Comments (for longer story if you wish): I may be young to be divorced, and sometimes I feel really judged. I was young (22) when I got married, and decided to file for divorce 2 years into it. My ex-husband was not a good person to me, drank heavily, and decided it was best for myself and my child to leave. I tried to make the situation right at the time, after getting pregnant, but it was a terrible and regretful decision to marry. I am thrilled I found someone who is caring, accepting, thoughtful, and treats me like a princess. He is a truly a wonderful person and I am excited for this new chapter in my life!
