If he had found something better that summer...he would have taken off.

Ugh...soooo many people living their lives this way in crappy, unhappy marriages while dreaming of the life they really want. Pathetic story and pathetic woman for feeling triumphant in writing it. She sure stuck it out there for a real winner of a
I kinda resemble that remark.

I stayed because I couldn't bear the thought of losing the children. And I did in the end get "liberal access". Was it the right thing to do?

Don't judge until you've been in the same position. There were reasons I knew the kids would choose if asked to stay with her(and they were all over 14). And they were truly my reason for being.

In the end, my ex fabricated an argument, and kicked me out. Yes I could have fought it, but I would have risked my relationship with my kids.
