"Life is loneliness," she said.
I said "Stay with me."
We laughed and sang and worked all day,
then danced the night away.
We built a home. We bought a car,
And traveled roads afar.
"This isn't love," she said.
So then she went away.

No; I've never even had a boyfriend. I get to see how messy divorce can get since I work as a paralegal for a Family Law attorney. Trust me on this, getting a divorce is a LONG process (even the simple ones, and thanks to budget cuts it takes even longer to get a divorce) and EXPENSIVE (regardless of whether or not you have an attorney), so be absolutely sure that if you do get married, you will stay happily married.

Thanks to my job, I really never wanna get married!

*Divorced? Someone in CR? no one in here can even get into a relationship in the first place.

Yep. We grew apart. Or at least, she did.

So, here's a tip: don't trust military recruiters. 6 months on a ship is a long time. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but that's apparently not true for everyone.

yup, been divorced... got married at 21 and it ended 2 years later, almost to the day of the anniversary...

we had a huge argument and she took off and stayed at her grandmother's house... a week after that she called me up and wanted to talk... told me that she slept with her sister's brother-in-law during that time and was going to stay with him...

it was beyond devastating at the time... she was the only girl i thought about for the past 8 years and she's telling me she's going to leave me for HER SISTER'S BROTHER-IN-LAW...

her family, surprisingly, took my side and kicked her out of her grandma's house... she moved in with the guy, i was even nice enough to pack her stuff at home and drive it over... talked with her brothers and they tried reassuring me, telling me i'll get through this and everything'll be okay... i think i hid the pain pretty well, although i did break down in front of her oldest brother after her other brothers left...

i needed the talk, he helped clear my head and put things in perspective... during the talk, i spoke of how much i missed school, what would've happened if i hadn't left to be with her like she wanted... he said i had no ties now and that i should find out if i still wanted to... it was all i needed to pack as much as i could into my car to leave for another place and start anew...

i called up a buddy from high school i hadn't seen in a while and told him about the situation and he offered to let me room with him for as long as i needed to... it was far enough away for me to get away from everything, and it was in a bigger town than where i was at the time... spent all night packing everything i could fit into my car... had no use for the apartment or any furniture in it, i wanted as clean a slate as i could possibly get...

the following morning i woke up early, had breakfast, then drove by the guy's place... he answered the door, i looked him straight in the eye and asked for her... all he said was okay and went back inside, the door squeaking as it shut...

a minute or two later she comes to the door with an expression that i thought looked a mixture of surprise and shame... at first glance i notice that she has 2 very visible hickeys on her neck... i'm not sure she knew that i'd noticed, as i don't think i made any sort of face when i did... there was no cursing or yelling, no awkward small talk, all i asked for were the house keys... seemingly confused, she goes back inside to get them...

as i wait, i look around... the day is beautiful, it's mid-june of 2003... a near-cloudless sky is overhead with the morning sun beginning to shine through the leaves in the trees... i don't remember if there was a breeze or not, but the morning did feel cool...

she comes out with the key and hands it to me without a word said... i say "thanks", head back to the car, and drive off... i never heard the squeaking of the door on my way back to the car... i don't know if she still stood there or not as i drove off... i never looked back...

it was rough the first couple of months... but by the start of the next year, my buddies already had me going to clubs regularly, enjoying the bachelor's life i never had a chance to live since 8th grade... i had my fun, then met the girl i'm absolutely sure i'll spend the rest of my life with... we've been together almost 8 years now, have a house with a fence (not white picket)... we even have a dog...

i'm not in the city, but i'm a stone's throw away from san antonio, austin & san marcos... my life is good, very good and i hope hers is as well... i don't hate her or anything, but i also don't ever want to see her again... i wish her the best and hope she's also much happier in life now than she was back then...

no, but my uncle did.
his wife was really sweet and they made a lovely couple, but his dream job was in another state. and her dream job was in this city..
they lived like that, in a long-distance marriage for 4 years i think. /but he would visit her every weekend or every other weekend
they always tried to figure out a way to live in the same place. but neither could find a job of their liking in the other's state.
and so... divorce was the only option left.
but they mainly gave up because he met another person. not really, the lady met him.
he is a journalist, and this lady read all his articles and was a fan and saw him in local tv and just fell for him. she sent him cards. love letters. not the stalkerish type. including pictures of herself ofc. to make it believable. idk. this lady didnt know he was married so.. she really thought she could gain his heart.
and he going through all these with his wife, answered the letters being kind but also asking.. what would she do in a situation like that. the long-distance issue. she said she wouldnt care where she lived as long as she was with the person she loved. she said work came after. and ofc, that's what my uncle wanted. and i dont know much of what happened later.
he divorced. met this lady. and just like that, re-married. and now they have 3 little kids >3< so cute

i did like his first wife a lot. she was nice and sweet and beautiful. but i'm even happier having his second wife as my aunt.
she is just lovely. really, she has that smile really few people have that prove you she is the purest thing on earth. it's just warm and welcoming. wide and honest. aaaaaaaaaawww >< i just feel like patting her head when i see her.
she is tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sweet.
sweetest thing on earth.
and now she is like... what? 29? 31?
but she still looks young and beautiful and just SO DAMN SWEET

I was engaged once, didn't get married. Was with that guy for a little over a 4 years, and I'm so happy I didn't make the mistake of marrying him! Much like your relationship we came the conclusion that we didn't love each other anymore. I'm pretty sure love has an expiration date. After we broke up I really stopped dating all together. I just need time for myself. Also I don't think I will ever find someone like me.
