  • That is really tough. Why did you file (if I may ask)? Why do you feel it's right? You've been with him for 10 years, it will take some time to heal and move on. Try finding a divorce counselor to help talk you through it. I know that's what helped my husband. After 9 years and 3 kids, she wanted a divorce. He went through the same back and forth of I know its right, but is it?

  • Read the book How to Fall Out of Love by Dr Debora Phillips. It can help when you know it's the right thing to do. I just read it and it has helped me let go.
