and your trust, you come to realize you did not know this person at all.
Since I have begun this journey I have described divorce as a death. Most women I talk with say it is worse then death. I say it is a death but with intent. A new friend said "that would be murder" I thought about that for a while. I agree….it is the intentional "murder" of a family. Very sad, but here we find ourselves and we must continue to live our lives and live it well….
