Close friends of ours are getting a divorce.

Post by WorkingatHome » Sat Aug 22, 2009 5:23 pm

Both my husband and I were shocked when I got a phone call from one of our dear friends that her husband decided he was done and wants a divorce.
We have taken 2 vacations with them in the last 12 months. We took the kids to Sea World as families and we also took an adult only trip on a 4 day cruise. From what we say, all was good. The wife knows the last 3 months have been hard - new job and a move to a new city, but she did not think that 3 tough months meant ending a 15 yr. marriage.

He will not talk to my husband or any other friends. He finally meet with his wife after a week and a half to talk after only communicating using txt messaging and e-mails.
It is just sad.
Advice? She wants to make it work, forgive, move on - what do I tell her?

Well, I am not a good one to dish out that type of advice considering I have been happily married for 24 years.

However, I am a child from a broken home...my parents divorced when I was almost 6 years old...frankly, I wish they would of never gotten married or at the very least, divorced sooner. I got tired of hearing their bickering.

She does agree - that they should not stay together for the kids. I guess time will tell.
I just wish he was handling their communication better.

Well I dont even know what to say.My parents were divorced when I was young...Im glad they did.They were both having affairs that they tried to hide and they made living in the same house a nightmare.They got along better after the divorce.Its too bad that he is handling the communication terribly,but if he is not willing to go to counseling or whatever and he is for sure he wants a divorce than there is really nothing that can be done.Im sorry.
