So here's the deal.. I am getting divorced. Not because I want to, but my husband suddenly decided that marriage is not what he's ever wanted in life. He's told me several times that I am the perfect wife FOR SOMEONE WHO WANTS A WIFE... He said that he's always been a loner and having a wife and children makes him feel smothered. He says he wants to give someone else the opportunity to love me and treat me the way I should be loved and treated (THESE WERE HIS WORDS) because he felt like I deserved better than what he could give. So my question is.. Will any other man be interested in me, having two kids from a previous marriage, or am I destined to be alone because I'm all used up?

Are you destined to be alone - just because you're about to be a single mother of 2? Hardly, unless you purposely want that. I married a woman with 2 kids. I was divorced and had one myself. Part of what my current wife looked for, was someone who would not only be a good husband (after all, you're going to live with him - hopefully - a LOT longer than your kids live with you), but also a guy who would be a good father to her kids.
She jokes but is serious about the fact I was the only one that made it to date #3 and beyond.
I'm somewhat annoyed at some of the crass comments a few guys made about you and your situation. You seem like a really nice lady! I'm sorry your husband chose this path. From what i read, he is clueless about what he's throwing away by divorcing you. It's got to hurt you and your kids tremendously!
You're still very young. You have a lot of life left ahead of you. You also sound like a woman worth wanting by a decent guy. Whatever you do, don't lose hope that you'll find a guy who'll love you with his whole heart, cherish you his whole life, and desire you always. It's a dark time in your life now, but it won't stay that way. Have hope.1
