Men going through a divorce or dealing with its various components won’t want to miss out on the chance to talk with other men in the same situation.
The newly re-launched forum, now available at the Men’s Divorce website, provides a great opportunity for men dealing with numerous divorce-related issues to connect with others, ask their questions, help others and more.
Set up in the same basic format as the original DadsDivorce forum, the new one targets a wider group of men (father, those who have not yet had kids, etc.) and features the stylish new blue-and-green theme and clean design.
DadsDivorce readers are encouraged to check out the forum and contribute helpful responses, post their own questions or concerns and share their experiences.

No kids here…grown…I got married for the First time 12 years ago. My wife is bipolar, manic depressant who seems to live to argue and guilt trip me…we bought a farm 8 years ago whose value has rapidly increased….she has angerly ordered me to Divorce her a number of times and I am about ready to finally copitulate….two attorneys I have spoken to tell me that equity increase should net me about $125,000….the title is in her name and she has made all payments but that should not matter in Oregon…I want to divorce her but am a bit afraid for my safety as I am 72 and she is 10 years younger with big manly daughters living here…and More over I’m concerned about how long the process could take…anyone with similar experiences?
Just found out wife has been having an affair. The emotions in my head are all over the place. Lost. She’s gone with him, fine but why do I feel this way? I’m glad she is gone but still have all these crazy feelings that are all over the place.
I went through a similar divorce. I was married for 11 years. Her and I had differences that were too deep to resolve. One day, I discovered she was having an unusual relationship with two men. When I discovered hidden names under phone numbers and love letters, I decided to let go of the marriage. I am happy that I got divorced but I get my ups and downs (real bad). Plus with kids, it is difficult.
I’ve been there. Your thoughts and feelings are completely rational. Mad, angry, sad, worried, jealous….you name it, I thought it.
I exercised, shared my feelings with those I could trust and looked to other new resources to help manage the pain inside.
My family was destroyed and I understood I was mad and grieving. I accepted the reality of my new situation and decided to forgive. I have not forgotten, but I would rather love and cherish the days with my children rather than to be hostage from warfare I never wanted or saw coming.
I wish you wellness and happiness. It’s only been a year and I still look to the better days ahead. This isn’t easy. Be strong, share your experiences, listen to others and take one breath at a time. I’m doing it. You can do it.
I really enjoyed your comment. Sounds like you are living in the solution rather than the problem. The only part of my separation is the moms’ parental alignment, with our 11-year-old. My daughter doesn’t even want to visit me often and when she does its brief. She is ready to have her first period and her mom has been going through the change for a year now. I try hard to look at what I have done wrong in the marriage rather than obsess in my mind about her parental alignment technique. I have a high anxiety disorder and its super hard to stay balanced when I’m with her mom. She knows what makes me anxious and bushes those buttons. I have a therapist and am on mood stabilizers, exercise etc. We were married 19 years. Now that I’ve seen my wife’s true colors it’s easy to detach from her but she is pushing my daughter against me.
When it came to covering the kids my health insurance was ridiculously expensive to cover an employee plus children. My coverage is good, but expensive. My ex’s health insurance was better and very inexpensive to cover the kids. Common sense dictated that she cover the kids at her expense given what I pay in child support. I would suggest do what is best for the kids. I certainly understand your concern with not trusting your ex. I have been divorced 7 years. If you both decide for your ex to cover the girls health insurance, discuss it thoroughly, establish and document the change including having the decree modified. Good luck.
I cover my 2 girls health ins. My ex asked if she could cover there health ins. She went to a lawyer and the decree will get changed if I agree. She said she wasn’t going to raise my child support any she just wanted to cover there ins. because she can get better coverage. Should I agree to this or is she trying to set me up for something down the road? I just don’t trust her
