DowntroddenDad will become famous soon enough
Default I'm through....

After 18 months I finally have my decree. Now I thought I went through a lot of grief, but after seeing some of the other cases here, maybe I had it easy. It took almost a year to get a separation agreement, I conceded much to get peace and move on, but probably less than it would have cost in court. My ex and I have nothing to fight about at the moment. My kids are coming around. I moved into a new place to have a spare bedroom. It is all coming together.

I won't be throwing a party though. I did have a quiet drink last night, may have another with a friend.

congratulations! I hope you can move on now and enjoy life. When reflecting on the past try to think of the good times and let go of the bad times.

'grats.

enjoy the peace while you can. i find it never lasts long - but 'if i were you, you'd be me, and i would use your body to climb to the top of the mountain'
so hopefully your experience differs

Knowing you sing, keep that up...it's good for the soul. Congratulations! I hope to get free before the year is up! ;/

Thanks for the kind words.

Yes I am still keeping up a busy schedule with singing. This summer my choir will be one of the featured performers at a choral festival in Newfoundland, excited about that since its the only province I've never been to.

I actually exchanged emails with a recently ex GF to tell her the news(we are still on good terms) and she did take pains to remind me that the marriage produced three wonderful kids, and for that I am truly truly grateful.

As for peace I will enjoy it while I can. At the moment my relationship with my ex wife and ex GF are very peaceful. I am looking forward to happier times.

Thanks for the support

Just when I think everything is going well, either my ex or my boyfriends ex stirs up shit with the kids ..... Why are they so self centred and selfish that they can't see what they are doing with the kids?????

Congratulations! Even if it doesn't feel euphoric and celebration-worthy, it's a milestone.
