DH got a job where he'll be working out-of-town at night which means I'll be essentially a single parent Sunday night thru Thursday night. For those of you that do this regularly and have kids, how did your kids react to the other parent being gone? I do much of the care in the evenings anyway so that won't change.
How did you deal with your spouse being gone? For me, it'll be nice not having to worry about what he wants for dinner or what he wants to watch on tv but I know I'll miss seeing him and talking to him when I get home from work. I know he'll call me during the day when he can but it's not the same.
He worked out-of-town one night last week and I discovered I can't sleep when it's too quiet (he has a CPAP machine that he wears at night) so I stole DS' sound machine (DS was at grandma's for the night).View Thread
I don't think anyone goes into marriage thinking they'd get divorced. While I've never been divorced, I'm pretty sure your feelings are normal.
I've heard one thing to do is to write down the positive things about your soon-to-be ex. I'm sure there are some. This is not to make you feel bad about divorcing him but to help you look for the same good qualities in someone else.
I'd wait before starting to seriously date again. Now's the time for you to figure out what you want and don't want in a relationship.View Thread

Unless you and your husband were virgins, it's possible either you or your husband had herpes before you even met. Some people never have symptoms and don't know they have it. If I'm not mistaken, there is no reliable test for men unless they actually are having an outbreak.View Thread
