Great one time, pretty awful another time. But I'm not sure if any of the stuff that happened in my relationships was due to them not having their fathers around.

Both were terribly emotionally damaged men who I had a huge amount of compassion for. Childhood trauma like that actually has the ability to destroy grey matter in the brain. Both threatened to kill themselves because of something I did, because they didn't know how to deal with their emotions and never sought professional help. I tried very hard to show them love but both essentially felt like they didn't deserve it. The one I was with for 5 years we split up about 3 years ago , is still a close friend of mine and since our split he has started going to a psychologist and has made leaps and bounds in his emotional state.

He's apologised for everything and really been over the top flattering about how much of an "amazing" person he thinks I am. He has a lovely girlfriend now and is finally able to understand that he deserves love too. It's uncanny how similar they were I am now sort of seeing a guy who lost his father when he was 3. His mother and father were still married when his father died unexpectedly. He does not seem to have any of the same emotional problems of my exes. In fact he is very good at talking about his feelings and processing it all. I know he has had some struggles because of his relationship with his step-dad, but there's just nothing like a father choosing to abandon his children to cause deep emotional grief.

Let them know that their fathers’ failures aren’t their faults.

As a 19 year old without a father figure in my life. This describes me perfectly i just returned home from a hospital stay for psychiatric help and this describes me perfectly and i have appoligized so many times to my lovely girl friend of three years.

  • But I keep recognizing its gross face every time I flip over some marriage rock from my past, looking for clues. I wasn't ready to be a husband when I got married and it wasn't because we didn't wait nine years and live together in some crappy apartment for a long stretch before we "just knew" we were finally ready for holy matrimony.

    Is that me making crap up?

    What It's Really Like To Marry A Fatherless Son

    Am I creating some kind of fatherly fairy tale that doesn't actually ever go down like that? I don't think so. I'm not saying you absolutely HAVE to have a dad in your life to end up being a badass husband. You probably know a few fellows who never had a good father in their lives but turned out to be fine spouses, loving and hardworking and good listeners.

    Sometimes, though, women end up marrying guys like me and there are a lot of me's out there. I was raised by a single mom and she loved the hell out of me. Then I had a stepdad from the time I was 17 and he loved the hell out of me, too. But I still missed out on something monumental and beautiful. I brought nothing to the table when it came to manhood. I'd had to learn it all on my own and I sucked at a lot of that.


    I brought the opposite. I was a self-taught emotional rapscallion street rat. I wanted to love someone forever and I wanted her to love me forever and I thought the vows meant that was the deal. I was living on the surface of things because that's all I'd ever known.

    It had to be hard to be married to a guy who had so much about him that was attractive and cool and engaging, but who ended up having no idea how to navigate marriage. The divorce wasn't all my fault, of course, but I can look you in the eye today and tell you I was out of my element when it came to true love. And I know my lack of a father was a big reason why.

    All I can do now is accept that and try to turn it all around.
