A graceful divorce

Josh's and Julia's divorce was finalized yesterday. No divorce is ever easy but this went as smoothly as could be. So I no longer have a daughter-in-law. Alex and Jack will remain dreams  or at least have different parents. (The girl and boy names of their unconceived children). They hammered out the details between themselves the night before. He asked her if she was sure that she wanted to go through with it. She said she wasn't sure but she would do it anyway. They share custody of their dog so they still will be in almost weekly contact. Maybe at some point, he can figure out what went wrong.

It makes me sad. They once seemed so full of hope that they would spend their lives together.  I am glad that she didn't ask for everything she could have received legally. He can now move on.
