Memories of the good times haunt woman after divorce
DEAR ABBY: I was married to my husband for 29 years. We were separated off and on more than 10 of those years. We were both in other relationships but would reconnect for months and sometimes years. Then, because our lifestyles are so different, we would split up again.
I divorced him two years ago, but we see each other off and on as friends. I haven’t been in a relationship since our divorce because I still love him. He couldn’t stop the street life, and I got tired of living on the edge with him.
He’s now in church, off drugs. He has gained back some weight and looks like the man I first fell in love with. I tell him every time I see him that I still love him, but he doesn’t believe me and acts like he hates me. We have a 27-year-old daughter he loves and sees.
