Just wondering if anyone has seen this new show w/Fran Dresher(?)
I really didn't have much interest b/c my X wasn't gay (that I know of at this point, lol - wouldn't surprise me), but I decided that I would watch anyway ---- and I must say, that I'm very impressed. It really can correlate into any marriage that ends in divorce due to people entering into them w/false pretenses and w/out all of their real characteristics being put on the table.
My first love from HS & I are pretty much this same way - even though we were never married --- I knew before marriage that we weren't compatible in that way - lol. We are good friends & I consider him an important person in my life - but we no longer have sex. We actually have been there for each other through the ups & downs in other relationships. Soooo - this all so can happen.
Do I ever see this type of relationship w/my XH? Maybe - I mean if nothing else, we share kids - sooo we have to be in each others lives in some capacity ---- but I think there will always be some hurt feelings there - and b/c of the kids - I didn't have the same amount of time to truly heal (yrs) where I don't see or talk to him like I did my first X. So - I don't know about "Happily" divorced - but maybe just - divorced - lol - without the - "bitterly" in front of it - lol. I think it would be a lot easier to accept that my X was gay - and wanted men - and for me to not take that so personally - then for him to just be the "need 20 million women" type. Ugh ---- Oh - what was it that he said at one point? "Why want you just let me go out & conquer the world?" He was meaning of course in the "business" sense - but I am sure other women were on that agenda! I guess sure - go do that & then we'll remarry when you're 60 w/a limp d*ck and need someone to wipe you a**--- NOT. lol!
