I have PTSD because of my parents. I had to see a therapist and I will not go in to detail, but what he did gave me another level of anxiety and PTSD. My first husband was also a cheat and I did not even have an account in my name. I got out. I started working for a new company, got promoted, they grew and had two divisions. I took over the management of one and when they wanted out, I took over the entire company. I, too am a Christian woman. God does not want to shame us in to staying with a man who is abusing you and yes, affairs are mental abuse. Sell that junk he's buying your love with and get out. It is never too late to start living your life.

As my Dad used to say; "money can't buy happiness, but it's a lot easier to cry in the back of a limo than on a bicycle".  Smiley LOL

Money is an amazing tool. It concentrates power and makes it portable. It allows you to accumulate things that you want and get other people to do what you want. To some degree those are good things. But it is a small step from working hard to accumulate wealth to falling in love with the power it brings you. How do you know when you have enough? “Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income” (Ecclesiastes 5:10). You know you’re in trouble when money is at the core of what makes you feel safe and secure, when money is at the core of whether or not you feel that your life is a success, when money is at the core of your personal happiness. God made us to be connected in love to other people. Even more, God made us to find our greatest fulfillment, satisfaction, and happiness in loving and serving him first.

Speak to your doctor about this. Also, are you able to live alone. Can you work. Can you get social security. There are a lot of missing details, but no one is tethered to another person. It is a choice. In your case, I suspect it is a hard choice since you do not believe in divorce. You are entitled to some of the marital property though and need to see an attorney. No state will leave you empty handed should you decide to end the marriage. His affairs would also influence the amount you would be awarded. There are shelters in every city. Go to your senior citizens center and ask. They can give you a lot of information about getting help based on what is going on.

Seriously? She is supposed to wait until he decides to give her a divorce. I can agree about the praying, but she needs to take charge of her own life and find her own happiness. Condemning every divorced person as an adulterer if they find love again is wrong!

no I can't work!! I'm disabled in ssi. Very little income of 514.00 A month. I do have a car but not paid for yet. He's paying the payments n I'm paying for extended warranty.

I'm in my bed most of the time because I have peripheral neuropathy n unless he rubs my legs in the morning I'm stuck in bed for the day. He leaves me here purposely. I feel like it's medical neglect. He too gets SSDI n the gov. Has threatened to take away my check n Medicaid if we didn't get a divorce.  They said our income is too high. He stays at different address at night. He has a different address on record with them. He claims he still loves me but i don't love his type of love. I JUST want be happy again. I was hit by a train in 2004 n i have had 14 SURGERIES I died n went to heaven for 7 MINUTES.  God sent me back here he said he wanted me to do his work. So I have. God n heaven is real!!!
