I never thought I'd be the mom who gets to figure out how to explain my husband abandoning my children and I.... luckily the kids are youngish. but it's hard when everyone I know met me when he was around and now that he's gone it's awkward to explain it. I don't want the pity, so I just pretend he's still around. people ask about "my husband" and it's awkward when I tell the truth that he's no longer around. not dead, just gone. so I think I'll stick to the lie. I get less awkward looks and a lot less pity. just never thought these would be my shoes....

  • I wouldn't lie, as much as it sucks the truth will eventually come out and you will end up tue bad guy.

  • Im sorry you have to deal with people's garbage. if it's someone you see a lot you should just tell the truth tho cause lies get complicated. sometimes when people are irritating me with pity or anger or whatever their reaction is - i tell everyone what's going on at once, deal with all their trash simultaneously, and move on. maybe you could try that?
