Question by rlc_60504: Can you offer advice on how to deal with the seperation of a wife and kids?
A year ago, my wife told me she wanted a divorce. She and I have both been in individual therapy. She only agreed to attend maybe 3 couples therapy sessions, but was disinterested. It has been a year of hell as I've tried absolutely everything possible to save my marriage with no luck. So, she wants to move out in the next month or so. Not what I want for the kids, me or her. I moved to a state to help advance her career. My closest family member is 500 miles away. Outside of work, I have 1 friend here and he is married. How do I deal with not having her around for companionship any more? Also, the kids will be rotating in and out of the house once our 50/50 custody kicks in. I absolutely love my kids. I tuck them both in each night. Any tips to help me prep for this and deal with what is coming? I'm still very much.in love with my wife and kids. Advice from people that have been through this is appreciated. Thanks.

i was in your exact position 12 years ago. my advice to you is to learn how to let go of her, and do it now. once a woman has made up her mind to leave then its all over. find a hobby to fill your time when the kids are away. you will drive yourself crazy if you are holed up in the house. get around some other guys, maybe thru a hobby or common interest. stay in therapy and try to keep from talking too much about your problems with your friends. when you deal with the ex, keep the conversations short and positive. no begging, no sentimental stuff, all business. don't ask her anything about what she is doing unless its kid related. don't be a douche nozzle and bring a bunch of broads around your kids. it will take several years to fully heal from this so don't get in a hurry
