After 10 years of separation from my estranged husband we are finally going to be divorced in less than a month.So why am I feeling so depressed about it?I have a new partner who I love very much,and it is only fair to him that I be free of the "noose around my neck" as I refer to my husband as being.
I have wanted to divorce my husband for almost 2 years now and he always refused to sign the paperwork,but now he is divorcing me.It is not the divorce itself that bothers me,but the dividing up of assets,and the selling of the matrimonial home which I still live in with our children.
As an ISFJ I don't take too kindly to sudden change,even if I knew this moment would come eventually.I guess I shouldn't worry too much because my SO and I are thinking of moving interstate at some point in the future,and I'd be happy as long as we were together and in a stable relationship.I'm not that fussed about getting married again and neither is my SO.He is an ISTP and has never been married,although he has been involved in several long term relationships in the past and was engaged to be married once,to the mother of his children,until that all fell apart.
Does any one have an answer as to why I am feeling the way I do about my impending divorce?As one door closes another one opens as the saying goes,and this is true for me,as I am very happily in love with my SO.
Why can't I just let go of my disastrous marriage (my children being the exception) and get on with my life and new relationship?Does it have more to do with my personality than anything else in my life?
