My lawyer’s legal assistant called yesterday to tell me the divorce was final as of February 15th. A bittersweet milestone. Nothing to celebrate except perhaps a better chapter in all our lives.
After yesterday’s post I got an email from a concerned reader/friend wanting to know if my ex and I could work things out. I genuinely appreciate her interest in the well-being of my family. She’s someone who recognizes the tremendous impact a divorce can have on children and their parents. And I’d hate to think that anyone might mistakenly believe I have flippantly moved forward on this decision, taking marriage and the well-being of my children lightly.
So this is just a quick post to say none of the following reasons caused me to file for divorce:
· I was “unfulfilled” in my marriage
· We had “grown apart”
· I thought the grass was greener on the other side
Marriage is a beautiful, sacred thing. And at that point I reached the end of my post because I could explain no further. Thankfully, Carrie from Fully Caffeinated wrote a beautiful post on Tuesday that says everything I was unable to say here.
Sheesh. It’s time for me to start writing about vomit and poo again…
