Why did you get divorced?Page 11 of 11    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
My husband went nuts, literally, with "visions" so I helped him see the future, without me. Divorced 6 months later by annulment.

Since then one 7 year ltr, but he got the itch for my best girl friend and they both had to go. My last, (a 4 year relationship), well he was a thief and wanted to help populate the earth.. He told me of 3 other "ladies" and I showed him the door.

It's been a long time now, but I know there are real and decent men out there that I would love to make space in my life for.

I feel for you man. My ex became ill immediately after she gave birth to my son. She was originally diagosed with bipolar, which was modified a year later to schizo affective with a bipolar subtype. Mental illness is utterly devasting. Unlike other physical illnesses, you do not even recognize the person you fell in love with and married. That person left the farm when the illness took over.

Best of luck to you!

I got divorced after 10 years of marriage. My question also isn't why did I get divorced, but more why did I stay? He was verbally and emotionally abusive for a long time. It escalated to physical violence the last 3 years of the marriage. Too many calls to social services and CPS. I had to get out for the safety of all of us. Best thing that's ever happened to me. I'm sad about it, there isn't a thing I would've done to keep us together but nothing worked.

"Facebook was the demise of my marriage. Not really, but it starts innocently enough-connect with an ex girlfriend from 20 years ago, email how cute each others kids are, mention how they still look the same after 20 years, and oh by the way I'm divorced now.

except my ex began with MySpace......

I made a BIG MISTAKE and used tracking software on her PC and mobile device.....boy did I find out WAY more than I needed to! Every text, email, correspondence, website visit, key stroke......I sure wish there was a memory delete button! Sure made my court battle easier though. Those country judges don't like that kind of person.

She was the only one I trusted with all my heart, and I am realizing how incredibly difficult it is to do again.

PS: the grass was not greener.

Nope, the grass was not greener for her either. I saw that very quickly.

We didn't take the time to get to know each other. Moved too quickly, and ended up the worst mistake ever only thing I got out of it were my children.

Mine was another social network debacle. My wife started going out to bars during the week with her "friends from work" and not coming home until 4am, and sometimes not coming home at all, leaving me to take care of our son and wondering where she was or if she was coming home. Then she started accusing me of sleeping with a woman I hadn't seen in over ten years because she was on my MySpace page. She'd go through all of my emails, and MySpace messages trying to find something, but there was nothing to be found. When I asked if I could go through her emails, that was answered with a big NO.
One day she forgot to log out of her account, and I decided what the hell, and went through her emails. That very day she had been talking to a guy she knew from high school. She told him that I was cheating and had already moved out of the house (nope - faithful and still living there). She told him that she had been cheating on me with a co-worker. And she told him that if he'd like to hang out sometime and have a double date with her friend, they would both be getting laid that night. Here's the kicker - that guy was engaged to be married at the time. I then introduced myself to this other guy and suggested he stop talking to my wife because I could so easily ruin his wedding plans.
So I confront her with all the evidence (and yes I saved it all digitally), and her answer was, "now you know how it feels." Uh, nope! Sure don't. And when I asked her why she would sleep with a man who's engaged to be married, her answer was, "He's not getting married until October." This happened in March. I found an apartment a few days later and never went back.
The grass wasn't greener (duh!) and she wanted us to get back together, but I refused and got divorced in '09.

I'm getting divorced because my husband doesn't believe that he should be supportive of myself or our two young children; he wants to act like a single guy when he has responsibilities. If you asked his reasoning it'd be because he believes we just don't get along...

My ex had been robbing us blind the whole time we together. I had known something was going on many times but kept accepting his excuses and giving him the benefit. He was also emotionally distant. I should have let him go long ago or maybe not even married him. I can only really blame myself. He had always treated my son very well like he was his own son. We then adopted a child who ended up having a great deal of issues. Our son took most of our attention. When we were ready to divorce I became pregnant after years of trying and fertility treatments so that extended the marriage. We then were in the middle of adopting 2 siblings when he started disappearing the money again. He figured I would not risk losing the kids, but the reality of what he had really been doing all those years became very clear. I was very lucky and the agency supported me in adopting the children alone. After getting rid of him it was apparent he was stealing hundreds from me every week. So I had new found wealth. He still manages to see see the children very regularly. He even sees the ones I adopted alone and acts as a dad. He barely talks to me unless is necessary or wants to borrow money LOL.
