To be left after almost 30 years of marriage are changing event. Here you can read about my experience of separation and divorce. Divorce / separation, it was something that did not exist in my world of thought. We had been married almost 30 years, a good marriage, fine, well-behaved children, etc.. Sure, we had our arguments, but differ where the road was long, I thought.
A dark, rainy autumn day my husband wanted to talk to me. We took a walk and he told me that he wanted a divorce. I thought he was pulling my leg, but was soon clear to me that he was serious. It was as if someone stuck a knife in my stomach and twisted it. The pain I experienced when I can not describe with words. Everything was chaos. How could it be with the kids? How would my future life look like, house, friends, well, everything spun. We went home. I could not be home but went to a couple of good friends. Just need to talk to someone. I felt like I would suffocate.
Everything went very quickly. After a month he had acquired an apartment and moved. Christmas was approaching, everything was a mess. Not until much later I realized that I lived in a state of shock. I was very creative. Tweaked with everything. For me it was good to have a job to go to.
I contacted the church family, where I had to come and talk to a wonderful woman. She made me realize that my life would go on. Something that I value very much where my closest friends. They called on a regular basis, did things with me. I wanted to "dwell on" the separation of them, I could do it, but I wanted to talk about something else was even okay. I felt so bad, so I could not call, but my friends did.
Today, three years later, me and my husband live together again. I got my ex back after realizing that also I had to change. This is what I did.
