  • Dear Taffy. I am the one who filed for divorce after 3 years of trying to fix things. Sometimes, we get to a point where we say “Enough is enough!” for whatever reason. But the truth is, you are where you are right now and all of the regret and sorrow and bad choices are done. The more we obsess about mistakes we made or wrong decisions we made,…[Read more]

    • Hi FriskyRidgewood, How beautiful and inspiring it was to speak to you yesterday. Today has been a tough day for me. Crying off and on I seen a response on messenger my wasband told a young lady he is engaged to be married. No SUPRISE before he moved out on 2/14/22 and we signed the divorce papers at the lawyers office on 3/24/22 he adamantly told…[Read more]

  • Dearest Celia,
    First of all, welcome to our community. You will find comfort, support, wisdom, and care here.
    Your list of relationship expectations should be in any book about what a good, strong, happy marriage looks like. That’s the kind of marriage we all desire and deserve. But after about 20 years of doing this, it is clear that some…[Read more]

    Dear Giafields,
    That loneliness is one of the most challenging things about this whole ordeal. In fact, it is almost always listed in the top three issues women face …. Loneliness, children and finances. Losing our couple friends is a huge loss. It was for me because most of our friends were because of his career ….. and his new wife took my…[Read more]

    • Thank you for the support. I am finding this very comforting. I have no divorced friends so it’s nice to connect with people with similar experiences

    • How do I post? I want I tidy everything myself. I just. Don’t know where to do it. I feel like I am deliberately jumping into a fire knowing I am going yo get burned. I am holding on by threads mentally. How do you know your are doing the right thing? It’s been 5 years and I am slipping more into debt the longer I wait to file… then one phone…[Read more]

    Dear Kiki,
    How heartbreaking in so many ways. And the sense of betrayal and deceit can’t get much worse than that. No words can make that go away. Do not focus on anything you cannot change and cannot control and just keep focused on you and your life going forward. We are all here for you. Make sure you log in to the MDRcommunity to access…[Read more]

    Dear Anita,
    I am so sorry about the double whammy of having your wasband being with your ex-best friend. I just don’t see how peoples’ sense of honor or loyalty just is non-existent. Really, what kind of person does that kind of thing? The only good thing is that they deserve each other. Remember that we have to stop obsessing about 1. Things…[Read more]

  • FriskyRidgewood posted a new activity comment 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    That is a great step forward! I know that feeling exactly. So often after divorce, we just remember those times they were charming and agreeable … and forget the times they embarrassed us or made us feel terrible on the way home, or ruined the occasion for every one. That is real progress when you are realistic about how one-sided your…[Read more]
