My ex husband has cited in our divorce (which is being dragged out on his part), my mental illness. It shouldn't make any difference. It certainly wasn't the reason we parted.

Has anyone with mental illness been through divorce and what happened?

I've been through a divorce but my mental health wasn't used and, to be fair, we coped with it quite amicably. Have you asked him why, if your mental illness wasn't a cause for your split, he's mentioned it at all? It would bother me.

I agree, this is making him like an uncompassionate git, quite frankly.

I'd be upset if someone did that.
hugs, I'm so sorry.
