Quoting Red Bottom:" You say YOU try and work through it.... So I'm guessing you constantly have issues and then you just ... [snip!] ... enough to admit he's wrong? Time to pack the smurf up and leave. Relationships are about love and appreciation. That's it. "
"Relationships are about love and appreciation."
I divorced my sons father after less than a year of marriage. He was a cheater before we got married and then he moved off in the military and was a cheater after. I tried very hard to keep things together but, the last straw for me was when I took my son to visit and found a bunch of scraps of paper with girls names and numbers on it (like a man would get at a bar...). And, he threw food at me while I held our six month old son.
Now, we've been divorced for almost five months and are just starting to learn to get along.
I have been in a relationship with a man for about eight months and things are very serious. It is SO different than it was with my sons father. This man treats me with respect and I actually trust him, unconditionally. It is an amazing feeling.
