Divorce


I am getting a divorce from a verbally and physically abusive husband. He is trying to wipe me out financially in the divorce settlement.


I need prayers to calm my nerves and not to lose everything I've worked hard to get.

I have been in a verbally abusive relationship for 21 years. He cheated on me repeatedly until I got proof positive that he had an extramarital affair. He produced a child by another woman. I know he will try to sink me financially but I won't let that happen. If it comes right down to it, I will ask for the minimum and just get out of this miserable situation. I am about as loyal as they come and I didn't deserve this. I am afraid, please pray for me.

I am a 43 yr. old woman who just celebrated her 27th anniversary on August 10. My husband and I went out to dinner we exchanged gifts. He treated me very special. On August 23 I asked my husband if there was something he needed to share with me as I had suspitions. He admitted to an affair of nearly a year. He had moved to her house during the week while he was working (telling me he was renting a room from a friend). After I spent an afternoon in prayer we talked for 6 hours and he chose to leave. I told him we could get past this that God could help us make it work, we had too much to throw it away. He's been gone for 1 week now. I'm glad my friend sent me this site. Sites like this have been greatly used by God to help me through this last week and give me the word of God and encouragement I needed to go on. In the middle of the night or anytime. We have 2 children. Our 19 yr. old son is still at home. Our 16 yr. old daughter is married with 2 beautiful children. He thinks because the kids are raised they'll be OK. He has no idea how they are hurting. He will be meeting with them on Sat. I pray that they will not hold back and they will let him know how important it is to them that their family be together. Help him to see their hurt and pain. Allow God to speak to him and for him to receive and act on it. My husband is a christian. I told him that God would not honor this relationship and he would always wonder when she would cheat on him and visa versa. She new he was married when the relationship began and she wants him to divorce me and marry her. The way my husband deals with things is by not thinking about it, pray that he’ll think about what he’s doing, remember regardless he still has to answer to God and that he would stop blocking God and he speaks to him and he would be receptive to all the advice and love from our christian friends and family. I pray that God would remove the negative thoughts he is digging up about me and replace them with good memories. I pray that everytime he looks at her or touches her that he would think of me and remember a special time we've shared. I pray that everytime he sees or thinks about her grown children or grandchildren that he'll think about his and what he's doing to them. Sunday morning our 6 yr. old granddaughter got saved. I'm praising God for her salvation and she is a very special, sensitive girl who can melt her pawpaw. I don't think it's an accident that she was saved in the midst of this. She will be told that he moved out prior to seeing him please pray that she will melt him and God will break him and bring him home and heal our marriage. He doesn’t want to face any of our friends or family, please pray that he’ll believe that they’ll forgive him and stop using that excuse. Pray that God would remove the hold that Satan has placed between him and this woman.May God bless each and everyone who is going through a tough time. May your marriage be healed. It helps to know you have others to share with.My prayers are with you all God bless you. God never leaves us. He's the closest friend we'll ever have. God will be my husband until he brings mine home and heals my marriage.

I have just said a brief and short prayer for each of you. It is truly a sad situation when so many relationships are failing in our nation. I too am going through a divorce. No children, and only married for almost 2 years. My wife has chosen her glamerous traveling job over our marriage. She returned two weeks ago, 2 weeks before the divorce date, and asked to go back to counseling and to start working on things. Gladly I accepted but two days later found many emails to two other men whom she is having relations with. She says I misunderstood the emails but there is not misunderstanding when someone tells another they love them and can't wait to see them that night. Now that I am stepping away I can see how mentally abusive she was over me. I need prayer to help me find the strength to move on with my life and to make it through each day. I know I will make it but my heart and life are completely right now. Thank you and I will pray for you as well. J.

I have recently split from my husband after six years. We have one child who is five. My prayers everynight are for direction and strength, and to allow the guilt and hurt to subside. My husband is a good man, but a very bad communicator and has now found very dark and non-spiritual freinds, I pray that his heart be softened and he be able to speak with ease. That he may also find a spiritual mentor to show him the light of Christ. I filed for divorce and am very saddened, this is not how my faith intended it to be. Thank you for everything.

I have recently divorced my emotionally and verbally abusive husband after 5 years. We were separated two years before the divorce was final. I found out he was having an affair, so I left. He tortured me for years about me being overweight. After I left him, I lost 60 lbs. Then I met the other woman, she is bigger than I am. I just found out recently that they are not together because she was cheating on him. All this can seem like good for him, but I still feel sorry for him. I still love him,too. I am upset about that. He treated me awful throughout our entire marriage, but I still dream of him coming back admitting he was wrong and asking for forgiveness. We don't speak to each other at all. I miss his friendship, but I am so angry at him for taking my love in vain. I am a christian, but he is not. I pray every day to get over him, but I still hurt. I have since met a wonderful, christian man who is also going thru a divorce from an ungrateful woman. He is a godsend. But,I can't seem to focus on this relationship. I am considering relocating to get away from my problems, but I don't want to leave my new friend. It will hurt him. Please pray that I heal and don't hurt anyone in the process.

My wife packed her clothing and left a devistated husband and three beautiful teenage children just 1 month ago. She has been verbally abusive to them and me. I have filed for divorce. I still love her, but I will not except her back after she has been staying with another man. It has been going on for 6 months or more. It is a guy where I work. She swears they are just friends yet she sleeps there every night alone with him. This is my burden.
I pray for all here who must go through the denial, grief, anger, and eventually exceptance of divorce. Do not deny your greif. Do not expect reunion. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones. Remember the two great commandments...love god...and love your neighbor. The person that has been your closest neighbor is now a source of pain, jealosy and anger. Do not embrace these emotions. ..give them to god everyday. We are given a fresh start each morning. Write letters, exercise, walk, garden, read, pray, try new things...thank god for the time you have had and the time you will have. Pray for your other...they need it as you need to do it. Bless those who spitefully use you. God bless you all...he wants you to have joy. Choose life. Peaceful rest to you.

I pray that you let go of the material things. They are not worth it. We have experienced the worst hurt a person can go through. The rejection is awful. But, God has a plan. Thank God you still have your life. I pray for the Holy Spirit to minister to you, to comfort you and give you strength and also peace.

I too pray that all of you will find closure and peace in your respective situations. I have posted a prayer circle regarding my own situation. It is under W. Sally. My situation is that I am seeking to divorce my husband after almost 15 years of marriage. I have 2 children that frankly are afraid of him and do not like him. He has been verbally, emotionally, and physically abusive to me and the kids. Furthermore, I found evidence at least 8 years ago that he was emailing men to solicit sex. I confronted him then and he denied any wrongdoing stating he was just "fooling around" in chat rooms and such. Over the years I have found further evidence to support his homosexuality including pictures on his screen name, emails, cell phone messages, etc. He denies that he is gay but admits to participating in the activity on the internet still (most recently less than a month ago) insisting he is just fooling around. I told him I was going to file for divorce. He pleaded with me (quite frankly it was a dramatic and phony display) not to do it. I wasn't in a position financially to see a lawyer but recently I have improve on that situation. I am in fear because my new job I won't be home until after 5 p.m. and I am afraid once I file and he is served papers that he will harm or try to take my kids. They are ages 10 and almost 13 so they are older, but that doesn't mean he won't try something. Also, I don't know what to expect if he contests the divorce. I have lots of documentation of the incidences of abuse and the gay stuff. I printed out emails and pics that he had on his screen name as he didn't fully sign off one day and I happen to sit down to the computer and there I found all this stuff. There were also pics that were not on the internet but in a file in "My Documents" under his name. Pretty hard evidence in my opinion. Nevertheless, I do have other grounds for divorce as well. I expect to have to sell my house and I am at peace with that. I just want closure to this and move on and someday be able to trust another man again. I want love and honesty and I thought my husband would be that way as he professed from the very beginning that he was a Christian and he went to a Pentecostal Church. All I can say is that I have learned that just because someone says they are a Christian and go to church doesn't make them one. Please pray for me that this will resolve as quickly as possible as my emotions can't take much more. I have suffered this long only because I didn't feel I had the confidence in myself to go it alone and I was afraid. I was always very heavy and had gastric bypass surgery in Feb. I lost over 85 lbs. and I look and feel so much better. This has boosted my confidence and helped me have the energy to find a better job and move forward with plans to divorce. I will continue to pray for all of you and I know what you are going through. God Bless!
