Man recounts how he fled his marriage after many years of unhappiness

A man has recounted how he endured marriage for so many years and finally freed himself after waiting for all his kids grow up and leave home. He also left his properties and cash for his wife who he said he had second thoughts about almost immediately after they got married. According to him,
"I was having second thoughts about the marriage almost immediately. I was thinking about asking for an annulment, but then we got pregnant. So I stuck it out for 20 years.
I did really well for myself during that time. I was making $100,000 per year as a lawyer. That was a lot of money in the sixties. We lived on the finest street in Charlotte. But I was still miserable. So the moment the kids were grown, I took off. I left my wife everything. I left her the house, the bank account, the Mercedes, everything. I didn't even say goodbye. I just dictated a note to my secretary, called the Rolls Royce dealership, and told them to pick up the car at the airport.  I flew to New York with nothing but $800, screaming: Free at last, free at last, free at last!"

Congratulations my friend. I was in the same situation like you but I had to finally run away when my last daughter turned 17 she is now 18. Because men don`t cry people are not aware of how miserable some men are in their marriage. Because women are the ones doing all the talking and they are so loud that people hear them. The breath of freedom is exciting. I wish you good luck in all your future undertakings. Stay blessed.

This is why men cheat.

He should have been cheating

I can cheat for Africa but I am cautious

I pay the women off, so they're employees in a sense

A monogamous marriage can be boring as hell, especially with the wrong person

Uju Phil said...

Crazy if you ask me

Faith Johnson said...

Lesson for all? What lesson is there to learn?. Him having a second thought then,(20 years ago) didn't state nor insinuate that he didn't love her.

Olagbegi Debby said...

He is lying to d world dat d woman was unbearable. He didn't even focus on d positive. He didn't even identify y dy were fighting or reasons behind d divorce. He is giving excuse which has no connection bcos he would ve stated dat. Y do I sense dat didn't made his wife happy dat wat led to it bcos he felt miserable can u imagine.. Unbelievable!!!

Anonymous said...

Hahahaha! Remember mature single girls like us who are pressured by the society daily ooo. Is marriage really that pathetic?! Happy for yu though. LMAO!

Sunset ☀️ said...

How do you know? Are u God? Is because of stupid statements like this that many women still stay in an abusive relationship.

Anonymous said...

Atuo, na you go kill yourself and die. You obviously don't know the importance of family. Tueh!

A lot of people stay in miserable marriage because of their children. Some wait till the kids are independent before leaving the marriage. Fact!

Anonymous said...

Thank you onyx. Ladies seems to carried away by him leaving all his money for her, but that's dumb tho. Everyone deserves happiness but running away from a 20year old marriage and your kids is cowardly

chijioke kingsley said...

ThankGod for ur life o...I understand. being with a horrible partner is like a bondage

chijioke kingsley said...

But wen u hear a news of hw a woman or man died in an abusive relationship, u will be d first to ask why she /he didn't leave d said relationship. Until dia demise...God hates divorce nt d ppler who ddivorce...U nid to listen to Meyes Monroe sermon on relationship problems

Anonymous said...

The difference is, he left her everything, a black man will live his wife without a penny but will be busy giving the girlfriend money. You see the difference. He left didn't left her in poverty.

So, who's the winner and who's the sinner? The kids are grown, and the bad wife keeps everything without breaking a sweat.
