On divorce...................

On divorce................

First of all, I HATE the word "divorce".  I do not have a sufficient replacement (for the word) at this time, but when I do, you can be sure that I will announce it to the world.

Second of all, don't expect ANYTHING, and don't let ANYTHING surprise you.  Easier said, than done, I'm aware.   

Third, you will know who the people are who believe in you, and who will stick by you.  While it hurts like hell to discover the ones who don't (especially when you thought they did), it is not worth your time to convince them that they should.

And lastly (you would be disappointed if I did not add some humor to the seriousness) .........................

Consider telling people that the reason for the "marital split" is that you have been a "closet lesbian" all of these years.  They may understand that better than telling them you were in counseling for your entire marriage, you felt sad and alone, and just couldn't do it anymore.


  1. The closet lesbian line sure has worked for me. Women have flocked to my side!

  2. Thanks for the laugh, Ashley !

  3. Your last and "humorous" statement is an unfortunate but so true observation of society.

  4. To clarify, I'm saying that society will more readily accept something entirely counter-cultural than accept something that is merely uncommon. Seems very backwards to me, the ever-changing standards of society.

  5. I could not agree with you more.
