Glad Anniversary…you’re Divorced!

 Right this moment is the anniversary of the day I pledged to God and the world that I might love my husband "til loss of life do us half." There goes that pledge!  I believe God and the world needs to be congratulating me on breaking that pledge…if I might have stored the vow “til loss of life do us half” I might be writing this text from loss of life row in a lady’s most safety jail!  I assumed this might be a tough day for me to get by having been separated for nearly a yr and out and in of court docket for messy divorce proceedings.  The truth is, I didn’t even keep in mind that my anniversary was upon me till final night time round eight:00.  I’ve talked to people who find themselves divorced they usually inform me they dread today like they dread the vacations spent alone or bathing swimsuit buying.  Me, I've extra necessary issues to dread…like my favourite bakery operating out of strawberry crème cheese croissants earlier than I get there!

I’ve determined to take a unique method to the day.  I’m really rejoicing.  I cherished being married.  I cherished all the time having a date for Friday night time, having somebody inform me I used to be cherished, somebody to snuggle as much as at night time.  I’m utilizing my wedding ceremony anniversary as a celebration of the happiness and love I felt for my partner throughout our relationship (identical to I have a good time the day I filed for divorce and had him served!)  No extra happiness and love, but in addition no extra preventing and betrayal. Not as a lot enjoyable as my wedding ceremony day thoughts you.  No flowers, no cake, no presents.  To date nobody has given me an envelope with money in it (to those that do wish to give me an envelope with money in it my e-mail deal with is and I gladly settle for private checks!)  No enjoyable gown buying or champagne to have a good time today.  However I settle for all the nice instances I had with my ex in addition to I'm pressured to cope with all of the dangerous instances I had with my ex.

 If I may, I might flip by my wedding ceremony album exclaiming to my youngsters how blissful and in love their dad and mom have been and the way a lot I used to be glad that day occurred.  So why don’t I flip by that wedding ceremony album with all these superb footage of me and my ex in love?  As a result of he’s confiscated all recollections of our blissful day. Is it spite, anger, or punishment?  I can solely hope and pray he’s finished this as a result of he holds pricey our wedding ceremony recollections.  Possibly immediately he's flipping by our wedding ceremony album remembering what enjoyable that day was and the way glad he's that we received married.  I doubt his new girlfriend will probably be thrilled with this concept however I typically attempt to assume the perfect about folks… yeah no matter, he’s in all probability reduce my stunning, glowing, youthful face out of all of our images and changed them with the Depraved Witch of the West’s mug shot.  Nonetheless I attempt to think about the perfect!

My level is don’t shun your wedding ceremony anniversary date.  Use today to have a good time that you simply have been as soon as in love…and that you've the good fortune to not maintain celebrating this anniversary with somebody who you weren't meant to be with “til loss of life do you half”!  Otherwise you is perhaps studying this from loss of life row in a most safety jail!  I thank God I solely had seven anniversaries and never seventy! Glad Anniversary to me!
