    I appreciate the support from everyone of you.
    It has been expected for a while, just didn't expect it right now and not this way.
    The most difficult part is I'm not getting to spend Christmas with my granddaughter. She is my world and I love her very much but my soon to be Ex-wife has both my boys on her side and i'm blocked from all communication. I haven't seen my granddaughter in over a month. All I ever wanted was a daughter and I ended up with 2 boys and my wife was done with having kids. So the only hope I had was grand children and I was blessed with the first being a girl.
    Neither one of my boys will even reply to a text.
    This might be TMI but to kind of explain.
    This isn't about another woman, drugs, abuse or alcohol. Over the years we've just grown apart.
    I don't have a choice but to move to Colorado to live with my brother, I can not afford even the mortgage on my house on my SSDI.
    I've had to pinch pennies and sell off all of my bikes to come up with the money to move.
    I'm a very strong willed person and I know everything will work out but it's a difficult road to travel to get there.
    Me and my soon to be Ex have been together since we were in high school and have been married for 23 years.
    The only family I really have right now is my bother. he has been generous enough to take me in until I get back on my feet.
    I think I understand why we're here but I don't understand the isolation and silence from my kids and daughter in-law.
    They all know how close me and my grand daughter are and what she means to me.
    All I can do is wait and hope that things change.
    So thanks to all of you for the support.
    JKent

    Question - Do you know why divorcees are so expensive?

    She’s probably been up to no good,they like to lie to the children and family about us as a smoke screen hiding their own dispicable behavior.

    Having been through a relatively mild divorce (no kids, no lawyers, only 3 years together) The one thing I took away from it is how little other people in my life seemed to care. If it came up in conversation its was kind of telling someone you had an anal fissure that wouldn't heal. You might get a few sympathetic comments but for the most part people didn't want to talk about it and left you feeling like an outsider. Its a weird time and you are kind of on your own but it does get better. Good luck.

    I hear you Brother. I was just layed off a job when she dropped the bomb on me over 5 years back. "I don't love you now, and haven't loved you in years". OUCH!!!.......Same here, no abuse, drugs, cheating, lying, abusive alcohol scene ( as per last message/together over 30 years/married 29) She turned my 2 kids against me at the time ( she said I "wanted" to get laid off/have the Summer off) and they were blinded by her b/s. They came around later, but it was tough/hurt. I missed my dog the most!!! ( dog since put down from old age) Anyway, it will get better. It has for me, but it takes time. I cashed most of my savings/rrsp's and rented a small house, got a McJob at Home Depot ( since quit and retired) and made ends meet. Bless your Brother for being there for you.

    My X hooked up with the guy across the street. ( where I "used" to live...after I left?). He was a bit of an odd duck, but I had a few brew with him off and on over the years, he was divorced, any women he did date he treated poorly. Apparently he treated my X like a queen, but drank himself to death this last Fall. (maybe I dodged a bullett?) Now my kids and I are closer than ever but still live with her, ages 19/26, she's alone ( no partner) and I have a wonderful woman in my life. My kids come over here regular, and love my new g/f. Your grandaughter will be back in your life, just try to be patient. Take the high road and don't insult or be rude to your X. Silence is golden. Cheers, Bob
