Yes. I felt that way. But I would remind myself of why I left in the first place and that kept me moving forward.

Yes, you're splitting up the family...that's going to cause guilt.

 I guess it depends on the situation.  I married and didn't think I'd ever get divorced.  He wanted and got it.  What makes him so much better than me?  nothing, zilch, nothing.

i didn't think i ever would get divorced either. but this is not the man ive married and ive tried talking to him and ive suggested talking to a marriage counselour but its not worth it. i am just at the very beginning of this journey

 Been there and done that.  I no longer have to deal with the pain and agony he left me.  However, I am ready for him to show up at my doorstep because I have some last words to speak to him about with a great big sidesplittinglaughter.  His loss, my gain.

Yep, but if it was a bad marriage, you did the best thing you could for your kid(s).
