Re: Moving after divorce with a manipulative ex wife.
What I did was attend therapy weekly for about six months. I can't begin to explain what I got out of it. I learned so much about myself, the relationship, and about how to react to certain of her behaviors. Therapy helped me come away content, adjusted, and at peace. If I should enter another relationship I firmly believe it will be baggage free. It's important she doesn't pay for anyone's past sins.
The best gift I can give to my future is to be emotionally healthy and over the last relationship.
