You're Totally Normal: The 6 Most Common Reactions To Divorce

By

My ex-husband was a big shot in a small town sort of way. He thrived on the attention he got; I wilted because of it. When I dropped the "d-bomb", his reaction was predictable. And when he remarried it was, as he put it, because he "had to have somebody" in his life. But what about me? How did I feel once I got what I wanted? Read on to ... Read more
