Or something along those lines.
I got in a few moments ago after taking the girls for dinner at my parents' house. Although I had heard it today I got confirmation when I just opened my mail. Yes, the decree absolute is finally through. After some minutes of staring at the "certified copy", specifically the bit where it says "marriage of......was dissolved on 25th March 2008" I really do believe it.
By coincidence this was on the very day that the window seat thief was doing her thing. For all I know at the very moment the judge was rubber stamping my divorce the window seat thief may have been indulging in her own type of watersports.
Wow, it feels big, weird and a touch on the emotional side. After almost fifteen years' of marriage that's it. Done, dusted and divorced.
I guess there must be a few divorcees out there who read this and I wonder how you felt when it happened, although I know full well that divorce is still illegal in Sri Lanka, or is that homosexuality?
One thing's for sure; the past year has been one of the most eventful of my life.
Today is certainly the first day of the rest of my life.
