Re: Wife of 15 years wants to separate. How do I survive thi

Well here it is nearly a year later.... :esurprised: I made every attempt I could, did everything I could and she filed papers and divorced me. I kept myself honest until after we were officially divorced and got myself back on my feet. I now own my house outright, have my motorcycle and my hot tub....

Re: The Hobbyist Distiller's Manifesto ( DRAFT)

The problem with the thinking is that you need to be able to bend to each government just a little bit if you are going to get your foot in the door. The Gov will see this as way to still make a small revenue and allow the act itself. If they see people doing this, which they taxed the HELL out of b...

Re: "Flash oil" reference

Sorry. I was going to continue but life got in the way. My wife asked to separate. So things have been a wee bit crazy.
as Choley would say "She wasn't the stayin type."

I'll see about it soon, once I get my life squared...;)

One thing I have to to correct. I messed up the pronouns in the paragraph about her therapist. I'm the one who used the words stuck and fragmented. Just to clarify further when I said her ability to love and share is nowhere near mine, I wasn't making a qualitative comparison, but more of a "were ar...

I can agree with the bike. I have been looking at a couple of cruisers that suit my tastes. Looking for a light frame, low COG and a good pull. I think I may have found a good one.

The Universe laid a truth at my feet today and dared me to pick it up...so I did. I had a moment of clarity that was soooo beautiful and suddenly it all made sense. The past, my present, the future. All one and the same. The truth is, she was gone long before I was told. She didn't betray me, she be...

Damn....Tonight will be the first time in 17 years, I haven't slept with her. Not counting trips and such. She signed for her house and left the same day. I'm wondering how I DON'T' take this personally...:)

Re: Wife of 15 years wants to separate. How do I survive thi

Well, things are moving along as expected. I am signing papers to buy my house next week. She signs for her house the week after, then moves out. Unfortunately I have pretty much drained my reserves... So I'm thinking... "Well she's leaving, whats she going to care if I fire up a few more batches?" ...

Im looking at a VStar classic right now. Might make a nice bike. Rebound relationships never work. I still cant read her very well.

Re: Wife of 15 years wants to separate. How do I survive thi

Actually I think Im at step 10. But anyone who knows humans will tell you, we can always step backwards. Still love her no matter what what...so I guess that makes me weak, a sap, or a romantic...either way, I know what to do until its time to no longer do it. The basics have been laid out. If she c...

ScottishBoy, here is my advice with regard to your current situation... Once you are alone, whether she leaves or you are forced to leave, take time to learn how to take care of yourself... By that I mean learn how be do it all by yourself... I've seen far too many failed rebound relationships that...

Point taken HS. Im not out to ruin anyones life, especially my own. But my lawyer made an excellent point yesterday. He said that she emotionally divorced me months ago if not years.

Re: Wife of 15 years wants to separate. How do I survive thi

Im not sure, but I think its the couple's reaction to loosing the "us" part of the relationship. Sometimes people distill (did you see how I slipped that in there? ;) ) their relationships down the most base level and it becomes a contest to see who can take the most stuff that is left over from the...
