When I broke up with Hubby number 1 --Henceforth known as the speed bump, he cited the following reasons why he no longer loved me: Basically he thought I was nuts and talked too much without saying anything significant. Bah, this from a man who needed a bottle of beer to get himself going in the morning and felt that our daughter was perfectly capable of running around diaperless so he could afford beer and smokes. Yes he was mildly drunk when he said all these things but I believed him. He was quite honest when he was drinking. Which meant that he lied constantly when sober. I stated to him that he was a poor example as a husband and that I could do better elsewhere. I took my daughter and left and found someone better.
When I severed our marital ties my first spouse stated that he no longer loved me. In his not so humble opinion, I was in dire need of psychiatric treatment, was dysfunctional and suffered from superfluous wordiness in which I pontificated regularly on matters of no importance to him or anyone else. Hah, this individual needed serious alcoholic libations to get his butt in gear each morning. He was also happy enough to begrudge a little girl diapers to afford his vices of smokes and beer. Yes he did utter this nonsense about alienation of affection for me while being severely intoxicated. This is when he is the most truthful and after his twenty six ounces of veracity he spared no feelings. This lead me to believe that he prevaricated the times he was sober. I pointed out his spousal and parental shortcomings and that I could do much better with someone who appreciated me for me. So to prove the point I took our daughter and left.
