Going thru a marriage separation.


Recommended Posts

You may have notice I have not been too active on line lately. I just got separated from my wife about two weeks ago. I moved to St. Charles, Illinois which isn’t too far from Greg Parcel. Our councilor decided that a 6 month to 1 year separation was a good idea, so I moved out. We have been having problems with her children who are both bi-polar. A lot of issues have surface since then. We are working on getting back together, but it is going to take time. I guess till then I will have to envy all you enthuse with your Christmas displays until things get patched up or if I have to change my life all together. My hopes are that next year about this time I can have another Christmas prop contest, but we will have to wait and see. But if things don’t pan out, I wish everyone luck and a Merry Christmas.

Mark, I've been there and done that.

It makes it tough during the holidayswith situations like this but remember, you have family here at P.C.to come to as well.

I wish you all the best and hope it works out for the best. Just remember thatwhat ever happens, it was meant to be.

And if time flies too fast to come back before the holidays, Merry Christmas to you too :tree:.

Good Luck,

Tom

Mark,

I am very sorry to hear this. I will be praying for you and hope everything works out is an orderly manner.

And like Tom said, you will always have your P.C. family here and remember, whatever happens - it was meant to be.

I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2007!

If you ever need anything, feel free to contact me by PM or email. I'll do whatever I can to help! :]

Have a great day, Mark!

Mark,

I am sorry to hear of you troubles. I just wanted to show my support by posting. I too have been there. I am now on my second marriage. When I caught my 1st wife cheating I thought I would die, I thought I had failed and I can not take failure. I was so embarrassed. Time helped and I slowly picked up the pieces. My divorce took 2 years and we had no house and no children. During that time I met a beautiful women and 6 years and 3 kids later I am happy. I just wnted to tell my story to let you know whatever happens today there is always the joy that tomorrow can bring. Don't lose hope. If you love her and try your best there is no shame if it does not work out. Just make sure you do what feels right to you.

Good luck,

Brian

Mark,

I'm sorry to hear the news. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers as are your wife and the children. Dealing with bi-polar issues is very hard for everyone. Kudos for going to counseling and trying to work it out.

Blessings,

Sally

Well I was going to say something silly but honestly just take your time and do your best as that is all any of us can do in life. If it doesn't work out you will have the peace of mind knowing that you gave it your all. Good luck from FL.

Mark,

I too have been down that road. My wife and I are spending our 17th Christmas together after almost a 2 year separation. You will know in your heart what to do, all you need to do is listen. God never gives you anything He doesn't think you couldn't handle. You will be in my prayers and I wish you the best of luck. Your PC family will always be here for you.

John

I just wanted to thank everyone for what they said. It really helps. The wife and I are trying to work out our situation and have been going to counseling for a while. I actually have a meeting with her today. The wife told me that she misses me, and that it is really weird not having thousands of lights hanging from the house on Christmas. Not the mention all the stuff I have out on Halloween. I just wanted to say that things are a little more positive and I just again wanted to thank everyone for giving me all your positive vibes. It really helps. Maybe next year I will gear up for Halloween and Christmas again. (Crossing fingers)

Hey Mark,

That's good news! The Simpsons will throw another prayer log on the fire for you and your wife. It always amazes me (in a good way) how strong the pull of shared traditions and memories are. They cut threw all the hustle/bustle and remind us why we fell in love in the first place! So we'll not only cross our fingers but fold our hands!

Here's hoping,

Sally and Roger Simpson
