what dads lose in divorce

The Approaching Storm Before the Divorce: It Wasn’t One Thing

Spread the love

I like to say things like this. “My ex-wife did us all a favor by asking for the divorce.” And then I will often talk about how happy I am now, transformed by the divorce. And my kids seem to be happy and well-adjusted. And my ex… Well, I’ll stay out of her business and assessing her state of mind. But there’s a good bit of the story that is left out when I take this repose about my divorce. It was a good thing given the toxic circumstances of my crumbling marriage. So in that respect, yes, she did us all a favor. But let’s dig a bit deeper to see where things went foul.

The first infidelity

The second fracture

Moving On

Hope for What’s Next

Always Love,
