Saying goodbye - DH and I calling it quits - His kids won
So everything came to a head last night and divorce is no longer just talk. In fact, he has already taken money out of our account and opened a new one.
What it came down to... he said that I can't accept his kids. I told him that was not true. I can and do accept his kids, but just don't want to be around them all the time. Well, that doesn't work for him as he stated to me he wanted a wife that would be fully engaged with his kids and love them, etc. He even said that I wasn't "kid-friendly." I'll have to remember to put that on my resume next time.
So to all of you stepmoms and stepdads who go through the crap and the drama everyday like I did, I wish all of you guys/gals the best. And even though this really, really hurts right now... it is probably the best for everyone concerned. It's like ripping off a band-aid. It's gonna hurt and sting for a while, but it will get better. No matter what decisions you all decide to make for yourselves and your futures, remember that life is too short to be unhappy.
Take care everyone.
