Just from reading your article in the Daily Mail about your separation, I feel like I know you.
My then Husband of 27 years walked out on me and my Adult Daughters.
He told them first of his affair and I found out on my return from work. The night before he cooked for us and no inkling of betrayal.
I liken it to a tsunami as it engulfed not just the three of us but involved all our family and friends.
I cried every night for two months and the physical symptoms of heartbreak are all encompassing.
The Man turned from a family, upstanding member of my life to a cold, calculating human who changed so irrevecubally.
I don’t know him anymore and nor do his family.
It is a bereavement and that is a minimum of two years to grieve so I am not there yet!
It is humbling that you chose to tell everyone as ‘It was’. That is why I had to get in touch with you. There is a fantastic book called Abandoned Wives which I read over and over again. It is good to hear other Women’s stories of Men just leaving their home without a care in the world.
You have joined the club now and I wish you continued strength and positive thoughts.
