23 Years Of Marriage GoneI got divorced last year after 23 years of marriage. My wife initiated the proceedings as it was she who wanted out. I still don't really understand how and why it happened, her reasons doesn't make complete sense. I admit that I am no angel and sometimes a very difficult person to live with but at one time we were seen as the perfect couple by most people who knew us. Strange how things can fall apart if you don't keep a close eye on it. Anyway, I don't want to write a book about the how, why and what.
Over the last year I tried to work things out and maybe reconcile. Today I got a mail from her saying that she is choosing the new guy in her life and I should accept that. Guess I have to face facts and move on.
This brings me to my question - How do you move on after 23 years ? What do you do ?
I am 46 years old, my kids are grown up and at this stage I am not interested in a relationship with someone.
What would be my choices any way. Women my age are normally divorced as well with their own issues and baggage and I can't really see me with a younger woman. I do not want to deal with someone else's kids and the women who doesn't have kids yet will somewhere along the line want kids which I cannot give her nor would I want to have another child at my age.
Am I just bitter or am I screwed and have to accept that ??
