Title: "Regretting Divorce" Author: Unknown
I pushed for a divorce because there was so much yelling and fighting and anger in our home. My husband would get mad at lot of things and I would get mad when he would yell at our child. This went on for years. We tried counseling, but neither one of us seemed committed to it. Through out our marriage, I kept saying I wanted a divorce...some times, I felt it was true and sometimes I felt it was not true. Well, after pushing for a divorce for so many years, and having to listen to all the yelling, I asked him to move out.
He left for a while, but we were always in each other lives because we had a child. He eventually moved back in after he lost his job and we tried once again to try and fix our marital problems, but after a few months the yelling started again and the anger. So, I decided to move out. I could not live with the yelling anymore and it was doing a lot of harm mentally to me and our child...it was the best thing to do at the time.
Well, we divorced and it hasn't even been a year yet and I totally regret it because now my spouse is in counseling, his relationship with our child is so much better, and we get a long better too. I asked him to come home and remarry, but he said he can't because I put him through too much and now he needs to be on his own and to own his own place. I regret divorcing him because now, I have probably lost my husband forever and I still love him. I never thought I would ever have these feelings again.
I wish I had taken the counseling more seriously and was more committeed to the marriage. I wish I tried harder to save the marriage and I didn't. And now, I have to live with my decision and the consequences of my action because I was too stubborn to let my guard down and reach out to someone for help in our marriage.
