We divorced 5 years later. It has been 10 years and even through me having more children and both of us being remarried, I can't get over him. My first love became my partner and a father when we were teens. He was angry as we had separated 5 years prior for 6 months after a trauma I had and I needed my time to recover. I know times have changed, he even has two kids now from what I've heard. I regret the divorce, I regret not trying after the divorce when he … I was the one that divorced him. OUR 2 sons are young men now, but I find it difficult to move ahead with my life. He and I were together for 6 months. I believe during that time my illness became worse, which affected our marriage. What I'm trying to say is, don't let him hold you back. I only mention him when my friends bring him up on occasion (I guess they think I don't love him anymore). (If you have to see your ex at school, keep your encounters short and sweet.) I do miss my ex after 10 years divorced.
