Two days til my divorce

I've got about 45 hours left to be a married woman. Then I'll be divorced and single. It'll be a new adventure that I'm looking forward to, although the end of the marriage is also sad. Right on cue I'm also feeling anger at my post-husband today, but that's probably a psychological coping mechanism. It's too hard to part from someone you love, so we often vilify our spouses as we get closer to the court date. It makes it easier to end what we expected to last longer.

Divorce has a long and tough process, and knowing that it will be finish soon is a total relief. How was it? I hope everything has been settled fairly for the both of you. And I wish you best of luck on your new ventures.

Thanks, Christine. How was it? More recent posts describe the actual court date, but in general I'm doing pretty well. My post-husband -- now my ex-husband -- and I are friends and talk on the phone a few times a week. I'm working my way to financial solvency. Things are mostly good. Depressive symptoms come and go, but that's always true for me.

Hang in there, Regina. I know it’s going to be a tough ride for you. Divorce is never an easy journey. It’s not going to be easy, but I know you’ll make it. Let’s just look at it on a brighter note. Welcome back to the single world! Haha! :)
