He needs space to heal. Get out of his life; he’ll handle it.
Are you celebrating? She gave him a deadline. The papers are filed, right? No? They aren’t. You are a fool, man.
When I got my divorce I just filed the paperwork. Boom. Done.
What? You still haven’t filed? You’ve been out of the house for 13 months. What are you waiting for?
All this stress will kill you. Get in to see a therapist. You need to move on.
