Hi there!

I'm not sure if this will land in the right section. Hello everyone, my name is Christine. I'm married to a long distance truck driver, together we have 4 children and 7 grandchildren together. I found this site on my online travels, so I thought I'd join as I've been looking for somewhere to discuss marriage as I married later in life. 45, first marriage. He's 47 3rd marriage. LONG story.. But I thought I'd introduce myself, and say hello...Hello.

Re: Hi there!

Hello. Welcome!

Now to the rest of the storied past.

Why has Mr. Wopette gone through two marriages and now on his third?

No mercy here!

Re: Hi there!

LOL...Mr. Wopette and I went to high school together, he a grade ahead of me. I came from a troubled home, he did not. He wanted to "lead" me as a young couple, and I wasn't having any of that nonsense at that time. So, we broke up. I went off my way, never got married...He dated a girl after me, had sex, got her pregnant, does the "right thing" and gets married. 2 kids later, he's a long haul driver, comes home to find out she's off carrying on with another man.

A couple years go by, he meets another woman, no kids...They get married after 12 years of being together, comes home..She's been running up debt in his name to the tune of $70000 yes, that's 4 0's and was shagging the landlord to get out of the rent to keep for herself...I kid you not.....

Sorry for the late reply, just figuring out how to move around in here..

Those are the stories he told you. I wonder if they'd say the same thing.

And if not, what makes you think he's more truthful then they are?

Re: Hi there!

Well the children validated the first one...

The proposal for the debt and the divorce papers for the other.....

Re: Hi there!

Yes, he is that sort of guy to get walked on like that. I could EASILY do it to him and he'd be none the wiser..He's just like that by his own nature. Once he trusts you, it's ALL...

The only reason he married me, is because it was me...We've always had a "weird" thing between us. 20 years went by and we got together and it was like "normal"...

Like I said, there's his story and the truth, and the kids could have been told anything and just because there was a debt that doesn't necessarily mean it happened in the way that you were told it did and people write things in divorce papers that speak badly of the other person which are not necessarily true just because they sign and notarize on the dotted line.

Re: Hi there!

No the kids are all grown up now, I'm very close with his daughter, the stuff she's told me....Yeesh...His past marriages are not an issue for me. The first one is a flake, LONG gone...The second one passed away a couple of years ago.

We're 11 years in now, he's an amiable guy..We have a good marriage on the whole I'd say. And the crap he takes from me is phenomenal...LOL

Re: Hi there!

Then you're all good.

I don't mind being wrong once in a while.

Although from your first post it sounds like there might be some bumps.

Edited to add.

I just read your other thread where after at least 10 years of marriage and fixing his credit and slowly but steadily making plans to secure your financial future, your husband went and made a horrible major decision without consulting with you that threw your entire 10 years worth of careful financial planning right into the garbage can.

I hate being right all the time.

Re: Hi there!

That's more than a bump.

It's a sure sign of why his first two marriages failed.

He doesn't operate like half a couple. He does what he wants, when he wants it, regardless of the effect it might have on his committed partner.

This is why you are here and why your head is spinning and why you're running out of ways to defend this "nice guy" who just happened to meet 2 wrong people before he married you.

Re: Hi there!

It's the only BIG wrong he's done in 11 years. He got excited and jumped for something he's always wanted..He knows I'm angry, he also knows I'll ride it through.
