Dear Garter Brides

Have you ever faced a similar situation? What advice would you give this woman for feeling better and moving on?

Dear Garter Brides,

I’m 43 years old and my husband of 25 years has just left me. I had no idea he was going to leave and I am devastated. Both my kids are in college and my family has been my whole life. He’s the only man I ever dated. I don’t feel like getting back into the dating world now, but I hope eventually I will.  What can I do to make myself feel better? I feel such a total failure.
