My Divorce Story – By Jimmy:
After finding out about my wife’s affair six months ago and her leaving me two months ago and her buying and then moving into a new house, I finally got to accept that it really was over. I had always said that I wanted her back, but she had no interest. In the last couple of weeks I got to the stage where I was able to “close all the doors” so I could move on. I met up with her on Tuesday to make sure we agreed it was finished – no going back. I thought it was just a formality. When I said that was it – now or never – go or stay – she freaked out. She just cried and cried – what have I done? – I’ve thrown my life away – you mean so much to me – my mother is so upset – etc etc.
She had never faced up to the fact that our marriage was over – too much guilt I think. I couldn’t believe it. After two hours when she would not give a decision she eventually said that it was probably the biggest mistake of her life, but she would not come with me. She went back to her new home. It really shook me up though. I thought that at last I was finding my feet and then the ground starts moving around again.
