    I went to visit my soon to be ex wife today

    for the first time in months, we spent some time catching up etc! I'm now left feeling sad & regretful having thought that I'd gotten over her & was moving forward! Can anyone possibly cheer me up & chat a little?

    I am soon to be divorced.

    Signing an agreement in the next two weeks. I was very unhappy in my marriage so in one hand I will be relieved on another I still worry about my three children. I know it's better in the long run for them to see me happy, but doesn't make it easier to see the pain this causes.
