    This is one heck of post. So sorry for what you went through. You are very strong and I’m so glad you found someone so good for you. I didn’t experience all the bad things at church. My experience has been good. I’m blessed. I will though, always speak up for people like us. The truth is that there is no stigma of divorce for people like us who are innocent. At least there shouldn’t be. I won’t let there be in my own mind. Upward and onward!

      I disagree that there’s no stigma for the innocent. People in my old ward decided there were two sides to every story so they would stay out of it. The problem was, my ex had plenty of time to get his lies out, while I was so busy trying to do what was necessary despite having to deal with the abuse that I didn’t have time to spread the truth around. So nobody ever heard the “other side”. Thanks to tactics like that, there are plenty of people who stigmatize the innocent just because they believe that if the wronged party were truly innocent they’d have protested more.

    I was so glad to read this post! It gives me hope that maybe I can find someone who won’t abuse me like my ex did, and I won’t have to be alone the rest of my life. Though being alone for the rest of my life would be preferable to what I had.
