    First marriage lasted 18 years.  Second,  a month and a half.  Yes I know,  I rushed it.  Oh well,  go ahead and beat me up on here if it makes you happy.
    God gives us only so much time on earth, don't waste it. Jesus blood washes sins away, just pray.

    Wow, I gave it 6 months at the upper limit.   Your beating yourself up, not anyone else doing it.   Lay back for about five years and get to know yourself, not someone else.  You’ll be okay.

    Most of us get some kind of wakeup call at some time in our life DCH. Your’s has been just a little louder. Now is the time to sit back and take stock of your life and where you want it to go (as you yourself have noted).

    David, I can’t believe that anyone here wants to ‘beat you up’ over this bad news, though honestly I’m sure that many are only sighing because it was predictable. I pray and beg you to please surround yourself with some wise brothers who will help you make good decisions based on faith and sound Biblical principles, rather than allowing yourself to get carried away by your emotions.

    It’s easy for you to sit there and say that you’ve learned your lesson, but if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll recognize that you made those same statements numerous times over the last couple of years. In fact at one point you talked about you and your former wife getting back together, then the next thing we knew, you announced that you were married to someone entirely different.

    No ill-will or harshness here, but I do pray that you will learn to allow actual faith and Biblical reason to rule over your feelings.

    Man, get back on that horse.  The wild ones will throw you, but you just gotta climb back on, grip a little tighter and dig in those spurs.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_wink}

    Hope you did not give up another 50% of your stuff – heck I coud not shoot with only 1/2 doz arrows – lol

    Good Luck!

     

    FYI after 23+ years of marriage and a divorce where I pay $2000 (spouse support) every month for 10-years while paying for 2 in college, believe me I feel your pain and I will never remarry not in this society. Be smart to recognize that some need others to help them back in the saddle so just look at her as a cowgirl :)  You will learn to ride properly again, just takes a couple teachers…

    Kind of echoing what Chris said.  I don’t think anyone here will take “joy” in your condition.  It seemed like your decision was rushed… because you rushed it.  There were a lot of people that tried to caution you that you were rushing it.  I think if you had stopped to listen to yourself, you would have realized you were rushing it, but it is hard sometimes when you get swept along by fast moving emotions.  Sailors know that when the winds come up quickly and you have full sail, you really need to be mindful of the rocks below while you trim the canvas.

    Chalk it up to experience… try to learn from it.  I hope the lesson isn’t too dear.

    Sorry brother. Hope the divorce was amicable.

    Word of advice? Not every aspect of your personal life should generate a forum thread. And unless you learn how to be happy alone, being happy with another person is impossible.

    Kick back and enjoy yourself and your kids. Good luck.

    David,

    I am sorry to hear about this. And, I am sorry that some on this forum enjoy making light of your circumstance.
    I will keep you in my prayers.
