I have been separated from my ex-husband for six years, divorced for almost two. We share a nine year old son. We were together for 8 years and went through so much together. The best and worst times of my life were with him and even though I don't want to reunite, I still feel so connected to him. Even though we don't ever discuss "US" I know that he feels the same. I feel as if I am watching him live what would have been our future life, as I had imagined years ago. Alone. As I am. I worry that the baggage we share will prevent us from moving on to other people. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Does it ever go away?
