An Open Letter to My Now Ex-Wife

“It was an honor to have you for 20 years. It will be my privilege to be a close friend the rest of your life.”

You deserve an award for making it 20 years with a man like me.

Statistically, this was a good decision.

You are an AWESOME mom.

I want you to be happy.

For the record, I would have married you all over again… even if I knew it would end like this.

You need to stay off WebMD.

You can’t get me to stop loving you.

I’ll always be here to help you in any way you need.

If our divorce has taught me one thing it’s this: if I had known it was going to end after 20 years, I would have absolutely done more sit-ups.

I’m not stupid. I know a woman like you will not be alone long.
