Prayers sent brother Iíve been through a couple and itís no fun. Hardest thing I ever did was tell my 6yr old son I would no longer be living with them. It was a hard and confusing time for him.

Even when you think there is no hope, there may still be some. Idk what your situation is, but I feel as if a lot of marriages can be saved with a whole lot of forgiveness, admittance to being wrong ďof either partyĒ and taking some red words of wisdom from the good book. It may be worth a try.

This. Nothing is impossible with God brother. Been married for 27 years bro and there have been plenty of times I wanted to drag up but didnít. Iím sure she could say the same as well.
A friend of mine was married for fourteen years and totally blindsided by his wife when she told him ďIím doneĒ. Leaving the children was the hardest part for him as well. As said above, he never missed his weekend and itís not uncommon for him to load em up and take em skiing. Last time I spoke with him he was taking them to an aquarium in Alabama.
He is cordial with his x and there has been plenty of times that she asked him to take em when something came up in her life. And other than the separation from his kids, he says heís happier without her.
Best wishes to all of yíall.

My idle time without kids will probably be spent planning what we are doing when they are with me.
Working out was big with me - played lots of basketball. Always made sure there was a book or 2 in the living room and bedroom. It still wont feel right, but it will help the brain rest.

Prayers for you and your family. It's hard to imagine what you're going through. No matter how bad things seem today, there's always a brighter future ahead. You just have to persevere through the worst of it.

Glad it went better than expected. Iím joining lots of others here who are praying for you and your kids. If you get to feeling down, read all the posts on here and know you and your kids have lots of folks praying and thinking about all of you. Then read all these posts again right before you turn in, you will sleep better, God bless you and your kids.

They are. But they are going to endure a ton of pain that they don't deserve.

“ kids are resilient “ ? So many times I have heard that horrible phrase in matters of divorce and it’s only in the name of making their parents feel better! Some lawyer must have coined it back in the day!

While kids might appear to handle things well, there are always issues specially if the parents aren't cordial.

Prayers up for you all.

So you think youíre punishing the Dad by not praying for him? I think I understand what youíre trying to say but we all need prayers regardless of circumstances.

This sucks. Yea, it will get better for you and your ex but it never does for the kids. Dont lie to yourself.

Praying for Christ healing and influence in yours and your exs life but especially for those kids.

Well the parents happiness is crucial for the kids happiness, so thereís that. You have no idea of the situation that led to this. Then there is the scenario that no matter what, the spouse isnít even going to try.The best thing for the kids might be to escape the toxicity of the relationship. It seems you have some kind of flow chart on who ďdeservesĒ your prayers ,but I donít roll like that. Thatís pretty short sighted in my opinion.
Prayers to the OP that everyone involved has best results possible given the circumstances. Which, again, we know nothing about. I can tell that youíve been affected by this type situation,but solutions are not a one size fits all.

Prayers for all!

I went thru a divorce 33 years ago. It was a horrible experience!!!! I now see it as the best thing that ever happened to me, my career, my ex, and my personal growth.

4 kids involved . The gift we gave them was never to use them as leverage, never fight in front of them, never fight over them and never talk bad about the other in front of them.

Ex and I have a healthy relationship now, the kids ( they are all fully grown now ) see that, appreciate that, have learned from that and while I'm certain they carry some emotional scars from the experience there is no question in my mind that our separation was the better option for all.

It may sound corny, but love is always the cure. It just might stretch our preconceived ideas of what love is.

Doesn't hurt to have a good lawyer either
