Broken Vows

I take partial responsibility for my marriage falling apart.  I obviously did something that made my husband turn to someone else. 

However, I will NOT take ANY responsibility for my marriage ending.  That is 100% on Garett’s conscience (not that he has one).

I humbled myself to him.  Begged him to come back to our family.  I would have done anything to keep our marriage from ending.

I would have worked on our broken vows.  Worked on forgiving and moving on.  Gone to counseling. 

Who knows, maybe it still would not have been enough to keep us together.  After 22 years together, I deserved the chance to make it right.

I'm sorry you're going through such a hard time. Divorce is painful-PERIOD! If you know that you did everything you could to fight for your marriage, then that's all you can do. Unfortunately it sounds like your EX is a coward and should be ashamed that he abandoned a family and his responsibilities. You will move on and be stronger and when it's time, you will find a wonderful love. Be strong for your son and nourish that relationship.
Are you a member of a church? Maybe some counseling from your pastor/priest would help. I did that after my breakup of 8 years with my EX. It helped me. hang in there.
