The trial ended up not being a trial. I sat in the hallway while my lawyer and his lawyer talked with the judge in chambers. It seems I am going to be married for a while longer ... if not forever. I tried to tell my husband from the beginning not to get lawyers involved. The same thing we talked about from the beginning is happening now... and we are both in debt up to our eyeballs in attorneys fees. We had no debt going in to this. I really wish he would stop listening to people that know nothing of our unique situation. All of the crap we have been through could have been avoided.
We both pretty much collapsed afterward. I sent my kids on the family vacation with my parents. I just wasn't up for a 6 hour drive and all the chaos that goes along with my whole family together. I love them all dearly.... but my mind and body needed quite time. It was supposed to be for the whole week. But of course, my luck, the trial was scheduled right in the middle of it. My parents had to stay here as witnesses so they only got 2 1/2 days with my sisters instead of a week. :/
