Well, I'm divorced. Er, dissolved?!?!

I guess that's the big news. I'm divorced. Or dissolved? Since it was a Civil Union they call it a dissolution but that just sounds even odder than saying divorced.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about you can view my original post about this subject.

And I guess it really all happened about a month ago. Remember that paper I got saying it was filed? Well, filed meant completely done as well.

I had been calling to check on the status and finally got someone today. All done.


No extra papers requested? No serving the other party? No questions from the judge regarding custody since that wasn't allowed with this filing? Nope.

Someone finally had the sense just to understand it and go on. Yay for the battle but it is a strange feeling.

A friend also told me today I'm officially her first divorced friend. Ugh. Never thought that would be me.

In fact, what do you do with news like this? Even the ex asked if I was going to celebrate.

Celebrate what? A relationship that ended 6 years ago? A failed marriage? Hardly seems appropriate.

I guess what this makes me is more single than I already was. That's about it.
