How Long?

So the other day I was taking a survey. One of those that asks your sex, age, race....marital status.

I was given four options:

  1. Married
  2. Divorced
  3. Widowed
  4. Single never married

These questions always bring up an issue for me.

I don't consider myself divorced. It's been so long...almost three times longer than the actual marriage.

And I've never been one to spend a lot of time bad mouthing the ex...not that he doesn't deserve some bad mouthing...but again...it's been soooo long. What really would be the point.

So back to the survey. I always answer 'Single'. I always have a little guilt. But that lessens with time.

I guess I'd like this option:

Single Doesn't Even Remember Being Married

I think we should petition for that to be an option, and then for someone like me:married doesn't remember being single!

Love the beautiful flowers and of course the family photos. Looks like you kept AA aka Alabama Austin in kisses and hugs. Great stuff.
