    it is one year 2morrow since I pitched S2BX out of our life, literally he landed at the foot of the front steps.

    it honestly feels like longer, but I am mad at myself that it took me a whole year to finally go forward and start the divorce process. Seeing him get out of one rehab and then go straight to another one, was discouraging, but also a good realty check, nothing has changed, nothing will change, not for the better at least.

    Well I am still married and wondering how long this will now take, but i can't go backwards only forwards!

    happy Anniversary to me, our "real" anniversary is 8/14 it will be 16 years of wedded blisslessness (is that a word?)

    Congrats on making the one year mark! It takes a lot to move on and realize it's over.

    After I left my ex, he would send letters begging the kids & I back and how he would change and blah blah blah. The truth of it was: I was done, I no longer felt love feelings for him, I didn't want to "work it out". I'm sure to him, I was a cold hearted calculated killer. I told myself I left for a reason, why would I go back to that situation? Sure it would have been easy to give up and go back .... but what was I accomplishing? Because I left the state when I left him, I had to wait for residency requirements before I could file for divorce. Once I did, it was roughly 6 months and a done deal. He was remarried and divorced by Dec 2004 .... It took me 6 1/2 yrs of being with husband before we walked down the aisle August 25, 2007.
