    When the first husband left, did you even entertain the thought that God had something better for you? How blessed have you been through all of this. All the credit card debt and the looting of the accounts is turning out to be a only a down payment on a better life. If someone had said I can give you a happier and better life for only these few dollars, would you have believed it? He is DEFINITELY a keeper like I said before, and so are you. The first a$$ lost all the way around. You have had your revenge.

    • “Down payment on a better life” – I. Love. This!!! Yes! Enthusiastically, yes!

      Each month, when I write the check towards my ex’s debt, I write a reason I’m thankful. The one you just gave me is good enough to be used for the final 9 payments!

      Thank you:)

  2. I agree with Dan 110% he said it better than I ever could. So ditto what Dan said!!
    You are blessed, but I am sure your husband feels blessed also. Good relationships are like that.

  3. LOVE this guy! 🙂 So nice to see real partnerships and “having each other’s back” exists = happiness. Thx for sharing.

  4. Trust is so hard. I have been having these conversations with a friend of mine recently. He asked me ‘would I recognize love if it rang my doorbell?’ and ‘what would I do if it did?”

    The answers are always the same, ‘No’, and ‘I don’t know’. The reason is always the same also, trust.

    Your husband is spectacular. Trusting is hard, but you are getting there and I think I will just follow along with a smile on my face.

  5. Every time my husband helps me and takes care of me when I’m having a health problem, I cry. My ex left because he didn’t want to deal with a sick wife, but my husband takes care of me without even the slightest complaint or hint of resentment. It’s beautiful to be in such a different relationship.

    • So happy for you!

      One of the things that’s been hard for me is that my ex was also dependable and kind and giving. At least to all appearances. He would fix my car without complaint, nurture me when I was sick and help me daily in ways big and small. I’m thankful that he did those things, but it also makes it harder for me to trust in kindness for kindness sake now. I’m learning to believe in it again.

    What a beautiful story. So with all the hard ache your ex created making you develop that difficulty in trust : your husband gave that back to you and that is worth a tear drop or two : the realization that good things always comes to good people. Yay
