I am so much happier being divorced mid life. I hear a lot of women say that they will never marry again. Guess I should be glad that I never did! Karen Trent I think it was the best way to have and raise children. But marriage and love are not the same thing and at this point I want the later. It would be easier to leave him if he were abusive or had addiction problems or affairs.
Am I selfish? Getting married young is bad. Often their brains are not fully developed age Divorced after 34 yrs and very happy. I too was tired of putting on the facade that everything was okay! More damaging to grow up with married parents who have no love for each other.. Children learn by example, not words….
Divorce is not the end of world but a new life, new journey, and a new beginning!! Never settle for best with anyone who does not meet your standards!! Those between 50 and 58 watched our parents or Boomer siblings go through all that, but we are not of that generation. The oldest Boomers are 71 and the youngest are 53 this year. Very different type of company kept. I think of myself not as Generation X but as the forgotten sandwich generation, taking care of the end of the Great Generation, the Boomers and the Millennials our children at the same time while the Boomers have entitlement issues… much more than the Millennials.
Nancy Speez Liebson , Boomers go to That being said, even those born in are 52 in , not I think 2nd marriages can be better If the you understand yourself better the 2nd time and what you want snd need in a spouse. I had two 20 yr marriages to two self absorbed men… got married too young to the 1st, rebounded to the 2nd.
Had not experienced a healthy partnership in 40 yrs of marriage. I highly recommend it!! Good for you! As long as there is no deal-breakers for me cheating abuse or lying I will consider myself happily married for life! I actually believe Like is more important than love!

Choices marry or die lol Remember even on the U. I read somewhere that monogomous marriage started in Rome, because it was the only way they could get soldiers to fight- promise them one wife when they returned. Patriarchal society at its finest. She was their mother for christ sake!
And yet being a mother didnt necessarily mean being allowed to be their gaurdian unless the court said so. That happened in the s. Well I avoided Divorce by staying single but there are pluses and minuses to whatever choices you make in life. Been there, done that. Start planning your exit strategy now.
You both deserve better than this. What are you waiting for??!

Heather Hart thank you. Our youngest is autistic and our eldest is dealing with mental health issues. I am so happy on my own. My response? I love the freedom of doing my own thing, not being answerable to anyone for my choices. A great monogamous relationship would be nice now, but he must live close by in his home, me in mine, and get together weekends and a couple days a week. Could I handle full time snoring….
