This week’s video is a good one.  It is with Dr. David Hawkins, the author of “Love Lost.” The discussion centers around recovering from a broken marriage.  Dr. Hawkins himself suffered from a traumatic event when his wife of 28 years told him she didn’t love him anymore and asked him to leave. He offers his advice to those who may be suffering from such an event–including the aftermath of an affair.

Watching this video brought to mind our neighbors who ended their 27 year marriage because of an affair.  The wife was back last week clearing out the remainder of her belongings and Linda was able to talk with her about what had transpired.

It turns out that her husband (now ex-husband) and a co-worker who is 20 years younger than him hooked up.  One day he comes home and says he wants a divorce.  A week later the wife is talking to a lawyer and 3 months later they are divorced, sold their home, and moved away.

The kicker is that now the husband has to pay his ex-wife half of his salary, half of his pension, and cover her with insurance.  On top of that, both of his sons are mad as hell and won’t talk to him, and one of them is really taking it badly.  So much so that he has dropped out of college.  Oh and one more thing…the new girlfriend wants to have his baby!  Yikes!  Just what I’m sure he wants being the 54 year-old man that he is.  We’re really curious to see how this all plays out in the future.
