    Geez, I doubt many after 30 years. That sounds horrible.

    24 years my wife left me for her boss at work. BEST MOVE SHE EVER MADE.
    But I will tell you it was tough at first. Wasn't a joking matter back then. But now I can laugh about it.

    I’ve had a couple uncles to. It ain’t good. Friggin sucks. All that time wasted. Most time cheating is involved.

    Does 14 years count? Wasn't pretty, lost 50 pounds in a month and slept about 30 hours in a month. Not because of the divorce but from worrying about my kids. She was acting like she couldn't care less about them. It's all good for me now and has been since about that first month but not sure at all it didn't effect my kids for life though. I'm happily remarried and she's been miserable ever since we divorced. The grass she thought she might find wasn't only not greener but more like a desert. Need someone to talk to? I'm all ears.
