Another article I came across that had my blood boiling (think I should stop reading these).
This article has been copied word for word from Daily Mail.
My greedy ex took everything and I’m a bitter wreck:
“My 66th birthday is approaching and I feel I want it to be my last. It all began when I was 15 and met Trevor. My father was difficult and domineering, consequently I married Trevor just after my 17th birthday.
We both became social workers and had the usual ups and downs, but our family life with four children was loving and close. In 2003, on our 40th anniversary, we renewed our wedding vows on a Tobago beach.
In 2004, I had cancer, and during this time Trevor was the most devoted, caring partner I could have wished for. I retired in 2006, looking forward to spending time with our grandchildren.
In 2006, Trevor became a senior lecturer. In 2007, he changed — saying the job was difficult.
He started going to conferences, couldn’t give details, would turn off his mobile at night. You guessed right — an affair with one of his students. At the time she was 28, he was 62. She’d been married twice and had three children by different fathers — the children are the same ages as three of our grandchildren.
Confronted by me, he ran out of the door. Afterwards, he was never allowed (by her) to see me to discuss our marriage of 44 years. Within two weeks of me finding out, he moved her to live close to our home. I felt rejected, humiliated and used.
The family were in shock, except my eldest daughter, who knew about the affair and had already formed a relationship with my replacement. He finally ended our marriage by text.
Our home had to be sold; I couldn’t believe his nastiness and greed. I had to return to work because he was supporting her. He wanted everything from the house: I even received a list of items in her writing.
Two of my daughters and my son have refused to have anything to do with my replacement. I was accused of influencing them, but they’re all over 30.
I struggled to keep a relationship with my eldest, but couldn’t bear knowing she was socialising and holidaying with them, so cut contact, though it broke my heart.
I felt like ending my life, so kept a photo of my grandchildren with me to remind me that I was loved and to hurt them would be unforgiveable.
Now I have a new life — closer to three of my children than ever. My new partner loves me, but I cannot love back. My heart is frozen.
I’ve tried counselling (ironically, my ex used to be a counsellor) and I was told I had a right to feel bitter, but it’s not a positive emotion to carry around.
I see my replacement driving what used to be my car, going to my hairdresser, working at the same job I had with some of my old friends, who feel uncomfortable.
I want to give myself a good shake, tell myself I’m lucky to have someone who loves me, but I feel stuck.”
This poor woman had been with this man all her life, they had almost made it to 50 years together and then he decides to up and leave for a woman 34 years younger than him. Asshole. If he wanted to leave why not do it earlier when his wife would still have her good years ahead of her to start over and begin a new life. All she has ever known is him; they married when she was still a child; 17 years old. She is now 66 years old and is being forced to start a new life, whilst he has already moved on with his young student.
“Within two weeks of me finding out, he moved her to live close to our home. I felt rejected, humiliated and used.” I cannot believe how selfish, inconsiderate and disrespectful a grown man (who should know better) can be. Not only does he cheat on his wife, humiliate her and their 49 year relationship, but he then decides to move his idiot partner close to his home? How dumb is this guy! I would love to meet him just to kick his balls. Also she wrote that he ran out the door when she confronted him and then ended it with a text – says it all doesn’t it. A stupid-foolish-thinking-with-his-dick-coward.
On a serious note though, how does one end almost 50 years of marriage with a text – am I missing something here!
That brings me on to the other woman, firstly I doubt they will last. I really don’t believe this young 30 something year old will stick around with an almost 70 year old. Her track record isn’t so great either – 3 kids by different men – really? Also how the fuck can someone like that have no qualms about breaking up a family and a 49 year marriage, and then actually have the nerve to send the wife a list with the items the husband wants through the divorce. In her own handwriting! She also stopped him from seeing his wife to discuss the divorce. Why would you do that, was breaking up a family not enough, you feel the need to dig the knife deeper? But this brings me again to the old fool – why would you allow some little minx to dictate the last 50 years of your life – are you a man or a mouse?
This woman then proceeds to now drive the wife’s old car, socialise in the places the wife called her own and flaunt the fact that she is living the wife’s life. This female (I refuse to call her a lady), is delusional, fucked in the head and needs to watch her ass, because Karma is a bitch!
Next in the line of idiots is the eldest daughter. Her mother devoted her life to raise her, nurture her and love her. How does she repay her? By befriending the other woman and welcoming her into the family. Seriously, you’re really going to go there?! Not only did she betray her mother by keeping the knowledge of the affair a secret, she then went and nicely stabbed her in the back by socialising and holidaying with the other woman. The woman who helped break her parents relationship and her family. Disgusting.
The husband aka man-whore slut, needs a real man to slap him back to reality. Fine, what is done is done, you had an affair and left your wife and family. But why the need to keep twisting the knife? Why take the house and the majority of the belongings, he fucked up so he forfeited his right to those. He then decides to support his little slut and make his 66 YEAR OLD WIFE RETURN TO WORK!! What kind of human being would put a poor 66 year old lady through all this drama, heartache and hurt at this point in her life. I cannot believe how selfish and cruel people can be.
She should be retiring, living, laughing, reminiscing and enjoying the fruits of her life’s labour.
Instead she has lost everything and has to restart. What a brave strong woman she is.
To the husband, mistress and idiot daughter – I hope Karma pays you a visit, y’all deserve it.
