Seperated dating Pinoy chat liberated

When we’re newly in love, most of us seem to find everything endearing.

But now it’s what’s really standing in the way of our divorce: He doesn't have the financial means to divorce me—he doesn’t even have the financial means to live and refuses to find a proper job.

We started talking, then texting, and he told me straight-up that he'd been separated for six months. I would text him something funny to start off the day, and we would spend the majority of the day talking about what made each other tick. We shared the little things, the childhood things, the adult things, the big things.

He was also recently separated, had a son, and came with some baggage. He would go to work in the morning, while I languidly pulled myself from sleep and into my home office. One thing is true, though: he was way more to me than just a married man.

This was a source of contention once that love-high wore off and I realized that, as the breadwinner of our relationship, no amount of endearment would change the fact that he was treating me like his personal bank.

So on the few occasions that I admitted that I’m married but separated, I’ve had to get into the details of why this is the case.

If things evolved to a point where it looked like the facts would be necessary, I’d reveal them then and only then.

While no one gets divorced overnight (as if it just magically happens when you realize you never want to see that person again), in our case it’s taking longer than it should.I don’t think of my marriage as a failure, as some might think of their own, but I do think of myself as having been blind, and I only have myself to blame.I guess it’s from there that the embarrassment stems: I should have better. It was an in-between area that could have only gone one of two ways. I guess you could say the pieces of the puzzle just didn't fit at the time.Unless otherwise indicated, all content is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License.
