In this article I am going to explain about how a friend of mine managed
to get through a rather messy divorce and how she came through the whole
experience a much stronger person. I hope her story helps other people
who have or are going through a divorce.

My friend is called Sue and she married her childhood sweetheart called
John when she was only twenty-two. Sue has explained that at the time she
could not have been happier and was very much in love. She hoped and
imagined that they would spend the rest of their lives together. Sue had
met John when she was at school and they had been dating since the age of
fifteen.

After the marriage, they then talked about starting a family and before
long they were parents to two boys. Sue believed that this was the icing
on the cake and left work to bring up her children.

Unfortunately things were to soon go horribly wrong. John started coming
home later and later from work and Sue was at a loss as to what was going
on. John of course stated that he was only doing his work and that he was
working overtime to give his family a better life, especially as Sue was
no longer working. In reality John was having an affair with a woman he
had met at work.

After a few months Sue found out about the affair and asked John as to
why he had seeked the attention of this other woman. He replied that Sue
had been the only woman he had slept with and that he felt that he had
missed out on the experience of dating other people. Despite the fact
that Sue was willing to forgive John, the relationship was soon to end as
he moved in to live with his other woman.

Sue was obviously very upset and could not believe what was happening to
her. Before long divorce proceedings were under way and Sue decided to
put the family house on the market and returned home to live with her
parents, the boys of course went with her.
This was a very depressing time for Sue. One day however she was walking
through her local shopping precint and saw a group of handicapped
children. Sue thought to herself that the situation she was in was only
temporary and that she would eventually be happy again, but that these
children would more than likely to be handicapped for life. This
strangely enough helped Sue to gain the strength and to think positive
about the future.

Sue is now re-married and is once again very happy, she still hates her
ex-husband however. Sue has learnt a lot from her experience of getting
divorced and tries to think in a much more positive way. She has realised
that there are many people in the world in a far worse position than what
she is in.
