Two months before dday, June 2012, my dad passed away and left me his black jeep. That summer my amazing son took it home to fix it up. When I picked it up in Oct. it was transformed into a hot pink Barbie Jeep and pretty much the only thing that made me smile in 2012. It feels like my dad sent me a gift to help me deal with this mess.
I don't normally swear, but my dad sure did, so when I am driving the Jeep I just feel totally justified in letting it all come out. I might look like a nice old lady driving along, but I sometimes am just swearing up a storm, Jeep therapy?! It cheers me up.
I found SI shortly after picking it up and it felt like the pink Jeep was the only thing that wasn't messed up in my life, so I was clinging to it for dear life!

My username came about because I got "burned" by my ex H, and I am Canadian (canuck) and I have dabbled in the emergency services for years as a firefighter / EMT. No longer do it full time as I changed career directions but its still who I am, a part of me I felt was lost in my relationship years.
Me: BW 38, Him: WH 37
Divorce Granted on December 5, 2012 - fasted divorce ever (thanks to my good lawyer) and I am not looking back with ANY regrets!!

Well, I figured if my wife could have her mid-life crisis, then I'd have mine -- so I went out and found a 21 year old German. She's beautiful, with amazing curves, and she's a lot racier than my wife :)
If I want recovery, then I must allow for it to actually happen.
Is it possible that I actually do have all the truth now?
me - husband A46
her - wife A42

My H's nickname for the OW was princess. He actually had her saved in his phone under that name. So of course, I am noprincess. And you know what? I'm not a princess in any way. I'm scrappy and tough and self-reliant. Last week, I ordered a drain pump for my washer from ebay and fixed the damn thing myself. Yeah, I'm noprincess.

Married young 17 years ago. My W and I were each other's first. She is still my only. That meant something to me, guess not to her. Reminded me of an old song, "One-owner heart"

I wanted something that's like no other username I've ever had. I thought this was appropriate, because it's the nickname for a world champion ice dancing team, Meryl Davis and Charlie White (therefore, they are sometimes referred to as 'marlie') whom I hope will win the Olympic gold medal in 2014 in Sochi over their rivals, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir (also sometimes called "Voir" by skating fans).
I'm a pretty rabid skating fan and since Virtue and Moir already won gold in 2010, I am rooting for Davis and White this time. Do yourself a favor and youtube their "Bollywood" performance from Vancouver 2010 Olympics. You'll see why I'm a fan!
WS: 35 and definitely SA
Married: 9 years
1 stepchild, now 18 years old
ONS: Multiples over at least a 6-year period, at least twenty
1 OC 5 yrs old and another on the way (by different ONS)
DIVORCED AND FREE!!!!

I was stunned in 2012 ---
I had suspicions/questions in 2010/2011 but 2012 was confirmation.
ME - Betrayed Spouse
Him - Wayward spouse
Not sure, but trying I guess.

We were everyone's "perfect couple". Inseparable.
Seldom was one of our names spoken without the other. It was always "Jim and XXX"
Looks like now it's Just Jim.

Because the stuff I was going through felt like a wild ride, like a roller coaster. And I hate roller coasters.

I wanted something more positive even when I feel down and negative most of the time. A friend of mine, P., contracted colon cancer in her 30s. She was raising 3 young children ad had a very devoted husband. The treatment just wasn't working well and it was just a matter of time. Another friend of ours, T., saw her last driving down the street and as P. drive by she her hand under her chin and pointed to T. to keep her chin up. I always think of her in hard times that if P. could keep her chin up through all that, then somehow I can find a way to keep mine up too.

I suppose 'Truly' just sums it up. For me it has always been about the truth; honesty and integrity are, and always have been, important to me.
Also, I am 'Truly Scrumptious' anyone remember that character...? Yikes!
and I oscillate between being any number of wonderful Trulys and I own them all!sometimes I am:
Truly pissed off
Truly hurt etc etc
and he is...
Truly stupid! lol
Gosh, I needed a chuckle today so for that I truly thank you x

I was in a daze and when I thought of how crappy this year has been starting in January with an accident my dad was in, going on down to Dday (me being sick, my mom being sick, etc...on and on and on) it was like "this just freaking tops it off." That and I was thinking of alcohol and "top 'er off" but I don't even drink. I wanted to pick it up but thanks to some allergies it would probably kill me faster than others.
BS - Me 36
WS - Him 35 (almost 36)
Child: son, 6; just learned one on way
DDAY - July 24, 2013 (thousands spent on ex girlfriend)
DDAY2 -Aug. 3, 2013 (proof he slept with her)

I didn't find SI for 2 yrs after d-day.
So I was still suspicious!
And I might just be this way for quite a while!
