              Because of the title. No mention of the dogs. He wanted us to believe he was yearning for his wife and then get stunned when we realize its nothing like that. He could have written,

              My wife left me and took my favorite pair of slippers.

                So, the thread title does not need the whole story. Do you, actually know him in real life, or are you just saying that to be fascetious?
                Having your spouse leave you is no joke. With or without dogs.

      am sorry about this. Seldom wife left a man if he loves him. And if the man is responsible and faithful enough. So theirs no reason to leave you. Maybe you need to reflect a little on this and maybe try to win her back.

        rednckwmnposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Oh beautyrose, that would be nice if it were true. I personaly know women who have left thier husbands for lots of different reasons, but none of them had to do with lack of love on the mans part. Some women really are not nice, sometimes it is the woman who is not faithful, or not responsable.

    You know, there might be some precedence for suing for pet-custody - in fact, I'm pretty sure I've read about some celebrity or other doing that?  If you had the dogs before you met her, you've probably got a case.  I'm not a lawyer, though.  If you know where to find them, that is.  Good luck - its a real bad scene, I can relate.

    My husband has my cats. And I have to say - I really miss them, especially one in particular. More so since April, when I was in the UK. The first moment I laid eyes on them, I knew one of them was desperately ill.

    I took her straight to the vets. She was euthanised, acute kidney failure. I was both heartbroken and cross.

    So, I undestand how you may feel ima - and I hope time helps you feel the blow a little less.

    I've learned in my psychology classes over the years that sometimes we really miss something else....and the dogs or whatever take the symbolic replacement of what we really miss. Perhaps you miss something else entirely? like having a companion around, having the familiarity of a spouse, the lifestyle you once shared, the friends you guys hung out with....

                  HEY, I used to work at the St. Louis ARC...  Very cool.  Worked in an independent home with two developmentally disabled women.  They were lucky with their living situation, not a huge group home scenario.  Did that for a while, too.  smile

                  No phone number...  sad

                    I worked with two guys.  We are meant for each other.

      you are funny..... if i were you i would have a rest from females, if this is really you on the picture,me thinks you wont be alone for long....... everyone is struggling for money at the moment, so that is not too big of an issue, and you could get a smaller house, and well just enjoy life could you do that without the dogs?????

        You're not a bad looking guy...you just need to calm your hair down a bit, wink.

        Trade down your house in St. Louis for something affordable (hell, I am looking for real estate in MO..the market is incredible), and jobs are not that hard to get if you've had one or two already.  smile

        All is not lost.  Sometimes relationships are over rated.  There are other people out there.

    I never thought you were female...

    They usually always have names that include glitter, glimmer, pretty, sparkly, and they have avatars with their faces or fairies and that sort of thing.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Regardless of the reason it's probably very difficult for you. Take care/be good to yourself & I believe you'll heal quickly (although I don't know if this is a permanent arrangement or if you'll work things out & reconcile???) Regardless - it'll be sore for a little while but bruises fade (i'm sure you know - nothing new, but sometimes it's nice to be reminded, right?)

    Again, I'm truly sorry.

    p.s. hope you get visitation/ joint custody for your dogs - i'm a dog lover - that would really hurt!

    Perhaps it is temporary.  This economy has been hitting a lot of people the hard way.  Lots of problems over finances.  Things will usually get better once you find a job again.
