Just got a letter from my solicitor. Paperwork submitted, could have my Decree Nisi in as little as three weeks. So there we are then. That’ll be essentially my marriage resolved/dissolved. Six weeks later the absolute will come through, but basically the Nisi is the important thing, it means the courts accept what I have to say and i’m allowed not to be married anymore.
I’ll be honest it gave me pause. I feel positive, optimistic, hopeful for the future, pumped for tomorrow’s fight, but also just a little reflective.
This is the song Mark chose for our first dance at the wedding
Simple fact of it? Neither of us delivered, we both sat back and expected that bit of things to take care of itself. Even if we had fixed everything else, all the practical issues, all the things we could have argued about, that would stil have done for us.
In the long run it’s been a learning experience for us both and I we’ve come out of it better but it’s still a little sad to let go and i’ve no doubt seeing the paperwork in three weeks will pull me up short for a moment. Just for a moment though, it’s all forward motion here.
