There were so many times that I would wake up not knowing how I was going to face the day.
But then I'd remember my children—and the responsibility I had to them—and I did what I needed to do.

Then one day I began the process of discovering my husband's long-standing affair—with someone I knew very well. And though I met and married a wonderful man— and have been married for over 10 years—the hurt and pain of that time is still there.

Some even go to the extent of hiring a private detective just to satisfy their paranoia."It's too bad you have children—you'll always be connected because of them."This was very painful to hear.My kids were often the singular reason that I got out of bed many mornings following my divorce.
