    Will I ever lose the feeling of wanting to go

    back to him? (Even though I'm the one that left him and I know its the right thing to not be together) I keep thinking what if... Maybe he learnt his lesson now (but I know he didn't because he didn't try not to get a divorce, I know he's hurting...just perhaps not enough)

    Never thought I'd be starting over again at my

    I am newly divorced (this week it's final)

    after a very long 40 year marriage. I discovered a year ago he'd been cheating for years. Any advice on how to move on? I'm relieved this past year of trying to work it out and the trial separation is in the past, and I divorced him, but I still feel stuck!
