Dh and I have been separated for a over a year and are pending a divorce once he returns because he is dragging it out another year and I had to refile through an actual lawyer instead of uncontested.
We have been married for 7 years and it will be 8 this month because we are technically still married. In November I started dating thinking that the uncontested paperwork I gave him would be signed and everything would be over - Here we are in July- This wonderful man has been at my side for 8 months but he has been my "Dirty little secret".
I hate that I have been hiding him because I want the world to know how happy I am and how happy my kids are around him. The county we live in doesn't have any punishment for dating while separated but frowns on it.
My soon to be exdh won't return until January and we will have been waiting for this divorce to be over 2 years by the time we actually get to court! Should I just keep Mr Wonderful hiding from everyone or would you have let the cat out of the bag by now?
Shame on me for not waiting two years for the jerk to get his crap together but the kids and I deserve to be happy! Keep the bashing to yourself, I just want to know if you were in my shoes (I know you aren't but if you were) would you wait or would you just come clean?
