I was married to my husband for 5 years and together for 6. We have 3 small children together. He always told me about his ex whom he says treated him very badly. I had no choice but to believe everything he told me because we live in Missouri and she moved back to her home state of Michigan. Well, back in July, we took a family vacation to Michigan to visit some of my husband’s family up there. Something kept telling me that we shouldn’t go, but I gave in because his grandmother was dying and I knew he’d never get to see her again. We arrived on July 25th. On July 27th, my husband said he was going out with his cousin for the evening and left me and the kids at his uncle’s house for the night……he came back at 4 in the morning. Later that morning, he told me he had been out with a girl (he didn’t say it was his ex) and had rented a motel room. He showed me the receipt. His grandmother passed away the next day. I told his whole family in Michigan what had happened and to my horror, they already knew he was going to do it! We came back to Missouri on August 3rd. || A few days later on August 11th (my 30th birthday) I came home from my sister’s house to find him drunk and texting his ex about me! He got mad that I read his texts and pulled my arm so hard that I have 2 strained ligaments in my arm and rotator cup. He swore up and down that they were just friends and nothing sexual was ever said. I asked her to be my friend on Facebook if she was just friends with my husband, then that would be no problem. She told my husband about it and he got upset. She never accepted my request either. I guess her boyfriend (and babies’ father) found out about her texts to my husband so he took her phone away. My husband got mad at me because she got caught by her boyfriend! || He started drinking heavily again and on August 24th, he tried attacking me again. I left him and on August 30th, HE filed a divorce against ME! The sad part is I have a severe heart problem that has left me with a defibrillator implanted in my chest just to keep me from going into cardiac arrest. During the first week of September, he confessed that it was his ex that he slept with in Michigan. She’s continuing to live her life just fine and dandy while I’m sitting here crying all day, every day wondering what I did wrong. She was fully aware that we were married and still she acted like the big whore and slut she is. She has no pride or self-respect!
