Husband left after 45 years of marriage.
Did something happen in his brain? Is something not connecting?
we have known each other for 50 years, have been married for 45. We jut built a new house two years ago. We have gotten along fine... Grown children and grandchildren. He told me he loved me every nite. a couple months ago he met someone who reminds him of me only 12 years younger. She was divorced. Now he is divorcing me and I can hardly catch my breath.
After 45 years I am reeling, I can hardly bare to keep going. I still don't know how he could leave everything and just walk away.!!!!! Left clothes in the drawers, Tools in the basement - lots of them. Living in a one bedroom apt probably until they can be together. but wow so much history. He also left his mother. She is living with me. She thinks it was my fault.!!! He is divorcing me and I feel like I am a spinning top. All going so fast. This is unbelievable... Did something happen to him? He is very cold to me. so uncharacteristic of him.??? Strange.Noel's response

Some men just seem to run off the rails during their midlife transitions.
