Hello! I'm so glad to have found others in a similar situation. I was in a loveless marriage for 17 years & ended it myself 9 months ago. At age 45, I had no clue what was in store for my future. I have a 10 yr old daughter & it was for her sake that I decided to get out. After meeting several guys my own age I reluctantly accepted an online chat w/a ym. He's 20 yrs younger & I thought what could we possibly have in common. Actually quite a lot! It's nice to finally have someone listen & care about my happiness. My divorce is not final, and until it is I don't want to get my daughter involved. I've met his family, who are quite religious, and they are accepting of the relationship. I never imagined that I could have found someone so wonderful! The ex was 48 and acted like a teenager so WHO CARES about a 20 yr gap!
