27 People Who Got Divorced After 20+ Years Of Marriage


And finally: “I got married one month after I graduated high school, and we had a really fun first 10 years. But after a while, we got lost in the grind and became more distant and would disagree more often than not. Neither of us were growing in life, and we had just basically become roommates with kids. After my mom died unexpectedly, everything became very acute as to how short life is and understanding your life purposes.”

“I grieved heavily when I lost my mom, and at first our marriage rallied, but then he got impatient with my sadness. There were other things. But I really did realize that we could part as friends at 25 years, or we could spend another 25 years sharpening are claws on each other and really hurting each other deeply. And I didn’t want that.

I remember in my grief asking my nearly adult daughters if there was anything in our marriage that they would want in their own future marriages, and they both said no without hesitating. So I knew I needed to finally end it.

I don’t have any regrets about any of it. I had a very successful 25-year marriage, and I am enjoying a successful divorce. We get along fine. We’re both better off as friends.”
