My husband & I had been together for almost 11 years, married almost 8. We have a 10 year old son & an 8 year daughter together. We had really great times & did a lot of stuff as a family & together. More good than bad I would say. Family vacations, outtings, dinner at the table, church. And we had good alone time together too. We owned our home & both had good jobs. Last year he bailed on a family vacation & made some lame excuses. It felt so out of the ordinary to me I knew something was wrong. I went on the trip with the kids anyway cause we had all the plans already. I had a badfeeling in my gut the whole time. When the kids & I came back he was very distant with me & the kids. He stopped talking to me. Then he texted me & said that he wasnt happy & we were over & to find somebody to buy our house so we could both go our seperate ways. I was crushed. || He continued to stay in the house, but started packing his stuff & slept on the couch. He was barely home & when he was he was on his phone (which he now kept locked) I questioned him a few times but he wouldnt talk to me. Then one day I got a text from him that said he met someone else & they were falling for each other. She made him feel special & he liked that. He said I was boring & he didn’t want me around anymore. One night, he must have fell asleep while talking to her cause the phone was on the floor by the couch like it fell out of his hand & the lock was off his phone (probably got tired of unlocking it every time the screen went off). I looked in it & found messages. He was seeing this girl Nickie or Nikki however she spells it. When he had excuses about work he was with her. She’s a bartender in one of the crappiest bars in town on the shittiest side of town. She also knew he was married & didn’t care. She told him to check my kids ¬ let them get out of line & that he should fight me for custody. He was telling her how he loved to be with her & blah blah blah. They talked about moving in together. But obviously this wasnt her first married man because one message she told him to make sure his phone was locked so I didn’t get it & start texting her like a wife did before. She also said she doesn’t care if a man is married just be upfront with it. || Well, fast forward till now…I moved out & he’s still at the house & was barely seeing the kids & I was adjusting them to that. Me and my kids went to see a therapist & were starting to get over the sadness so much. Now he tries to come around & tells me he misses me & the kids & he never had anyone make him feel how I had. Turns out that this woman started talking to another married man & he didn’t want to share her and also she’s apparently separated but still lives with her husband. And no I have not gone the stupid route & taken him back. Oh & if you want your taxes done go to (removed) New Castle because she apparently does taxes as well lol!
