Preparing for the emotional consequences of soon-to-be divor

Sometimes a spouse (like a job) is just not a good match and requires moving on. I'm preparing for the emotional consequences of soon-to-be divorce. I got sober 7 years ago, but still alcohol has overtaken this marriage including all the lying/denial, disrespect, and harassment that goes with being married to an active alcoholic. Nightly. I am working to emotionally separate myself from the marriage before I file divorce. I didn't sign up for this and don't need to continue to put up with it. That's all for now. I'm a blogger, so there will be more. :D

Happy49, sounds like you have decided on a plan of action. Does he know what it is? Would it be unsafe to tell him what it is? I suppose if you don't love each other any longer a divorce sounds right. I do admire you for staying sober for 7 years. The longest I have ever managed has been around 8 to 12 months. I wonder what would happen if he loved you and the marriage enough to join you in sobriety for at least a few months, so you could both be as rational as possible to sort things out whichever way you want to go. Peace.
