Ok this is a no judgement thread. I'll go first ... I was married for 4 years. We split after 3 years, got back together 3 months later then split properly 6 months later. During that time he asked if I'd been with anyone else I said no. Truth is I slept with about 5 men in that time
A 'judgement' is simply an opinion. Whatever we do in life, someone would have done it differently. I wish we put less effort into trying to get people not to 'judge' and more effort into being less concerned what others think - unless someone is being harmed of course.
Been married twice before I was 30. Been engaged 3 times. Left my first dh when dd was 6 months old (he was an abusive twat to be honest).
Spent most of my late teens working in a bar being an alcoholic and having an affair with a married man. Yep I was really horrid and totally stupid.
I have tattoos. I formula fed both my dc from birth because I found the idea of breastfeeding very uncomfortable to me personally. I let my dc watch unlimited tv and screens.
On the flip side.... mumsnet likes me (judging by what they normally like) because I own my own home, I was accepted into Oxford university- didn’t go because I nursed my Gran through terminal bowel cancer at home with me (which prob led to me going completely off the rails as an 18 year old - see above) and I am now tee total and have been for nearly 10 years and I am very outdoorsy now, with super active kids (to balance out the unlimited screens...)
Where do I start... I'm a devout Christian and have a lesbian mother. I was having regular sex at 13. I've been married twice. My disabled daughter went to nursery full time from 2 because I struggled to care for her. There's enough to keep the heckles of the congregation going for a while.
