Today we agreed in writing to how we’ll split up our debt. I am relieved to have all that decided and out of the way.

In addition to just over $11,000 for my car loan, I have about $5,000 in credit card debt that I am solely responsible for. Hello, emotional spending. It’s time to reign this childish bullshit in.

We’ve agreed that I will live in this (one bedroom) apartment with him and split the rent and utilities for a few more months so I can pay off my credit card before getting my own place.

I’ve offered to trade off sleeping on the couch and bed each night, but he says he’ll keep taking the couch. We’ll see how long that lasts.

He does not want this divorce, but he says he still wants this to be amicable.

Can a divorce when one party doesn’t want it really be amicable? I guess we’ll see…

  1. Yes it can be amicable, surprisingly. My wife sprung the divorce on me out of the blue, it’s something I never wanted or considered, but it was clear her mind was made up so I didn’t fight. I recognized it was best to cut my losses and work on moving on rather than spend effort fighting for us, when she wasn’t going to. Anything more I could have done would have just drawn things out and probably ended up damaging the memories of our otherwise happy time together.
