  1. Yep.
    Wouldn’t get married to the male who didn’t disclose to me he had Asperger’s Syndrome, on Autism Spectrum.
    I was going out with others’, & made the worst choice of all……..

    I couldn’t work out why he was so uncommunicative, had no empathy, or sympathy, was very ‘cold’ natured, was very clumsy, & had exceptionally, incredibly poor social skills. He had an academic brain which gave him three Degree’s.

    After 39 years married, & of my ‘carrying’ him in just so many varied situations, & bearing him two children, he ‘dumped’ me, stating in his Divorce Affidavit he wanted to be ‘a SINGLE independent person’.

    Well thanks for wasting two-thirds of my life!

    I’m now too old to meet another male, & have some companionship, at least. This, silly me, was what I thought we’d have into old age, but he decided otherwise, more’s the greatest pity.

    I’m very alone, & lonely, very sad, daughter wasn’t in contact with me for nearly three years, haven’t heard from son in over two years, yet they both have time to be in constant contact with their father, his family, & their friends. They sure as hell don’t want anything to do with me.

    Mum’s on the ‘junk heap’, & will be til the day I fall off this mortal coil.
    The way I feel at the moment, that can’t come quickly enough, really.

    I’ve lost everything I loved, & had. My life of nearly 40 years’ is packed into hundreds of cartons, in storage, the contents of which, will NEVER see light of day again, as this house is VERY tiny, which means I WILL never see all my beautiful things again, especially my beloved books I’d collected!

    I live in a ‘hovel’ now, having come from a huge area’d high-set home, which we’d built, on quarter acre in a beautiful suburb. This place has NO cupboards, except two small ones in kitchen, is low set timber, is in a ‘gully’, which is all I can afford in high Rent.

    Life’s a s@&$ sometimes!

  2. Not judging ,but perhaps 39 years ago he didn’t know he had aspergers/autism. It really wasn’t so readily diagnosed or public then

    • Liz, thank you for your kind words.

      What you say maybe true, but his actions were the same, when we were ‘going out’.
      I certainly knew nothing about AS, & didn’t put 2 & 2 together until about 20 years’ ago, when friend, with medical training, said about the possibility of his having AS.

      He got worse, & worse as time went on, to the point, he believed he’d separated from me ten years before Divorce, by taking his Wedding Ring off, & other weird actions.

      Trouble is, he didn’t bother telling me that we were separated!
      First I heard of it was from my Solicitor, who just said it was the ‘most bizarre’ circumstance he’d ever come across. So that says much.

  3. Sad, but do not think that was the reaction SAS wanted.
