Ok, I'll start.
I was married 14 years. I have four kids. Everything was great until I lost my job. It took me 4 months to find a new one. I was lucky, a lot of guys I worked with were still looking for a year or more. My wife started acting weird by month 2. I caught her texting a guy. By the time I had my new job she was already out the door to be with her new man. She sees the kids every other weekend. She suggested that schedule. I don't pay her any child support or alimony. She did have a good job but lost it because she showed up hungover to work one day. She's probably now an alcoholic and I have to fight for custody of my kids but I can't afford much at all for an attorney.
I'll never ever get married again. Thanks for putting this site together. It's helped me a lot.
I had an accident at work that left me in bed for almost three months. That's all it took. She left with a buddy of mine and took our two kids. Told everybody that I'm a lazy loser drunk. I have one beer a night. I did get better and got a new job that pays me twice what I got before. We share custody. She's trying to come after me for child support.
