To His Ex Wife, by Susan Sosbe

To His Ex Wife,

Your biggest mistake was my greatest gain. I’m glad you were foolish enough to think there was something out there better than him. The grass wasn’t really greener though, was it?

Because of your lies, cheating and deception, he was free of you when I found him. He was completely free of you. He doesn’t hate you, did you know that? He doesn’t care enough to hate you. You are just something that was… past tense, nothing more. You are nothing more than a case of bad judgment. You are also a fool, and I’m glad.

When I found him, it was like finding a piece of me that I had been missing. He is what I have been searching for…and you made it all possible.

If you did any damage at all, it was souring his thoughts on marriage. But we’re okay with that… just so you know. Maybe he’s given up on marriage, but he hasn’t given up on love. And as much as I would love to be his wife, I don’t need that ring to know he loves me. He’s the one I want to be with, now and forever.

If he hurt at all when you left, I am sorry for that. But I am not sorry you left. What I can’t understand is why you left. What is it that you thought you had found? What was it that you thought was better than what you had? I wonder if you even realized how good a man he really is. I don’t think you did. If you had realized that, you wouldn’t have left. You couldn’t have left.
But now that you’re gone, he’s mine… and I’m not letting go.

Loving Him Always

    You tell her, Susan!

    Well written letter with a great message! My husband likes to say that he needs to send my ex-husband a fruit basket to thank him for his stupidity.

    What a beautifully written letter, Susan. I feel the same way about my husband’s ex-wife. I don’t understand her, but I don’t hate her either. I’m simply grateful that he’s mine now!

    shut it! yOU Don’t have a clue, yet. If you knew you wouldn’t be with him now, time goes by and in time, just as I had , you will see.
    look who is the fool., YOU ARE.

  12. Amy says:

    I have a question. How do you know he won’t leave you for someone else? How do you know it was all her? If a man says his ex did something wrong, chances are it’s he that messed up.

    Just sayin’

  13. admin says:

    Amy, are you saying women can’t make mistakes in relationships too? I know men who are good, honest, decent men who have been screwed over by devious, deceitful women. It’s not just the women of the world who get screwed in bad relationships. Men hurt sometimes too!
