It Took Me a Long Time to Do the Right Thing

It took me decades to do something about the bad marriage that I was in. The older I got, the more uncomfortable I was thinking about spending my remaining years in a bad situation. Age is what made me act to do something about calling a divorce lawyer in Schenectady NY to end my marriage. I had married very young, and I didn’t really know what I wanted back then. I didn’t really know what to look out for and stay away from at that time. Now that I’m older, I know exactly what I want.

I fell in love with my husband when I was only 21 years old. At that age, I didn’t feel like I knew everything there was to know. But it was an age where many other young people were also moving quickly toward marriage. I don’t think it’s because everyone else is doing it, it simply means that you are at a place in life where you date people heavily and automatically think that marrying someone will be the best thing you can do to stay together. That’s where I was back then, and I did not understand yet that I needed to assess what type of person he truly is.

There’s been a lot of emotional abuse from him for me all throughout the years we’ve been together. back when I was born I didn’t even realize. But as I matured, and learned who I really am, I could see it coming from a mile away. He denied it so many times, and would never take any responsibility for it. I knew that a divorce was the only way to find someone better for me so that I can live out the rest of my life happily and peacefully. I wanted a better life with someone else.
