Well done, Tussin. However, I would hope married couples spend sufficient time getting to know each other before marriage, so they do not have to go through trials and tribulations in order to find out how their spouse will behave under pressure.
Thank you for sharing. I am wondering if most people have a harder time in the first few years. Glad you're still in love :)
Did he actually think he was living a fairy tale...or was that just you? :0)
@ cj I think it was just me... lol
CC: Do you have a theory on why young women believe in a "Fairy-tale" marriage?
Yes agreed mine too.
It probably depends on how long the couple knew each other before being married, and whether they lived together. For some people the first year of marriage could be the ninth year of being a couple.
@tussin - that is probably very true. We only knew each other just under 4 mos. when we married and I have to admit, I didn't even know he had a temper. We had a lot to learn that first year.
Sounds like you got the best part...the kids.
I thought so...and so did my children. :0)
My husband was Married before we too have custody of our two boys It is so crazy how a mother can make such poor decisions concerning the life they are preparing for the children.. Good for you CJ
Thanks, CCurry. The problem was that my ex was so absorbed in her own life and with her own wants and needs that she didn't seem to have time to nurture our marriage or our children. The pain she caused I richly deserved...but the wee ones did not.
I am very impressed that you have been able to move on from something so painful. I appreciate that you took the time to share. I do hope that things continue to get more joyful for you!
Thank you so much. Happy New Year!
That really sucks, Jeff. You deserve better than that. I am awefully sleepy right now and do not recall off hand, but did you have any children with her? If so, how is that working out?
JThomp42, That must have been extremely hard, glad you moved on. Did you read my hub: "Love is gone, but not forever"?
Hey CJ, Thank you. No, no children.
Hey lupine, Thank you. I'll have to read that. Thanks again.
