So what’s the hold-up??
Procrastination, I suppose. She and I get along better now that we’re not together than we ever did as a couple…so divorce has never been high on the agenda. It’s funny, because I’ve discussed this issue before and just never followed-through on it.
The forms are filled out. All that’s required is a signature, sending it in to be filed by the provincial government, and then filling out the final “that’s that” documentation. I’m hoping to officially be single by November.
Here’s my question, though…is there an appropriate time limit between one’s divorce and one’s next marriage?
I think it’s safe to say that I’ve found “the one” with Sunshine. At 38 years old, I’ve finally found the one who I can call my “soul mate” and who is simply everything I’ve ever wanted in a woman on every single level. Without going into much detail, we’ve discussed the possibilities of marriage and we both know it’s something on the horizon.
Oh…did I forget to mention that she’s legally still married, too? She’s also hoping to be officially divorced before year-end, as well.
For any of you out there who may be in your second marriage (or at least considering it), should there be an appropriate time frame between when one marriage ends and another marriage begins? Does it really depend on the separation? I mean, some people are separated for over a year and end up getting back together…so I guess it also depends on a person’s definition of “separation”.
For me (and for Sunshine), “separation” meant “the end”. My ex and I never had ANY incling to reconcile or get back together and the marriage was over long before we even decided to separate. I guess it all depends on the individual, though.
And no…I’m not proposing to Sunshine as soon as the divorce papers are filed (for those of your curious). But in the interests of being pro-active, I’m just wondering if there is any kind of “buffer time” that I should keep in mind?
