We are almost two, but not quite. Papers have been signed. Appearances have been made. Now we wait.

Until then, I must still check “married.” A reminder that I am in relationship purgatory. I look forward to my new checkbox.

You seem to be confused …

Hate to break it to you, but we’re not the same at all. I didn’t leave my marriage to be with someone else, I left my marriage because it had long been over. That I stumbled into a new relationship during my transition has nothing to do with my choice to leave - I had already left.

You, on the other hand, are pining for the same idiot you blew off before college because he didn’t put out. Really? All these years you managed to keep these so-called crazy feelings for your barely high school boyfriend in check, but the minute you learn of our demise, your heart is an open wound?

Since you asked for advice, here it is: You are still very married. With children. Deal with that first before you pick at other people’s leftovers.
