I won’t neglect those responsibilities for a one-night stand.
Blended families work for some people but I look at the problems they can have and I don’t want to ever deal with that. I have had casual sex since my divorce but it’s been less and less frequently as the years have gone on.
I used to be horrified at the thought of being celibate for an amount of time (and no, I won’t be specific; a girl’s got to keep privacy), but that amount of time has come and gone and I was most surprised that I just didn’t care that much.
There’s still outstanding things on my credit report.
I decided long ago that I was never going to take on the legal obligations again.
Kudos to April for recognizing what choices work for her and her family.
