the d words
I have decided divorce is pretty damn close to a death. Feels the same, smells the same, looks the same. Five days into this, I can only say that I will never go through this again, because I will never marry again. It has been the most excruciating week of my life. Argh. People are offering up plenty of suggestions, but it's my own mind that I need to listen to now. The future was hard enough to consider while I was married, but it's even scarier to know I'll be raising a special needs son and a teenage daughter in the future, who will be spending the majority of their time with me. I have decided that infidelity has to be one of the worst marriage stressors to go through. I wonder why women treat each other like this? I am hopeful that karma makes it so that every woman who sleeps with a married man ends up being cheated on. That would be a nice circular punishment, don't you think?
