Estrangled woman finding it hard to move on after her divorce

Number of View: 225 Hi Gilbert, Thanks so much for your prompt reply. I’m not even sure where to begin, so excuse me for the long story. I was married sometime in 1997 and during my confinement month in 1999, found some inappropriate smses in my husband’s hp. When I queried him about them, he said that they were just pranks from his colleagues. About a year later, I found more smses as well as some internet correspondences with different women. This time when I confronted him, he eventually confessed and blamed me for pushing him into it. I may not have been the model wife but I sure did try my best including supporting the home, him as well as giving him money for his mother, waiting up nights for him to return home… Anyway, we agreed to a divorce. We were estranged for almost 7 years during which he initially and infrequently came back to stay and eventually moved out. We agreed to put off the divorce till later as we had just been enbloc-ed and moved into a new place and could not sell the house unless we were penalized. During all those years, he rarely spent …

Who Should Be Disappointed With Yaw’s Alleged Scandals?

Number of View: 204  Who Should Be Disappointed With Yaw’s Alleged Scandals? The news was out on Wednesday 22 Feb 12 that former Hougang MP and Workers’ Party (WP) member Yaw Shin Leong won’t be appealing his expulsion from WP following news of his alleged scandals in January this year. I recalled that news of his alleged extra-marital affairs broke amid the Chinese New Year celebrations. At that time, I just dispel them as rumours as I have faith in WP under the stewardship of its chief, secretary-general Low Thia Khiang. My father even speculated that maybe a pro-PAP woman spy was out to lead Yaw astray! When Yaw chose to remain silent over the allegations, I just thought that maybe his mentor Low asked him not to make any comments to the media so as not to aggravate matters. However, with the public tipping off the media reporters, more news was revealed that he has at least 2 girlfriends other than his legal wife. He was divorced once and his marriage with Madam Lau, 33, was his second. It was reported that his girlfriends are also married; one of them is a Chinese national while the other is a …
