Falling out of love.
My daughter and her newlywed husband have called it quits. We spent the last few days moving her home. It has been time filled with many tears and many unpleasant feelings. Bottom line is her husband of 11 months decided he didn't want to be married. He wants to be free as a bird to do whatever his heart desires. I am glad. I never wanted my daughter to marry him in the first place. She told us on Christmas Day last year that they were getting married on New Years Day. It was a shock to say the least and the way it was handled totally devastated me. Instead of a happy day I was completely depressed, although I did try. No one in the family approved of her husband or thought they should marry in the first place, so its not a surprise to us that its over. It is just hard to deal with and we are all very sad for her.
I spent the months that followed her marriage re doing her bedroom into a guest room. I did enjoy that and it kept me busy and thinking positive. But all that stuff was moved out so we could move her back in!
Of course now I have a whole new load of emotions. One thing for sure is I am thrilled that she is back. But on the other hand I am stressed with having her back. Does anyone understand that one? Of course her coming home means my granddog is also moving back home. So that is fun too.
She has finals coming up for college so is waiting until after that to file for a dissolution of marriage. I hope it all goes smoothly.
