Just Posted Separation News ...Hello,
For those who we are not super close to, I just posted this on Facebook & by email.
I first sent it to STBX, who said : "You should add that there were 2 pieces of sad news, this one and that I am getting worse not better".
I said I wanted to keep his illness out of it but would happily sit down with him and help him pen an email of his own, if he wanted it. He didn't.
I was pretty taken aback actually by him equating the two, and calling them both "sad news". I feel so damn GOOD about getting out of this relationship. People keep treating me like I'm in a funeral around here!!! It's one of the only positive things I have going for me right now.
Anyways here's the text:
Dear Family and Friends,
We hope that you all will provide compassion and support as we announce that we are dissolving our marriage.
Although we have amicably separated, we continue to be friends and co-parents, and our lives will forever be joined together through the love we share for our two beautiful children.
At the present, we remain resident at the same address, to provide continual support for our children and to readjust our individual lives to the new reality.
While the road ahead may diverge from the path we would have chosen, we look back with joy at the love we have shared, and equally eagerly forward to new adventures in this journey of our lives.
Thank you for your understanding,
