That's all I say anymore when talking about my life. No need to give the whole story, he cheated, we tried to make it work for 3 yrs, blah blah. Nope, just, my marriage blew up. I kind of like that. If someone asks I tell, but I no longer feel the need to explain why we divorced. This was a milestone I was looking forward to and hoping to reach. I'm glad I'm there!

I am so glad you have reached this milestone. Everyone thinks their life will come to an end when they D, but they eventually realize that it doesn't. Once you reach the place of indifference, you actually look at it as a blessing in decise.

I refer to it as "when my life imploded".

I refer to it as the time he wanted every woman he met to fu*k him and I needed one man to love only me. It was 15 years this past spring--and I rarely think of it any more unless I am commenting on someone else's posts. Believe it or not, you will get there, too.

Thanks for the replies. Last year at this time I was waiting for divorce to be finalized. It was an intense phase. Now I'm so much more relaxed. It took a while to get there. Divorce seemed like such a heavy word then.

Yep! There is life after divorce.

I like your metaphor. Mine also blew up.
