לבריאת עולם למנין שאנו מנין כאן ב_______ מתא דיתבא על נהר _______
ועל מי מעינות, אנא _______ בן _______, העומד היום ב_______ מתא,
דיתבא על נהר _______ ועל מי מעינות, צביתי ברעות נפשי

_______ בת _______ העומדת היום ב_______ מתא, דיתבא
על נהר _______ועל מי מעינות, דהוית אנתתי
מן קדמת דנא וכדו פטרית ושבקית ותרוכית יתיכי ליכי דיתיהוייין רשאה
ושלטאה בנפשיכי למהך להתנסבא לכל גבר דיתיצבייין, ואנש לא ימחא
בידיכי מן יומא דנן ולעלם, והרי את מותרת לכל אדם,
ודן די יהוי ליכי מנאי ספר תרוכין ואגרת שבוקין וגט פטורין
כדת משה וישראל.

Dear Elishuva,
I fell across what you wrote on here. I am so sad that you would put yourself through all of this. You have the gift of life. Just because it did not work with one man on this planet is no reason to keep being sad and keep only unto yourself. If you want me to contact you, please give me a way to contact you. There are many ways to overcome sadness.

Please don't let your soul die! Live again and enjoy the days you have on this earth. I have no idea why you feel you have to be alone. This just is not true. Grab onto happiness and never let it go!

Dear Elishuva,

I understand completely... I've been separated for about 2 years now and the time has come for a GET. I too thought I would never be happy again, but Torah and Prayer has helped me find the happiness within myself and has taught me to love again, especially myself. This inner peace and love has helped me forgive many people and myself for the troubles in my family. I am closer to my daughters and friendlier with my wife now.

I hope you too find happiness again... Good luck.

I am Divorced
I hated getting divorced it broke my heart in many pieces. That was back in 1993.I never remarried ,he re-married now he has two grown girl, he and I have 2 grown boys. I have never found happiness again. Divorce kills part of your being, I know G-D loves me and I believe He wants me to not be alone the rest of my life. I just don't know how to heal from this great loss. The greatest thing is I forgive both of us for our divorce,and we do get a long good both he and his wife,we have grand children together and sons, they didn't cause our divorce.
