Hi 25,

It's adding insult to injury: selling a house that won't sell after all the emotional upheaval.  But like so much else, it's beyond your control.  It will sell eventually and until then, you are somewhat in limbo. 

I like Velika's communication strategies. Btw your h has been a real monster from the beginning, much worse than most.  Sounds like the ow is a good match--so childish.  Doesn't much sound like happy families does it?

Anyway you're not alone if you are with us. ;)

Send TT a private message.  She'll get it sooner or later.

Hi 25. Sorry your not doing so well

" i have spent the whole of 2017 trying to sell the marriage home - we had a buyer in april 2017 but they pulled out and the viewings over the summer in the UK have been extremely slow due to brexit, political climate, overpriced market etc
i just feel so trapped and every corner of the house reminds me of him."

This could be me. W left me, the kids, her dogs a cat and 2 snakes in our home.
We are trying to sell but its too big for most.
Her ghost is everywhere. Ive taken down most pics but some are still up because of the viewings. W helps clean for a couple of hours on the day before viewings. Id rather she wouldn't but its too much for me. Last Sunday I left after an hour, this Sunday I may not be home when she comes. I dont want to look into her lying eyes and crocodile smile...

Just catching up with you. I am sorry you are feeling so bad. I guess the kids are back at school now?

Maybe now the house will sell, it is always difficult to sell over the summer holidays.

I remember that you have faith, is your church family able to help you in these feelings of isolation? Is there something you can volunteer in? It doesn't have to take up a lot of time because I am sure you have your hands full with the kids when they are home, just something to help you take your focus off your own situation for a while.

My job has always been a great distraction and I have some private ESL students too, which is an even greater diversion in my week, I come away from their class light and refereshed - it is a time in which I don't even think about my situation!

Velika's pointers for communication are great! steer away from negative talk :)

Thank you so so much for the replies. It really means a great deal to me and I wish I could "in person " thank everybody who posted on this thread. We are divorced, I did not want it, still don't to this day but genuinely I feel he gave me no choice. He asked me to divorce him via solicitors letter on grounds of adultery. That was the only tacit admission of adultery he has ever made to me. He is now engaged to OW (11 years younger than him) and living over an hours drive from us just down the road from OW's mother. They have bought the house yet we have not sold the family home so he afforded that within proceeds from this house. They are engaged and OW regularly talks about having children with my daughter aged 8. Feels so inappropriate. Just today an email volley where he said I was trying to paint him as "evil" in the village we live in (I am not) but I fact it is me who is an "evil" mother for failing to tell him about one of my daughters friends birthday parties he would need to take her to (it is his weekend). I did not fail to tell him, I told the mum in question his email address which she then got slightly wrong so he only just got notification about it. His main driver is that the children say to me regularly "daddy doesn't care about us" unprompted by me , and I think he knows they have worked that out and blames me. I don't prompt their thinking that although I am unsurprised they think that. I just ask him not to contact me. I say " don't contact me". Is that wrong?

On 2 September my ex husband best friend from university and his wife visited me for afternoon tea. The children were away. They expressed their total bemusement that my ex husband has totally cut them off since he left me north withstanding that they have tried to keep in touch with my ex husban.  When my ex husband has my children to stay ( aged 7 and 8 ) he calls my son a "lunatic" and tells my son he is "weird". I am in total denial about how emotionally damaging this must be to the children.
Notwithstanding that OW says she is going to have children with my ex I wouldn't be surprised if they don't because basically my ex does not like children and that is obvious to most people who meet him
