And so it starts…

I’ve done it! I have sent the application for divorce!

Draconian UK law means divorces are granted by accusing the other party of wrongdoing, like adultery (I couldn’t believe the forms that required the naming of the person your partner was having an affair with!) or violence. UNLESS you have been separated for two years and have the partner’s consent. I posted about the two years the other day. Bingo!

I called barely husband and told him I was going to do it. I tried to explain the process but it went over his head. As usual, he told me to carry on and help him when he needs to do anything. Typical!

As long as I follow all the steps, we should be officially divorced in a couple of months. In the first country. I’ll have two more to go with it getting progressively more difficult.

If you’re dreaming of that Caribbean or Italian wedding, think again. DO NOT GET MARRIED ABROAD! Just in case…

      That’s a (not so) fun fact. πŸ˜‚ I have to divorce here because we both live here. If I don’t divorce there too, I’m still legally married! It’s crazy! Lots of details. Celebrities have enough money to pay lawyers everywhere. I don’t!

  3. At least with you waiting for the two year separation and with his consent, the uk part should be straight forward and, hopefully, not take too long. Hope it goes smoothly.

      I hope so too! We both want it now so as long as I lead the process and help him on his side, we should be good. Thanks!
