Like most couples, my wedding day was wonderful and I was sure that we would be one of those couples who would be celebrating 50 years of marriage surrounded by our many children and grandchildren. Unfortunately, ten years later, I knew we were in trouble. Because we had three children, two who have special needs, I stuck with him another 8 years. I knew then that to save myself and my children, we needed to be away from their dad.
To say I was terrified of getting the divorce is an understatement. I had no idea how I would support my children. I had no idea of what I could expect from my spouse. He had been threatening a few times and that he would hurt me or my children had crossed my mind many times. I made an appointment with an attorney and hoped for the best. As soon as I met him, I knew I was in the right office and over the next few months, he proved again and again that I had chosen the right man for the job.
I didn’t want to be one of those people who constantly called my lawyer. As with any divorce, there were times I just needed to know that soon this would all be over and I would have my life back. If I called him and was in tears, he listened quietly and assured me that for all the pain I was going through at that time, soon I would be happy again. There were even a few times when I called and was so angry I couldn’t speak without yelling. Again, he was calm and compassionate and reminded me that this soon would pass.
He even gave me advice when I called because my ex had “reminded” me he had several guns. Thanks to this amazing man, my children and I survived the divorce and are all much happier now. It didn’t happen overnight, but with counseling and a compassionate, professional, kind lawyer, I can look back and thank God each day for sending him into our lives when I needed him the most.
