Yeah, that’s me! Today at 9:38 am I became a legally single woman again. When I signed that decree (with a glitter pen) I felt like I just stepped off a roller-coaster. I wondered all last night if I was going to catch some wave of emotion at the courthouse ( same one where we were married), but it never happened. I almost wanted to hug my lawyer and everyone else in the room when the judge said, “Divorce Granted.” I’m free. Though we have a child together I will no longer have anything to do with my ex. What he’s doing, how he’s doing doesn’t mean two damns to me anymore and that’s the way I like it.
So, what is Miss Page doing to celebrate? I’m not having a party but I’m going to spend some time with J and enjoy the DMV. Today I closed a painful chapter in life and I will sum up what I learned. NEVER settle when it comes to marriage. It’s supposed to be forever and you don’t settle when dealing with forever. Getting to know someone’s background is important. I was so hot to get married I didn’t pay attention to the fact I’d married a man without a stable work history, who had a criminal record, and had a history of being a pathological liar. Watch their actions, because the proof lies there. With that being said, I am not turned off to marriage at all. Love is beautiful when it’s done right, and the next time I say “I do”, I will be sure it’s for the right reasons and that mutual love and respect is in the equation. So, today I’m feeling blessed for a little more wisdom and the new things happening in my life.
