First, I'm sorry for your pain. Second, you won't believe me now, but it does get better! My husband left me for another woman 7 years ago. I was a SAHM of 3 children (the youngest was 18 mos.) and I had just started college. For 5 years he fought me for custody, didn't pay child support, and in general, made my life hell. We had been married for 15 years and I thought my life was over. But here I am now, college degree in hand, starting my own business, remarried and raising 4 beautiful kids (yes, I added one!). He gave up on the custody battle(because he kept losing) and then just stopped seeing the kids. He hasn't seen them for 2 years, which is hard on them, but better for them because he was a crappy father anyway. Well, I tried to keep that fairly short
...anyway, hang in there! Stay strong for your kids and this difficult time will pass. You will feel happiness again!
