Divorce was Priceless...

by anon.

My husband was a late 50's widower & recently retired professor when we met and shortly afterward married. I was still working, but he spent his days at home. He kept contact with many of his old associates (men & women alike).


His 'gig' as I would eventually learn was assisting them in their adulterous relationships. He would babysit, petsit, provide alibis, pay for salon services, hotel rooms, lend a car, our guestroom or even my clothes, whatever was needed. What he got out of this I can only imagine, voyeurism is the nicest thing that comes to mind.

It took me awhile to figure out what was happening, then $1000's of counseling and his false promises to stop, and after two years I left. He still doesn't understand why I was so upset.

I will have a few more years to work to recover from the financial loss, but for my sanity, divorce was priceless.

Your article was interesting. I am of the mind that it is better to be single than miserably
married. You had bad luck but had the courage
to get out of it.

Wishing you all the best in the future.
