Original message
I am getting divorced from Mrs R. My decision.
This is not what I wanted, but it's what is necessary.

And so our saga, that of Mrs R and me, like all else must come to an end.

Those of you who have my phone number, please, PLEASE don't call. This is something I have to deal with myself. I won't, of necessity, be around for a while. So many details, selling the house, splitting the proceeds, all that ugly stuff.

I wish, to the bottom of my heart, that this didn't have to happen. But it does.

I thank you all for being such good friends, and I promise that I'll be back. Some day, I will. I owe that to you all, steadfast friends that you've been for me.

Later.

Redstone

15. Most likely.
though it will likely be an expensive battle nonetheless, like it was with my older son.

I'll do what I have to do, to end up with what's best for him.

I have been through it, in CT. But I think your situation sounds much more complicated than mine was.

If you think I might be able to help, just PM me, OK? I do know a divorce lawyer in CT very well.

39. good luck to you also sfexpat
i was not really aware of redstone's situation but i have often worried about your situation because of some of your posts or maybe what i've read into your posts

forgive me if that is a rude or incorrect observation -- it just seems like you have been in a very difficult situation and you deserve better

i just think maybe you take much to heart that is not under your control

well i better quit rambling now since i don't know the right thing to say

Divorce is never easy... my parents are going through a particularly acrimonious one right now. I hope you and your wife separate as easily as the circumstances can allow. Remember to put your son first... you may see things very clearly, but try to see how difficult this situation will be for him. But I'm sure you've already thought of that... if only my dad would do that, too.

Peace

Selling the house and splitting the proceeds is evidentiary.

The ugly stuff resides in the "why" of the divorce.

My heart is breaking for you, Redstone. I'm sorry it had to come to this. But you are about the wisest person I know, so I'm certain you put a lot of thought into your plan and will make the right decisions along the way.

All my best to you, dear heart. As for me, I'm going to miss you something fierce... but I understand and respect your need to work through this on your own.

Be well.


My biggest and best hug for you:

As someone who has actually met you, I know what a stand-up guy you are. I also know how much you love your wife. Sometimes...it's not enough. You have to do what is best for you and your son. I hope your wife gets the help she needs. I know it will be painful, I hope it doesn't also get ugly. My best to you and the little guy.

67. Redstone...
You know how I feel about you. My heart and my thoughts are with you. The ink has just dried on my Dad and Mom's divorce. It's an awful thing...but also a good thing, sometimes.

Take care,
Laura

90. I'm not familiar with your situation
But I waited quite awhile (nearly 5 years) before making a definitive decision. I'm glad I did because I was so aggreviated when I left. Today, former spouse and I are good friends, but we recognize we have very big differences on lifestyle issues.

102. Redstone
I remember when I went through my divorce how at times the change was exciting and exhilarating and then all of a sudden it was as if someone would throw a blanket of sad over me. So many feelings and all so strong. At it's best it is as hard a thing as you can do. My thoughts are with you.

103. I was so touched by the story you told of how you two came together....
I hate this.

You're a good man, Redstone. Stay strong.

You can't stop the heartache
The wrong turns your life takes
You're never really in control....

108. Why?
Anyone can answer if Redstone is not going to. I assume if it was too private, he would not have posted this. So why is this happening? All I have ever noticed was very positive things about her from him. Why would he want to divorce?

109. Redstone, best of luck.
I've been down this path myself, having divorced someone who I loved but just couldn't be with, and I wish you well--it is a kind of horrible heartbreak, and I understand if you won't be around, because it is hard, and you do have to take care of yourself right now. But I know I look forward to you coming back to DU and posting sometime soon--your posts are always interesting and insightful. Let us know how you are.
