JB and I met up on Saturday to discuss terms for an uncontested divorce, which is the quickest and easiest way for us to get divorced…not to mention, it’s the least expensive.
Even though the state of Tennessee could give two shits about a couple who divorces after less than a year of marriage, JB has been very cooperative and helpful, and we’ve come up with some solutions that will hopefully ensure that I will be able to survive for the next few months while I try to find a job and a new place to live.
He met with his lawyer on Monday, and the document is currently being drawn up – I pick up my copy at that point, and take it to my lawyer to read and review. That’s cheaper than paying a retainer, that’s for damned sure.
Whenever my lawyer’s done reviewing, and I sign it, then JB signs it, his lawyer will file, and about 60 days later, I will officially be divorced.
Can I just say how humiliating it feels to only have been married for 11.5 months? Like, he left me two weeks before our first anniversary (which is this coming Sunday). I can’t help but feel like kind of a loser, even though this is for the best for both parties.
Part of the reason I was kind of reluctant to get married was because I’ve been a two-time child of divorce.
Also? I’m now a fat, single chick.
