Divorce In 2013

Mar 14, 2013

Let me tell you about my Christmas Day this year. In the morning, I drove my significant other to the airport so she could fly to L.A. and see her grandchildren. Then I drove out to Canton to the home of my ex-wife and her significant other. My son and his girlfriend went there too, and we proceeded to have an absolutely lovely Christmas Day.

 In the evening, it got even more complicated. All of us wound up at the home of my ex-brother-in-law and ex-sister-in law. As is the case every year, there was singing around the piano that involved everybody I mentioned, plus my brother in law's first wife, his sister and her ex-husband and a whole bunch of kids from everybody's different marriages. It sounds crazy, but that's how we do it every year, and everybody has a really good time. Which is not to minimize how sad divorce is.

 Today, the state of divorce in 2013.
