Regret About The Past
‘I spent 15 years in marriage and thought it to be a happy one until my husband proposed a divorce. He told me he had just fallen out of love with me. I took everything with tolerance and since we have no kids it took no time to finalize our marriage.’
‘Then I started getting annoyed with myself about being married to my ex at all. I was deeply concentrated on the past and my regrets about our marriage that I couldn’t move on for some time.’
‘I took up meditation by my friend’s advice and things changed for the better. I learned about forgiveness as a part of the course and it changed my life drastically.’
‘Now I value the positive moments that we experienced before divorce. I managed to forgive myself for not making things work with my ex. I forgave him for leaving me. I am actually grateful that he gave me a chance to start my life over in an entirely different way. And I am happy now.’ Alana, 52.
Regret About Fast Move-On
‘Once I woke up with the feeling that I needed a divorce. I was stuck in the routine without anything happening between me and my husband. So I decided to file for divorce in Illinois online and managed to end my marriage really soon.’
‘My husband took everything peacefully and respected my decision. We decided to stay friends and he encouraged me to go on the Europe tour I had longed for. He never wanted to join since he was really engaged with his job.’
‘There, on my journey, I met another guy and we got married in a few months. This is when my ex cut all ties with me. It really hurt him that I decided about such a fast move-on. I regret hurting him. I wished I had talked it out with him before my second marriage.’ Susan, 31.
Regret About The Lost Friendship

‘Now I feel bad, regretting divorce and lost friendship I will never experience again.’ Jenny, 36.’
Regret About Late Decisions
‘My marriage was full of verbal and emotional abuse but I didn’t quit it until the physical one happened.’ ‘My ex-husband had issues with self-control but loved me and our daughter so much. So, we quietly suffered from his abusive words and threats when he was in a bad mood. But when he went back to normal we were a happy family together.’
‘It all lasted until he came home drunk and displeased with the lack of dinner. My daughter aimed to protect me from his murderous threats and my ex beated her up. I never hesitated a moment and divorced him quickly.’ ‘I only regret all the dread my daughter had to experience for 10 years of her life.’ Caren, 42.
Regret About Brutal Separation
‘We were a normal couple and good friends with my husband until I found out he cheated on me and I filed for divorce.’

Regret About Lack Of Protection

‘Now that I feel really lonely, I regret leaving my wife. But I have lost my chance. She’s got a new husband, and a happy settled life now.’ Ben, 34.
