Re: Walk away spouse and finances.. advice?
Man, mornings are hard. I usually feel pretty good around bed time, but mornings are tough.
Been reading a lot of threads just to get an idea of how these things work and how people get on successfully with their lives.
I've noticed, of course, that wives check out way before leaving and/or cheating. That process usually takes years and the wife usually puts some sort of effort into making the marriage work. That sure didn't happen in my case. At the first sign of unhappiness, mine checked out and checked in with someone else.
It also amazes me how attached we men become to one person. If you believe all the crap you hear or read in pop culture you would think it was women who get super glued to one person. Seems like we men have a hard time breaking attachments.
And danged if all the stories, although nuanced, don't have the same basic plot and the same lines. There are some exceptions. But I find that upon reading the first few posts of a thread, I can predict if there will be an affair later on in the thread. Of course, that's old news for the veterans here, but it's amazing to me how the behaviour fits such a pattern.
