    As a I see it, the wife committed an act of cruelty. It is cruel to end a relationship without warning or explanation, comment or conversation. Just remember to stress to your lawyer that she walked out without any attempt to mitigate the situation. She was wrong to do that and it,ought to go against her.

    Agreeing with others, call a divorce lawyer in the morning, and have no contact with the wife or her lawyer until you are being counseled by your owner attorney. Oh, and you are allowed to be damned angry. It helps from letting the bad feelings eat your up.

    Best wishes to you. You will get past it.

    They are staying a few nights with my mom. Luckily they didn't have to see me cry, yet.

    Don't be afraid to let them see you cry. They need to know you're human. They need to know this matters to you, that they matter to you.

    Be as patient as you can. Exercise as much self control as you can. When you're angry or exhausted, cut off communication.

    Set goals. Things like:

    1) Make sure none of us ever have to go through this again; that could mean FIX the problems, or it could mean divorce. But no repeats.
    2) Never become those parents the kids dread having in the same room. See patience comments.
    3) Learn to be a better person

    Use those goals to help you make decisions. Don't make them too fast, but don't drag them out forever, either.

    Get a lawyer.

    Commit to doing something just for you on a regular basis. One guy I knew, it was his motorcycle. Another, working out. Ya gotta stay sane, or as close to is as possible.

    Find someone you can trust and talk to in person. Watch your alcohol intake.


    I'm sorry for what you're going through. This may - and probably will - get rough. We're here for you.

    Dude, that sux. As a man who has been married for 28-years, through good times and bad, you are certainly in my prayers. Having not been through what you're about to endure, I can only advise you this; stay on the high and moral road. Speak not a foul or disparaging word regarding your soon to be former spouse. If there are bridges to be burned, let her be the arson. Your kids are, from this point forward, the only important thing in your life. And got God's sake, please get a competent divorce lawyer.

    Sorry to hear this. From watching other people experience similar circumstances, the best advice I can offer is "See a lawyer NOW. and follow whatever advice you get there."
