si and i broke up a few weeks ago. on jan 12th. actually, we’re doing a trial separation that will end this friday. i moved out and am staying with a friend for a few weeks. this week i need to tell him that yes, it’s over and my feelings haven’t changed. this is going to be very hard to do. but i know it’s the right thing. he is a wonderful guy and i will always love him – we just grew apart. and i realized that i wouldn’t be happy if i stayed with him, and it wouldn’t be fair to him if i wasn’t in the relationship 100%.
it’s going to be pretty messy, logistically. we have the house.. and a bunch of joint accounts. and since we filed out taxes together last year, we’re technically common law married, which means that we might have to file for divorce. i am checking into this to see if there are any loopholes.
leave it to me to have to get a divorce before i have a wedding. because that’s just the way everything in my life seems to go. pitfall of being a nonconformist, i suppose.
