Mid-Life Crisis / Betrayed or Completely Selfish?
Married for 31 years, my husband's dream was to always build his own company. We never had children, but throughout our marriage, our love and commitment for each other helped us surpass the many hardships and disappointments that came our way. He always said that we got to keep going and never give up until we reached our goal and fulfilled our dreams.
Both being hard workers (however me mainly bringing in the money) one would think to consider to change whatever was not working in order to make it work and succeed? Unfortunately my husband didn't want to accept or hear of it, but I never ever put him down or made him feel that he was ever a lesser man as we always did things together and kept striving ahead.
Two months ago, my husband tells me that he is going to be 55 soon and has nothing and that I had the full-time job and he didn't love me, that he would split things down the middle and I should receive separation papers within 4-6 weeks. I was so devastated and numb. He than left me and moved in with a woman 9 years his junior who has a 15 yr old daughter from a previous 2nd marriage. I have not heard from him nor have I received any separation papers, but was informed that he is trying to sell his equipment and items that were both ours for money.
Isn't it funny how one can be married for so long and suddenly becomes an "x" overnight, just like that!
Question: Mid-Life Crisis?
Question: Any Remorse On His Part?
Sounds like a midlife crisis. My suggestion is you do whatever you can to freeze any assets you have a rightful share in so he can't sell them and keep (spend) all the money.
