I am 4 weeks into my husband saying he wants a divorce. He immediately filed and had me served with the papers within days of telling me wanted a divorce.
It has been the worst 4 weeks of my life. I wish we knew what God has in store for us, because I don't know how I am going to live after the divorce is final. My husband makes low six figures and I don't make enough to rent an apartment and pay my bills. Unfortunately, Texas laws don't help the woman, which I really don't understand. Trying to get alimony is nearly impossible.
I really need a miracle. I have been married for 25 years to a functioning alcoholic and drug abuser. I stayed with him because I do love him and because we have three beautiful children (all in college). He is able to keep his job and do it well. Everyone loves him. Our kids know that he did drugs at one time in his life, but they don't think he has always done them. He said he wants a divorce because I wanted him to change and he does not want to. Since separating he has been partying, going out and having a good ole time. It is breaking my heart. We lost our house a few years back and all our savings because he tried to start his own business, so we have nothing to divide. Which means I get nothing. He gets to live on his money and I get to live on what I make.
I pray everyday for peace in my heart and for a way to live when this marriage comes to an end.
