After weeks of pleading for the H to return our marriage certificate, I have at last lodged a sole divorce application. Because we have children under the age of 18 I have to attend court but I don't mind this so much. The day I went to court to lodge it and pay the fee it felt like my heart was going to burst out of my chest! The court hearing is 1 day after my birthday and the divorce becomes official 1 month and 1 day after that. I'm hopeful that everything will be okay. I want so much to move on. Never again will I ever date a cheater. My husband thinks he's won but he hasn't. I have been blamed for separating the family but he's too dumb to realise that you can't sleep around and still expect to keep your family. This is not what marriage is about!
