  • i think it all depends on how long you were married.
    What let to the divorce in the first place
    if you had kids.
    How much you raelly loved him
    So there are several factors.

  • I was over it before it happened. But, my exh was a complete ass. Lying cheating, you name it he did it.

    I'm so sorry for you though. I don't know what I would do if I split with my current dh. My world would be so different!

  • Therapists say it take about 5 years or so to get over a divorce and being left. It's just been 5 years for me, I'm still not completely over it and I'm remarried. I'm over missing him, but the damage he did is still there (cheating, lying, saying hurtful things).
    Therapy would probably help.
    I am sorry you are going through this.
