11 People Share What It’s Like To Be The Person Who Ruined A Marriage

Anyone who has ever attempted marriage – successfully, unsuccessfully, or somewhere in between – knows that there’s nothing easy about it. There’s a lot of compromise, plenty of surprises, and the bottom line is just that sometimes when people grow over a long period of time their paths diverge instead of moving closer together.

That said, a third (or fourth) party never helps matters, and many a relationship has been doomed by one or both parties being distracted by other people.

These 11 folks are the other people, though, so if you’re curious what it’s like to be that person, they’re telling all below.

11. Sounds like someone needs a therapist.

Or some serious navel-gazing time.

Time to take another and get help.

He makes his own big boy decisions, right?

I feel like it’s never like they think.

Unless they want to be with her, too.

1. A small and sad story.

Although maybe it’s a happy one for one of them. Who knows?

I think things like this are so interesting. Just being able to peek behind the curtain of someone else’s thoughts is fascinating.
