My divorce was final July 1st. I was married to a lawyer/bishop/zealot/ocpd man. The marriage lasted 25 years. We were separated since Oct. of last year 2011. I was engaged at 19 married at 20 and got pregnant on my honeymoon...due to his belief that birth control was against god’s commandments. Long story short. I was creeped out by the temple. I lived in fear, I felt inadequate and weak. After 4 children and my daughter reaching the age of 15 I decided to make a break. My ex told me that I suffered from depression because I murmured too much when he was a bishop. The final straw was when he told me he would put me through school so I could pay the taxes he failed to pay. To make himself look good he has told all that I have completely abandoned my LDS beliefs. People from the old ward shun me. He is getting remarried this month. He can’t go without sex you know..and that’s the only way to justify his actions.
Everyday, I wake with a new peace and freedom of body, self and mind. I have made the right choice and wish to find others as a support as I do feel alone. I have chosen to give my daughter the opportunity to see the truth, to make decision without fear, to be treated equally and valued as a woman.
