I am a devoted husband of 14 years. We have had a VERY, VERY happy marriage. My wife battled breast cancer throughout almost all of 2011 and into 2012. I battled it with her, every step of the way. I cared for her like she was the only thing in my life. I went to nearly every single appointment and all 16 chemo rounds and all 5 surgeries.
The guys who leave women during cancer are the lowest forms of life on the planet. But, let's not lump all cancer divorces on the guys and point fingers. Satan, or whatever negative influences you believe in, has his was of getting into the most pure of minds and ripping their worlds apart, in order to satisfy some current desire.
I pray that my children will be minimally affected by her decision to want to split up with me. Whenever I bring it up to her, she makes excuses like, "the kids will be fine." This is the same person who a few months ago was VERY ANTI-DIVORCE and excoriated ANY friend or family member who wanted to get a divorce, when there were kids on the table.
THAT is how quickly Cancer can destroy a marriage THE OTHER WAY. The kids and I get tossed aside, while she is playing the Tim McGraw's Live Like You Were Dying, the at-home-version.
I hate cancer more now than ever.
