so i was married before. got divorced. i have a kid.
thats really common no big deal. but why do i find it awkward to call my so my boyfriend? now that im a divorcee. it sounds kinda juvenile now.

and why do i almost feel ashamed sometimes when i just think aboutthe fact that im divorced and only 24.


did anyone else go thru this? how did you over come this?

I always felt weird refering to my now husband as my boyfriend. I don't think you have any reason to feel bad about being divorced. You know people our age are always growing and ever changing. Mainly because we are still figuring out who we are and what we like. We are trying to settle into our lives. Things happen.

I agree that you should not feel badly about being divorced. Unfortunately its one of those things that happen in life sometimes. It does not make you any less. About your boyfriend...i have trouble calling mine that too. My SO amd i have been together 7yrs but we are not married. We also have two children together. I feel very awkward calling him anything really because how do u define a reltionship like this :S....usually i refer.to him ad "my other half"!

I never call my SO my boyfriend. I agree, it just feels and sounds so juvenile. Don't feel bad about being divorced. If you weren't meant to be then it was for the best that you separated.
