Mythbusters: Divorce Fact or Fiction
Today is a milestone day for me. It’s a milestone because it was 5 years ago today that I sued my 20+year mate for divorce and started a new life. It’s a milestone because that was a time of great uncertainty and wondering where I’d be in 5 years and if I’d “make it.” I wasn’t running to anyone romantically-I was on my own and stood to lose everything, including my children and home, but I also stood to gain everything.
In the 5 years that have passed, I’ve busted a lot of myths. These were told to me by my ex, yes, as you might guess. But I also heard many of these from family who loved me and friends who supported me.
– A divorce won’t solve your misery: you can’t be happy.
– Expecting a man to be a romantic is unrealistic.
– I understand you better than.
