I am a 35 year old man who has been married for just under 12 years and has 2 kids.
I have just (2 days ago) told my wife I want to separate.
I genuinely believe I have made the right decision for all concerned, I am doing this for me but also for her, she deserves to be happy. Obviously the implications of this are devistating for all concerned.
ive got to find somewhere to live, am at the very start of this journey and it’s not a very nice one. But one that I brought on myself. I get that.
I am exactly the same situation you are. I asked to divorce after 8 years with a 2 years boy.
I think you never expected how hard it is and to be honest it’s severe to handle it.
The situation gets better if you fully understand you made a right decision. Of course something’s are entirely unexpected but you can be happy if you find an answer about why you made a decision to divorce.
I made a list for myself and I wrote on my mobile.
I asked myself why I divorced from my ex?
I had many rational reasons and I wrote it to know why I made it.
It’s very helpful. You can check your reasons when you faced with any difficulties.
