    Beautiful, true words. Thank you for reminding me why we tend to want to hold onto “known” pain, silly as it may seem.

    I took an interest in this blog due to my wife’s impending death and she has since passed. Most def. there are a number of ways that a marriage ends and death is one of them in addition to divorce.

    Now that you are onto another marriage – will you be wrapping this blog up ? Or will you be renaming it to lessons from another marriage ?

    • I am so sorry to hear about your wife. Divorce, especially tsunami divorce, has much in common with death. They are both a loss.

      I’m planning on continuing the blog as-is. I have changed the byline to reflect my current situation but the content will continue to address issues from the midst of divorce through remarriage and moving on. I think it’s important for there to be voices who have been there but are no longer there.

      Best to you,

    To compare death to divorce is a stretch but this is your blog and good luck to you. In fact, comparing a dead spouse to divorce is absurd.
