Hi. I'm A New Member

Hi. Just joined. I'd like to ask advice about my broken marriage. I'm staying in it for the kids sake. We live in the same house, but lead basically separate lives more or less. But my youngest is almost done with high school. Two boys. One in college. One in high school. So the end is near. I got married 16 years ago. But really only 11 since the last five the marriage has been non-existent. I'm 49 years old. Live in New Jersey.

Re: Hi. I'm A New Member

Welcome to TAM but sorry you are having these problems.

What is your plan going forward? Does your husband know that you are planning to divorce? Have you two talked about this?

Welcome, what kind of advice are you looking for?

If your not the object of your lovers heart, then your just an object.
If you think the grass is greener on the otherside it's not, what you see are the weeds.

Re: Hi. I'm A New Member

What existed the first 11 years that disappeared the past 5? Did you come here to find out how others deal with a post-divorce future, or is there still the slightest chance things could work out? There are quite a few stories here of relationships that nobody would ever think recovery was possible, but it happened almost despite conventional wisdom and advice here on TAM.

Welcome, @rfd1283.

What went wrong?

Can it be repaired?

What do you want to happen, next?

Re: Hi. I'm A New Member

Thanks for responding everyone. I just posted to thread in General forum with a lot more specifics. Someone asked about my husband. Ha. I am the husband. I'm estranged from my wife. But I realize now I didn't mention that in this thread. It's in the General Forum post. Sorry for the confusion.
