Divorcing Without Kids Has Its Own Set of Struggles

  1. Divorce is a death of a union and death is never easy no matter the set of circumstances. I am sorry for your pain and struggle, HUGS. m

  2. No kids here either. Yes, I have family and friends to talk to, but after work, the house is empty, quiet and I am all alone. The night is the worst time, at least for me. Too much time to think.

    I’m just glad my X left after my children were adults. I chose not to discuss the marriage difficulties with either of them while their mother spun many stories. The truth will reveal itself.

    “Go on dates every night”

    Seriously, I’m a guy getting a date is hard and very very expensive. A date a night is ridiculous sounding to me. To say I hate asking women out would be an understatement. It’s about the most unpleasant activity I can think of.

    I can’t speak for women but I’ve been on one date since I was divorced 17 years ago. I spent 6 months on dating sites to get it. It cost me a weeks pay and was about as enjoyable as a job interview.

    I’ve pretty much given up at this point which means I’ll never be a dad.

    I’d much rather be a single father like most of my friends.

  5. This is me. No kids. It was still horrible… The link on this post, though, doesn’t work :-/

  6. Thanks for following me, been a joy reading some of your posts. I can relate to much of it. So many people said that to me “well atleast you didn’t have kids”, and I wanted to scream at them because I felt like my ability to have a baby was taken away. I’m thankful now seeing how hard it would have been had we had a baby, but also sad when I think of not having one.
