Oh, how I wish this was true. I have a super public job in a small area with super judgey people. My life is lived under a microscope. The whispers when the wife and I publicly separated and announced we were getting a divorce was huge and when I started dating there were more whispers and pointed fingers. It's settled since then, but this would be a bridge too far.

That's how I figure it will work. A lot of trial and error and stepped on toes. The reality is that there will be a lot of "two holidays" which were already the norm for me with split families on both sides.
