The Reluctant Divorcee

Brought to you by SA Law

I’ve never considered writing a blog before; it’s the kind of thing other people do. I’m more of a fact-based person but things are so all over the place at the moment that writing down my thoughts and feelings suddenly feels like the right thing to do. It helps me to organise my thoughts a bit, and who knows, someone else might read this who’s going through the same thing. So here it is: My blog, by Rebecca Green.

Time will be a great healer

I could be divorced today. It’s been just over two weeks since Marilyn applied for the Decree Absolute and she indicated that this is about the time that it takes for the court to stamp approval. It’s a strange feeling not knowing for sure but I’m seeing it as time to reflect, mourn a little and get used to moving on.

It wasn’t a bad marriage but it wasn’t great, particularly the last few years, and I’m looking forward to the future. It’s not going to be plain sailing and I have to accept that James will be part of my future because of our children. He’s not a bad person and I’m sure in time, we can become friends again.

The house is nearly sorted out. James took his medical in the end, obviously a weekend with the children pricked his conscience!
