Today Is My Anniversary

I am seperated from my husband...we will file for divorce once we are legally allowed is my wedding anniversary...we would be 7 years married.

I am not sure how to feel about it...partly I think that I should feel sad because I am remembering all of the promises we made to each other...I always thought marriage was forever and I meant it all at the time...but I also feel happy that I am not in that situation any more - I dont feel that we wasted the time we were together - but I know that I left at the right time.

I don't know - I guess i feel that I should mark it in some way - that I should feel somebit sad or nostalgic - but I feel very little emotion over it.

I think that is a good sign if you are experiencing a lack of emotion. I am in the midst of beginning a separation with my wife after eight years due to circumstances beyond our control - which almost makes it worse. One of my biggest fears is memories that will arise each day.

People change. Lifes a b!tch.

Thank you very much x

Let the feelings come. You have to experince them to get past them. I will say a prayer for you.

Thanks Firetech! :)

However you feel - good, lousy, or nothing- you are feeling as you should.

Its been over a year - so I think I am over the worst of it - I hope!!! It does get easier!!

Thank you...I do agree with you...I am happy that I moved on when the time was right.
