My world just crumbled...

A strange place to post something like this I know, but at the moment I don't know where I am... my wife just ended our marriage today... it looks like I could lose everything...and I'm feeling more alone than I have ever done.. I wish there was a punchline to this story but unfortunately there isn't one, neither is there a happy ending... sorry to bring a sad emotion to the forum but I just needed to put it somewhere..:upset:

bad news...

Father,...don't know your situation as regards children etc..but like people say,things will get better,but just remember being a singleton doesn't have to be a constant whirl of drink and stuffing your face.....and watch out for t**ts saying 'I thought you priests couldn't marry anyway':mad::wacko:

stay strong Father

Sad news this is Father Jack! But you know what they say and I firmly believe in it - WHAT DOESN'T KILL YOU MAKES YOU STRONGER!! Don't give in to sorrow or retribution. Just try to keep your head up and keep it civilised.

You are posting a very personal note on a forum full of strangers but it's obvious everyone here is offering their sincere support and empathy.

Look forward to better days to come!!!

Sorry to hear it mate ..... just remember you lived your life just fine before you met her ...and so you will again in future.

Things often happen for a reason ... you may be hurting bad right now .....but in time you will probably find someone better. :winkie:

FatherJ sorry to hear your news

I understand that for now you cannot see beyond what is happening.  But I know for sure you will see the other side, that dark void within you will slowly fill, and you will feel complete again....!  

My thoughts are with you, don't feel alone we are here if you need to reach out to someone.

I've been where you are, and I won't tell you it doesn't suck big time.




You will come through it and, I have no doubt, come through it a stronger person, which in turn will ensure you have a better understanding of who you are and what you want.


One of the worst things is the feeling that you're alone.  When I split with my wife, friendship, support and someone to listen to where probably the things I missed most, as our 'joint' friends either sided with her or didn't want to 'get involved'.


So, as others have said, there are plenty of people on here who will be happy to listen without agenda.


Take care

to here this Jack, but is it deffinitely final, no chance of reconcilliation (if that's what you want)?

I know this won't mean alot at the minute but you will pick yourself up and while it may take some time you will get there mate. Life will seem shit at the minute but in the end things always sort themselves out - whether it gives you a new lease of life or whatever.
