Your life was not destroyed, but the life of a man falsely convicted of rape is. Many men would have nothing to lose.
I'm by no means trying to belittle the effects of false rape allegations by saying my life was destroyed by domestic abuse allegations. I know the severity is much different, and I apologize if you took offence.
My point was that I had a promising career in the correctional field which is now dead in the water due to the fact I'm seen as a possible wife beater, alcoholic, drug addict, child beater, and steroid abuser.
My ex wife left no stone unturned in her allegations, anything she could think of, she added to her claims. So, even though my friends, co-workers, and supervisors claim to believe me, the specter of those allegations remains and thier effects reverberate even today.
