Just told OH I'm leaving him - a strange sort of euphoria.

This feels odd to even post about. OH and I have had issues in our relationship for a while now. We have a 20 month old DD. When DD was much younger, he kissed another woman. I was too weak to walk away. He was barely apologetic. We've been going through the motions ever since.
He's always been a fibber. Nothing outrageous that I know of, but enough little things that finally equal a big thing. I feel stronger now. I've finally had enough. I've agonised all day about telling him that its the end of the road for us. Felt all out of sorts etc. His response? 'Can we tell people it was mutual?'
I felt sad for all of 10 minutes. Now I can't wipe the smile off my face. I know it won't feel like this all the time. I'm taking a big step. But right now it feels really really good.

Wow, his response certainly confirms it was the right decision! Well done and good luck for the future.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I forgot to add he also said 'well that was quicker than I thought it would be' and 'I don't have anything to say'. What a charmer. What a waste of my time.

Believe me, it's a lot easier when oh wants to split too - be grateful to your gods and keep it amicable. He's going to be dds dad forever and that means you are going to be connected like it or not.

But we'll done for doing what seems to be the right thing for both of you.
