Loss of a 24 year marriage.

by Dianna
(Neosho, Mo.)

My husband of 24 years left me for another woman, I have lost my husband, house and even grandchildren from my stepdaughter to this new woman!

I am so crushed and alone inside; I just did not see this coming. Why? Why do the people you have taken care of for years (stepdaughter) turn on you when all you ever have done is give to them? Take care of them love them. She still calls me Mom and says she loves me but has only spoken to me one time in 5 months.

My son will not let me keep my grandchildren (from him) because I am not emotionally stable yet, so I feel like I am paying for what has been done to me over and over and keep wanting to know what I did wrong? What I did'nt do?

The children are used to staying with me all the time and now they're all so hurt and don't understand, and lost there NaNa and PaPa both. I feel more sorry for the children than I do myself and do not understand anymore than they do! Top all that off, I still love him and miss his with all my heart!

I am so sorry for your loss. I know how you feel. Even though I am the one that left my husband of almost 30 years. He was shocked and did not think we had a problem. I had been telling him over and over that I could not take his abuse. I finally left and when I did I lost everything.

I loved my in laws dearly but that whole family was mad at me now. How could I do that to their wonderful son, cousin, uncle, etc. It hurt me very much to leave, it was like ripping my heart out. But I had to go for my sanity.

My daughter has been upset with me since. She still thinks I left for another man and could not believe her father was not perfect. I finally met another man after her father remarried. He had someone within 6 months yet I was the one running around. Right.

My relationship with my daughter will never be the same. She was married and did not live with us so she did not see the abuse. My son did and he accepted that I had to leave. My husband told my son he had one parent now and that was me. My son was just 15. Men can be so unfeeling sometimes.
