- Wedding: September 2013
Hi fellow newlywed bees. I’ve been married a few months now and knew it was probably coming, but fairly certain now that the wheels are in motion for my parents to get divorced. It was always going to be hard, but there’s so much change going on in my life and now I find out this. DH and I are trying to buy a house, I’m finishing my masters degree, we’re planning to TTC, etc. It’s especially hard because I’m close to my mom and she tells me a lot about the relationship, the divorce, etc. I try to stop her, but she doesn’t have many people to talk to and I end up feeling bad. She also doesn’t really listen anyway! It’s hard because we’re in close proximity to DH’s family, so we see them a lot and I’m just feeling sad and jealous. I had some sadness about the final step away from my parents when I got married, changing my last name, etc. and now suddenly it’s like my childhood is in some ways disappearing. I doubt I’ll get to go back to my childhood home before they sell it due to our finances and the timing of it all. DH tries to be sweet about it, but divorce has been threatened for so long that he doesn’t always take it seriously, and with happily married parents just a short drive away, he doesn’t get it. It’s all just so ugly and I needed to get it out!
