My Divorce

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On March 27, 2017 I published the Facebook Note “Changes” and notified everyone about Mary and me choosing to obtain a divorce.

As of today (June 1, 2017), I am publishing a new series explaining our decision. It has Mary’s involvment, receiving her contributive considerations and thoughts, but the series is written from my perspective.

I doubt the series will answer all questions, but I do hope that it provides some answers, explaining that while Mary and I are divorced we are not ending our personal relationship and why we have chosen to govern our personal relationship differently.
