A number of years ago, I worked with a couple who were in the process of divorce. The divorce went through and they held a party in a local pub on the strength of the decree nisi.

Nothing seemed to change, however. They still sat together in the lunch room, had the usual kind of in-jokes that couples do, and the woman dropped the guy off at his flat on the way home. They did date other people, but there was no evidence of seriousness.

Nine months later (after a pregnant pause?) they remarried. To my knowledge they're still together.

It makes you wonder. Maybe acrimony is the only way to have a good divorce! And maybe it's no coincidence that acrimony and alimony share so many letters ...

-- i never really have to have any dealings with him -- Me too. Marriage gave me debt, 2 great girls, and a bunch of cool 'sort of' relatives. With divorce the problem (him) out of not only my life, but has also walked (ran) away from, girls and his sibling and their families. Hopefully they'll all reconnect someday, but his walking away has my life easier.

Someone not to long ago tried to tell that marriage is all about luck if that is true that I'm lucky that ones is over.
