As hard as it was for me and my husband to divorce, it was the right thing, after 12 years we did want and need different things, a very common thing to happen in relationships. I know it feels really horrible right now, but if you know he'd be happier with monogamy, living in the city, and maybe other stuff that is IMPORTANT to people, and you're happier where you are, and poly - if you can stay civil and kind, it's likely you may find in a couple of years you are both grateful that you parted ways, and are both happier than you could've been if you were both making big compromises for each other year after year, and hopefully, still friends who care about each other.

Hope you don't think I'm minimizing your feelings, I just wanted to put a positive spin on it, and say there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
