Getting over it.

So, it's been a year since husband left totally out of the blue and I've been up and down and inside out.
I thought he was the love of my life and we'd been together for around 20 years. I was distraught, all my plans for the future and retirement destroyed in one fell swoop. We are just about to finalise the divorce.
Yesterday I found out that for the last few years he's been shagging my "friend", what an awful betrayal.
I was just about to get all fired up about it when I realised I actually couldn't care less.
I couldn't find a single "duck" to give.
Looks like I'm over him - yipee smile I am happy, content, life is good.

Brilliant to hear! You are free of him! She is welcome to him, but I guess she will always have one eye on him because she knows how deceitful he can be. Not your worry anymore! You are free. Best wishes!

Yes, you've got to the point where they've finally managed to kill off all of the tiniest bit of love you had left.
It's a very freeing thing, isn't it?
Now you can move on, and wish them the best of luck with it all because they'll probably need it.

Brilliant Irritated
I was typing out a long response to this having seen my exH out with the gf he cheated on me with last week and deleted it because I realised I don't GAF either. And I've had a great weekend with people that I wouldn't have met if we were still together. My life is better for having him out of it and it sounds like yours is too. Well done us gin
