I left my wife for a woman I met on the train
Since the divorce, my wife, Nunziatina has been in a relationship with Dan, Donna and my new partner's ex-husband. It's strange, to say the least, but we've all made an effort to be friendly for the children's sake. Donna and Nunziatina have even become friends.
A former recruitment specialist, Tom Nash, has explained how he left his wife for a woman he met on the train. Nash is now one of the only male divorce coaches in the UK. He has two children, William, 13, and Sam, 10, with his ex-wife, Nunziatina, and lives near Bedford with his partner, Donna.
Speaking with The Times UK, Tom Nash explained how he left his wife for a woman he met on a train.
In his words, Nunziatina and I met in July 2005 on the Greek island of Zante, where we were both on holiday with friends.
On Christmas Eve, five months after we met, I proposed. We bought a house and got married in September the following year – a big Catholic wedding. We may only have been 23 and 24, but it felt right.
William was born in June 2009. I was unhappy in my job in recruitment and left shortly before he arrived, so I had three months at home with my family.
But over time after the birth of Sam, my career hit a big turnaround and I followed it. However, while my career was taking off, my marriage was struggling. Nunziatina and I had grown apart and were constantly arguing. We were leading separate lives, barely speaking to each other.
In January 2015, I met Donna on the train on my way to work. She was smart, funny, and kind, and we hit it off immediately. We started seeing each other and, within a few months, I had left Nunziatina for her.
The divorce was messy, to say the least. It was painful for both of us, but especially for the children. Nunziatina and I did our best to make it as amicable as possible for their sake, but it was still difficult.
Since the divorce, Nunziatina has been in a relationship with Dan, Donna’s ex-husband. It’s strange, to say the least, but we’ve all made an effort to be friendly for the children’s sake. Donna and Nunziatina have even become friends.
Looking back, I wish I had tried harder to save my marriage, but I also believe that everything happens for a reason. My experience with divorce has made me a better divorce coach and has helped me to better understand and support my clients through their own difficult times.
So, Tom Nash, a former recruitment specialist, left his wife Nunziatina, whom he had been married to for 10 years and with whom he had two children, William and Sam, for a woman he met on the train named Donna.
The divorce was difficult, but Tom has since become a successful divorce coach and all parties involved have made an effort to be friendly for the sake of the children.
