It is not uncommon for one spouse to want to hold on to the marriage while the other is ready to let go and move one with his/her life.I really didn’t feel very much of anything; it seemed simply like going through the motions.In many ways there had been an inadvertent trade: identity and career plans for motherhood, the settling for part-time freelance writing instead of the magazine editing career in New York complete with white cat and white shag area rug in a loft studio envisioned by a girl long ago.I do not believe that divorce has to be nasty and bitter especially when there are little ones involved.We have both been very amicable, helpful and respectful about the whole situation. We established who gets the kids when and it's been working out great.
