    JanM, I pondered that question many times when I was first trying to figure out what was "off" or "different" in our relationship.

    I came to decide it was him. When friends asked why I just...

    The bottom line is I love HIM. Warts and all. But he left us, and then changed his mind. It could change again a million times and that will kill me. If he told me that he was on board 100% no matter...

    Besides brushing up on my therapy occasionally, I am very interested in personality types/differences and how they affect interactions. I belong to a group that helps leaders (such as me at work) be...

    Huh? Even if I went every week for this 3 years (I didn't), that would be about 150 hours. Add in reading and homework and it would be no more than double that.

    Anybow, thanks for the well...

    I had a pretty crappy childhood. Mom was an addict/dad co-dependent. I was in therapy for about 3 years, not consecutively, for associated issues as an adult.

    I learned better coping skills. It...

    nhwr,

    I assure you, and I think I said something up stream, that I totally accept him as he is, and I know he is not (nor will ever be) neurotypical. He needs therapy to deal with the...

    That's exactly what I would expect/want from "joint" sessions as well. I just think he needs time alone to deal with stuff instead of involving me from the start. I just meant it's more of a "him"...

    Just for clarity--

    I have no intention of moving in with him. I never really did, actually. He has a large piece of land and my notion was to build a barn/apartment on it--not just because "he has...

    For the record, I don't disagree with Trak's view about my kid (or kids in general) needing to come first--always--but especially when a family breaks up. I just could do without the bad parenting,...

    For all those who mentioned it--my daughter is priority #1. My feelings on the matter obviously count, but anything detrimental to her well-being is off the table. The boyfriend has a few odd...

    Have you ever taken him back?

    Here's the story as brief as I can get it.

    I'm in my mid-40s (it is painful to write that, lol, where did my youth go?), and have been separated/divorced since late 2010--almost 4 years now.

    SLW, thanks. The septic is up to code and recently inspected. Roof is a known issue. School district is a good one, although it's more of a drive than the 2 minutes I have here in the 'burbs, lol.

  15. Collective wisdom: To buy or not to buy this farmette?

    I have a show coat from Jo. It was "off the rack", but then I made some design changes (it was a frock, and I wanted a shorter style). It's brown/pinstripe with a black velveteen lapel and custom...

    You don't have to agree to half the debts.

    When we sold our house, the divorce agreement said the any profit was split 60/40 me, and any loss was split 60/40 him, lol.

    I had a shark.

    When I got divorced I got half of all the combined retirement. I had been a part-time worker while our daughter was young, so only worked full time (ie drawing a retirement) for 5 of the 10 years we...

    This is not just in the 20-30 yo set. As part of my divorce agreement, neither my XH or I could have a person we were dating meet our child until we'd been together 6 months. I followed this to the...

    Sigh. I've only "put" the changes on one horse--my current boy. It took 9 months to get more than the occasional clean one. It took almost a year for them to be reliably clean if I set him up...
