A Letter From a Reader
My husband and I are getting divorced. There’s no one else on either side. We just shouldn’t ever have gotten married in the first place. And I don’t think we would have been married as long as we have except that I’ve put up with everything that’s wrong without saying anything about it.
The thing is, our teenage children are beginning to blame me – even though they’ve seen some of the things that have gone wrong in the past and seen how their dad was at fault. One of my daughters says her dad is finding it very painful and that I’m being cruel – even though he was the one who moved out. Frankly, I’m finding this more upsetting than separating from my husband.
