The Demise of My Marriage Is Complete

Well? It's over. I am officially divorced. What do they call that? Tragic? Perhaps.

Tragedy was when my husband of 13 years busted his head and had a massive brain injury....

Tragedy was when my husband of 14 years didn't fully recover and then turned a little on the violent side.

Tragedy was when my husband of nearly 15 years decided he'd rather screw a bimbo then work on our marriage.

So yes. The end of my marriage is tragic.

But . . . . I spent the weekend with two very single and very gorgeous guys who paid an adequate level of attention to the newly single me ...

So? While tragic, it's a new chapter. I'm only 34 (on Saturday) I've got a whole life ahead of me. Right? Right? Please tell me I'm right . . .

A whole life, yes, and for that fact I'm jealous and shall now commence to pout.

Divorce is the single most terrible thing that you shall ever experience. Now, get on with life, NANCY.

I think if it feels right, and nobody is getting hurt, then it is right. If you ask too many other peeps' opinions, you might get answers you don't necessarily like and which don't jive with your own personal and moral compass (this, as a single [for all intents and purposes], never-married person -- so take it from where it comes). You just make yourself and The Boy happy, don't hurt anyone, and fuck what other people think.

So far, so good.

You are doing exactly what *you* need to do for you and your lovely boy.


Now, let's hear more about these eligible hunks, please.

You are a beautiful, intelligent young woman who would not give up when things are just getting started.

Happy early birthday, youngster... now go get 'em! :D

Yes, it's tragic. Been there, done that.

But, it's also yesterday. Or last week. Or last month. Or something. But, it's not the future. It's over and done with. Hard to accept at times. But...

Enjoy your life. Not your new life. You don't have a new life. You don't have an old life. You have your life. And that's the key: YOUR life.

You held up your end of the vows and the bargain. He changed, by forces that neither of you had any control over. You have a child who adores you. Friends, ditto. You are young, vibrant, and beautiful.

And you deserve a little fun.

You go, girlfriend.

You have a new life. I found a new hubby at 34, had our first child at 38. You will be fine!

What the good Bus Driver said. Or, to answer your question more directly, "Right!!!"

Divorce does indeed suck. Take it from me! But it sounds like you've got a great attitude, and your boy is doing well. You should be fine!

Right indeed... {{hugs}}

Good to hear that you and your boy are still around and moving on with life and wherever it may take the two of you. And this may be a dumb question, but would it be fair to say the knock your husband received on his head a few years back is at least somewhat responsible for his erratic behavior the past few years?

Divorce can be the worst and best thing that ever happens to you.

Whatever happens...don't 'settle' for just anyone. Always remember to put your gorgeous little guy before any gorgeous big guy. But I think you know that.
