Have you ever realized too late that a breakup was wrong?

My ex-husband and I have been divorced for 3 1/2 yrs and durring the last 18 months I can't help but think it was a HUGE mistake. to make a long story short we basically divorced because of my mom and her controlling ways with me and my children. We had a new house, a nice life and 2 beautiful babies.....now, whenever i look back I feel stupid for leaving and wish I could turn back the clock, then I push the thought out of my head and tell myself I'm stupid for thinking that....am I alone?

I have never left my dh. Thought about it once when we were going through a HORRIBLE time. But we worked it out together and now I am so happy I did not make that descision. ::hugs::

no, ur not. i know a lot of ppl think like that. especially if the break uo wasnt over not loving each other ne more. r u and ur ex still on good terms? if so tell him how u have been feeling, u never know maybe he feels the same way. its never to late. and if things work u will just have to tell ur mom to back off, if u havent already. GOOD LUCK!!!

We have always been on good terms. we talk every day and we are really good friends. I've been dating, he dates...but its not the same. we sometimes even "flirt" and stuff. It still gives me butterflies.....every tuesday we take out daughter to soccer and chat.....liek old times :( no, I havent told him how I feel...I'm worried about that.....

I think a lot of people get divorced without really thinking through the long-term consequences . . . it's sad.  I know my parents did.

I was only 18 when we got married and we were married for 5 1/2 yrs. My mom just kept nailing it into my head that I was too young and it wasnt "worth" it and that I could do better etc....and finally it brain washed me.....and now, I wish I could have just stood up for myself and my marriage

Oh yea, I mean I love my life now but I can't help but thinking at times if I would be better off with my ex. HOWEVER, life is full of choices and "what if's".
