My divorce was final in 2017, though he left earlier after many affairs. It would take ages to type out all my adventures since then and even longer to describe the growth that I've experienced. The day he left,I thought I was going to die. Now I can't believe I was ever married to someone like him. I am SO HAPPY. I reached a point where I was happy to be by myself and then I met someone that is just unbelievably kind, supportive and loving. He is my best friend and now he is my husband. I hope this post gives hope to those who are going through the nightmare of infidelity. Be strong and walk through the fire to the other side. You will be so amazed at how beautiful life can be without someone like that weighing you down.

Awesome update and thank you for sharing. When I first learned of my XWH's infidelity, I was devastated. Like you have found, life can be so much better after D.

I love this post and so happy for you. I hadn’t been on here in a while, but unfortunately had to set up a friend with this site who’s spouse has left him.
I am 10 years out!! What was the most devastating experience of my life, turned into one of the biggest blessings of my life. No, I have not met anyone, but I am okay with that because I found me. It was a journey that was worth it!!!
I am so happy for you and that you have a great new person in your life!!!!

6 years past DDay for me and I am also happily married (I actually got re-married 3 yrs ago) and it has been wonderful. Still lots of heartache with blended family stress and our own personal trauma but we definitely dont weigh each other down and it is such a blessing. I wish you the best and congrats to you!
