Well, it looks like the end of my marriage has come after 13 years, I am both happy and sad. The only problem is we have a 3 year old daughter that I wanted to raise together. I believe my wife is bi-polar and we just don't get along. of course I'm completely normal. yeah right! Out of the blue tonight, she decided we need a separation, and finally took her seriously after not changing her mind. We talked tonight and have agreed on 50/50 custody of our daughter with neither party being sued for palimony/alimony. Anyway seems like it's an ugly proposition! So how many of you are still divorced and/or single? A question to the divorcees: Does the hurt wear off after being separated from your spouse? Will life return to normal?
