My divorce was five years ago. In 03 she said it was the worst thing she ever did. I said I was sorry she felt that way. I got off the tele and hit the starter on the Fatboy and rode off to bike night.
when you drive by the local 15 room notell motel and your 5 year old son says "hey daddy, I been there before", You ask hime why and he says" thats where mommy took me to meet this guy she knows". Yea, I would say its worth it.
I often wonder if the divorce rate was as high as it is now back in the 50's, what would be the common living arrangements?
The two things I have learned about marriage is: somebody is going to turn in to a jerk after the vows and temporary mental insanity and shooting your spouse is a lot cheaper than the cost of a divorce.
if you are the one who wanted the divorce, it is like watching someone you love die an agonizing slow death
if you are the one who was informed by you partner that they wanted the divorce, it is like getting the news that someone you loved died suddenly
so is it worth it--for me yes it was--but it was still a grieving process that took time to heal
friends, family and a great therapist came in handy--to help deal with all the mixed feelings of disolving 24(23 married) years of being together
even knowing it needs to be--i sometimes 2nd guess myself
at this point i'm happy and satisfied with where i am and where i'm heading
