Hi everyone, You've all been great over the years; supportive, friendly, understanding. I'm not much of one to publicly vent but in my current situation I don't really have anyone to talk to, so I figured I'd put it up here and just ask that if you read you send out a positive thought into the universe for me. My wife and I, after ten years, have split. We're still best friends, but she's determined she no longer wants to be married, that she wants to take time to find out who she really is and that means she needs to disconnect from a partner. I can't say I understand, but I support her in her endevour. We've talked a great deal about it for a year now, and she finally dropped the news on me. We'll tell the kids and families after the holidays. Needless to say I'm deeply saddened. She's the love of my life, much more than that really, and we're now going to be designated as friends only, and that breaks my heart into a million pieces. I know many of you have been through something not dissimilar. My heart goes out to anyone who's been here. I appreciate all the support, and I thank you for letting me comment. It hurts now, but as per usual time and faith and hard work will heal all things. To the future, and happy holidays (Merry Christmas!) to you all.
