How do you feel this morning? Think lots of people do feel a bit numb at first.

Best wishes for a happy future.

It's strange, like I want to sing and dance about it but I'm a little but gutted? God know why, the things he's done I hate him for it. 13 yrs is a massive part of my life, almost all my adult life and it's over with a piece I paper. Strange feeling.

I felt relieved but sad too. Sad because I meant the vows I made on my wedding day and I did my utmost to make it work and he turned out to be a shit bag so I had no alternative but to divorce him. Sad about choosing him I suppose because he let me down.

Yes! And sad because when I left he turned out to be someone who I didn't even know, I guess looking back the hurt made him like that. They do say you learn more about a person at the end of a relationship than you do the whole time you're together.

It is weird and sad and a relief all at once.

I got mine almost a year ago now and although I was expecting it, seeing the words "marriage dissolved" on a sheet on A4 had a finality and sadness to it I hadn't expected. I saw the details of our wedding day & remembered back to another me and a time where I felt so happy and full of hope about the future. The memory almost didn't feel real as I stood there in my hallway with the paper in my hand.

I married for life and loved him very much but as much as I hoped it would be different with me (wife number 3), it turned out he still couldn't keep it in his pants after all.

So, I read the paper, filed it away and left for work. I haven't looked at it since.
