Years Ago

Many years ago I was married to someone who was not well-suited for me.

I kind of knew this probably wasn't going to work but given the family dynamics at the time, I went ahead and got married hoping for the best.

It didn't work. No surprise and many years later I got a divorce.

I don't regret it. I learned a lot about marriage and divorce and how people react to the legal system.  I also learned a lot about they way people perceive divorced people.  (That is for another story.)

There is life after divorce and it does get better. Much, much better.

Yes, life gets much better after divorce. Too bad we all seem to have to go through that!

My own first foray into the marriage arena also ended in divorce, but after only five years. I have often pondered since then what to select on credit applications and other forms. I may be remarried, thus now married, but I will also always be divorced (from ill-advised spouse number one). Do I check both boxes? <br />

Odd that we were such a poor match, but I will always remember our wedding anniversary, even if I no longer think of it in any fond way. It approaches at the end of this month, and it will be 28 years, since Tat first walk down the aisle. I often ask: "What were we thinking?" However, I know the answer: she married for a ticket off the farm. I married for sex. Well, she got off the farm anyway...

Marriage can be an interesting and educational experience.

Not well-suited. That's a perfect understatement he was a real jerk. I'm glad you're not married to him anymore.

I'm glad too. : )
