Default Wife's rebound

Just wanted to get this off my chest its been bothering me,
My wife left two months ago with the whole not in love with you speech after 18 yrs together 17 married. Two weeks into the seperation she files for D just about the time I find out she has a new set of friends and a guy who wants to see her. Well she has been hanging around this guy for the last month and a half. She rushed the D paperwork and now we both have signed and wait 90 days and its done. This seems like a rebound relationship to me just to fill the gap. My question is how long does it take before a rebound crashes and burns, seems like most do. She has had no time to stop and reflect on our marriage at all. Is she setting herself up for disaster or will they have a chance. Any thoughts, Thanks.

Always a chance.

He was probably in her / the picture before she leads you to believe.

It's a new high for her. Who knows how long.

Yes, these things typically crash. However I do know of some that have stayed.

I'm with you. Long story in mine and I deleted my thread, but with complications, same thing.

Mine's rushing papers to be signed as well. I've decided it's probably like yours. OM that started this is out of the picture probably and she probably has a new "friend" At this point, reflecting back, Fvck HER!

keep on this forum. All kinds of good info. Just read up in Coping With Infidelity and Going Through Divorce sections. Won't take you long to get the info you need.

Good luck.

I know this hurts like nothing else right now. Most of the time when someone rushes into a relationship during a divorce or immediately after a divorce-like your wife has-it does not last. She hasn't had the time to work on herself. The best thing you can do now is not to concern yourself with her relationships or if they are going to succeed or not. I was married for a long time too and I know how hard it is to let go; but keeping the attitude of "I don't care anymore" will help you in the long run. She isn't your problem, move forward and take care of you!

Those relationships are out of desperation , to live for the moment , today !

They don't last more then a year if that 1

180 , NC and DARK !

Don't bother at all ! She'll learn the hard way believe me ! My story is almost the same , just divorced but she is changing her mind quickly .

Just be strong and 180 !

Just don't answer the calls ! If the text is about the kiddo , answer it but business only , polite and with smile !

Have someone do the exchange !

Don't say " not possible " ! It is possible !

Stay friends = I want to keep you aside me as a Plan B , if the thing doesn't work with posOM !

DON'T DO IT !

Like everyone else here you are not alone, I too am going through the same process.

My advise, the same as BM!

180, NC, Let her go, You go DARK!

I plan to p/u my kids on thurs. and have family drop them off on Sun. to her. Get the point, DARK! Then I will not see her for like 2 or 3 weeks.

The next time i MUST see the STBXW will be a xmas party for my kids that we wil both be at on the 14th. Then i will be happy, cheerful, all about my kids!

Give them what they want, you want a D or S then you got it. Show them what they are losing, be the best YOU for YOU!

Dont be her plan B-

Remain indifferent and calm and watch what she does not what she says

Nope. She gave up this right. Friends don't do this to one another. Move on, she already has. The woman you knew is dead.

So sorry.

They want you to jump at their requests but is she there for you? Probably not...my philosophy in this case "Treat others as you'd like to be treated."

I guess this rebound relationship will last depending on how much of a friendship you have with your ex.

What I mean is if I was your wifes new BF I wouldn't be to keen on the fact that my chick was still seeing her ex.."just a friends".

So I suggest you become a "real good friend" with your STBXW and keep the doubt in the OM mind that something is still going on.

Play on this guy insecurities and leave the lines of communication open with your STBXW and maybe it will last alot shorter then your STBXW and her new BF think.

I remember a thread here were a husband lost his old lady to OM and she even got a tatoo of OM name on her. The husband was open with being her friend for the "kids sake" and was even communication with OM mother......the OM became so controlling and was so insecure the WW went back to her husband.

[QUOTE=loverher;1259769]My wife left two months ago with the whole not in love with you speech after 18 yrs together 17 married. This was the first clue that she was already in another relationship

Two weeks into the seperation she files for D just about the time I find out she has a new set of friends and a guy who wants to see her. Again, she didn't develop this new network of friends and the new guy in 2 weeks time.

This seems like a rebound relationship to me just to fill the gap.Sorry to be so rough but this isn't a rebound. This is the reason she left.

Stick with the 180 and go dark on her accept for communication regarding your child

Do some investigating (check her cell phone records and look for alot of calls/texts to one or 2 numbers you don't recognize. I can almost guarantee they're there

If she still has some access to the computer your using, put a keylogger on it. While it may be locking the barn after the horse has bolted, it may also give you the evidence you need to expose her to her family and friends for cheating on you

Good lucl and BTW, SCREW the "let's be friends" stuff.

Well be going on two days NC 180 have not heard a peep from her. She will drop off my daughter tonight after her counseling session. I asked my W to take so she can see all the hard ache and anger my daughter has with her,going to stay calm and show no emotion hope it is quick and easy.I have finaly got to the point where I dont care what she is doing, papers are signed and I can do nothimg more than take care of my daughter and myself. This sucks but In my heart I have done all I can.
