I haven't been on Mothering in a while, but I think I'm going to need the support of this forum again. Dh and I have been married since Sept 2004, and we are now going through a divorce. Dh has been on MANY dating sites since 3 months into our marriage, but took it to a whole other level last Nov. He posted naked pics of himself on Craigslist looking for a "lunch special" as he titled it. I agreed after much coersion from our church to try to work it out yet again. But I just couldn't get over it and it has been eating at me since then. He was still the cocky disrespectful non-loving person he was before and I had just had it. So I found a lawyer and using the money I received from donating my eggs, I put a retainer down and filed for divorce on May 4th and he will be served the divorce complaint, custody/support, and status quo motions this next week. I told him I wanted a divorce a couple of weeks before that so he knows its coming, just not when. He completely emptied our joint checking and savings and left me with $50 only. He has given me $140 to take care of the kids over the course of 1.5 months. He is constantly begging for sex, and is now trying to act like he cares about me and the kids despite him not helping take care of them. I know it is just a tactic because he is scared crap less because he knows I've thrown my hands up about it once and for all.
Anyways, thats the long story short. I'm at peace and happy with my decision, and am looking to restart my life and be happy again.
I hope you all don't mind me joining you all, because even though I'm at peace now, I'm sure there will be bumps and mountains I will need to overcome in the coming months.
