Today.

Just putting this out there, cause I know some of you are wondering about today...
At the age of 18 way to young and to the way wrong guy I got married.
When things were good we put a band aid on a gushing wound and had two beautiful wonderful amazing daughters.
He was absent, drunk, emotionally abusive (to just me), cheating most of our marriage. So almost exactly 6 years later I threw in the towel and walked out.
Due to the fact that divorce is pretty pricey these days it took us awhile to get around to it.
In the meantime I started dating my best friend of several years and we had an amazing daughter ourselves.
So now almost 8 years later we are headed to court to finally put that ugly chapter of my life to rest so that I can throw all of my energy and heart into this new one.
I have been through a lot and have come out on the other side a lot happier and blessed.
So today...divorce is a good thing.

Thanks for listening :)

Good for you! I went through a similar situation. My ex and I had my three girls before we finally split up. Two years went by and we never got divorced even though I was engaged to someone else. Although we were not together, and I basically hated him for everything he ever did to me and our girls, I wished that one day he would get himself together for their sake. Sadly just a few months ago, in April, I got a call informing me he had been found dead. He was a drug addict and unfortunately it all caught up to him and took his life at 31 years old.

If you are like me, with your new relationship you will have your ups and downs, but you love him like no other and although it may be hard to express how you feel, he will never know the blessing he has been for you and your children. That is exactly how I feel about my fiance. I am so grateful for every moment he has been in my life. You and I both are lucky women to be given a second chance to find love. I am so happy for you. I wish only the best for you and your future.
