Staying married may have long-term benefits. You can elicit much more sympathy from friends over a bad marriage than you ever can from a good divorce. - P. J. O'Rourke

  • dswishe The thing I miss the most? Our dog. He got her, and now isn't speaking to me. (I was the leaver, so I do understand why) It breaks my heart because she was the one who stayed with me when he was out of town/ out of the country/ didn't care. I know its not the same as a child, but to me, that's my daughter. 10 years ago   *   10 replies
    • ardentdreams Pets become our children. Although you are the leaver, I feel you deserve your dog. Its heart breaking when people split and there's a factor in between like a child or pets. 10 years ago
      • brooklynblue i totally hear that and for some reason the "leaver" isnt entitled to their "half". why is this? #victimculture 10 years ago
        • porcupine I agree, because in some cases the "leaver" is just reacting to an impossible situation. Besides which, everyone knows the game where one person in the relationship intentionally behaves badly to force the other to do the "leaving." 9 years ago
    • JENnI You have every right to your pup! Its crazy how they become a part of our families, but they do! They can be the most dependable source of comfort sometimes. I'd say fight for her- You have the right to! 10 years ago
    • SallyAlexis This breaks my heart. I would be lost without my dog. I sure hope this changes for you :(. 10 years ago
    • KatieA That happened to me years ago, but the dog was his already when I came into the mix. Broke my heart. Try to work out a visit schedule or offer to dog sit so you can continue your relationship with your pup. 10 years ago
    • Karen Kozlow I feel so bad for you... You know, I have several friends who have a dog custody agreement. Especially if one person is going to be traveling, why pay to board the animal or have a caretaker? It's NOT silly to ask for such a thing. It's how the modern world works. 10 years ago
    • Danni girl when your alone so much of the time, you really have no control over becoming attached to the only living being that's always there.... I hate when ppl try to say pets cant mean as much to you as humans/children, because they can an do for some ppl... I feel bad that you are feeling that lose! I hope you find peace... :/ 10 years ago
    • AMpr411 DSWISHE, he doesn't want you to keep her? he doesn't want you to take care of her when he is out of town? I understand your feeling: a dog is as special as a person, if you can try to agree with him that you want to share time to see her, if he is completely irrational or still too hurt because you left him and you see that he is that type of resentful person, I would suggest go to a shelter and safe a doggie's life, they are many in need as you are for you other dog. Good Luck, I know you will find a beautiful dog if your ex doesn't want to cooperate. 10 years ago
    • Unsure I'm so sorry. That is heart breaking 10 years ago
