I have been seperated for three years and the big divorce is finally through. I’ve been with my Fiance for most of that time. Really looking forward to being able to move ahead in our life together and no longer be held back by technically being married.
How did everyone else feel when their divorce was finalized?

I’ve never been divorced, but wanted to say congrats on starting the new chapter in your life with your Fiance :o)

Wow, congrats, SeeingStars!
My divorce was final last summer and I remember clearly the immense relief it was. Like a huge weight suddenly lifted. I came out of the courtroom and noticed the sun was shining, the birds were singing…
Of course, my relief is not complete, as now we are working on an annulment. Once that is done…I can’t imagine how thrilled I will be!

I was thrilled when mine was final, but that was almost 5 yrs ago. Now, Fiance, we had to sweat it over his, because his ex wouldn’t sign the papers the first two times she got them. Finally, he told her that she’s getting everything she wanted (seriously, she just didn’t understand the legal wording & kept saying she didn’t agree w/stuff that was in her favor!!!!!!) so if she didn’t sign them, she needed to hire her own attorney, have him write them up & that she could also pay the fees for the 3 times he had them written. She signed them 2 days later & thanfully his is final now! We were worried it would be down to the wire w/our wedding date in September!
Congrats to you!

Congrats!!! I was dating my FH when my divorce became final and it was SUCH a sense of relief. We didn’t get engaged until a year after it was final, but it’s hard to move on 100% when there is a lingering problem from the past still holding on…. It’s so great to be with the right one and let the past go!

Similar to you, the ex and I had been separated for a couple years before our divorce was finalized. I didn’t think it would feel any different since we had been apart for so long- but like the other posters I felt such a sense of RELIEF!

I have never been divorced but I also wanted to give you my congrats. When my sister and her now ex had finally divorced, she was so ecstatic. I think she even had a divorce party or something like that.
Good luck to you and your FI!

Congrats!!!! I bet you feel such a relief!!!!!
I started dating my Fiance 4 months before his divorce was finalized. We celebrated with bottle of champagne when it was finished.

Thanks ladies. It’s been good to hear your stories. I was feeling a little bit guilty that i was feeling so happy and relieved.

The day my divorce was finalized was kind of anticlimactic. It was a long road and Fiance fought and fought – just ’cause. I ended up settling on many things just to get it overwith.
Now – in June – when my “divorce loan” is paid off… THAT will be the day of celebrations!!!
