They'd have to do it if you went on vacation or a business trip. This is no different. In fact, it could be more important than vacation/business adjustments. It's making the space for mourning so your best health and hers could be able to move forward. Then you can see what new shape this family could take so you are able to date, bond with someone else, and see if bio fatherhood is in your future or not.
Well I had not seen them for a few weeks until I picked him up from school the other day. I would like a clean break, but I except that Harry makes that impossible, so we will make the best of it.
I have told my wife that I want a divorce, and I have spoken to a lawyer about it. It was very difficult to see her that upset when I told her, but I have made my mind up now, and will not change it. I truly think that its for the best.
