What Love Is Like After Divorce

by: Delaine Moore

It's been a long road getting to "healthy" since I got divorced five years ago. Between legal matters, single parenting, starting a new career and exploring the dating/sex trenches, my life often felt like one giant ball of CRAZY.

 But there came a time, about two years ago, when I realized I was 100 per cent happy on my own.

You would think this day would be a glorious one--like Halloween, for instance, where children are anticipating how they will appear in their costumes, who will answer the door they knock on, what the reaction to their costume may be and of course, what sort of treats will delight them in their trick-or-treat bag.
