Fear of being alone kept me in an abusive marriage far too long. Though I don't necessarily like it, it is far less lonely than the marriage I was in. There is good and not good about it and I try to focus on the good.

Yes, very happy alone.    Why be in a toxic relationship as my marriage was ?   Yes, admittedly it is lonely at times, but then again, I have my freedom, my peace and quiet and my own space.     My Ex husband is still making life miserable for me.   Divorced for over four years and we are going back to court.  He stopped paying my alimony and wants to modify the decree.    At this point in my life, why would i want to be involved with a man?    Can't trust the ones i've known as shown by my ex husbands antics.

I spent so many years alone while I was married that it feels pretty normal to me. I can't  say that this is the best living arrangement for me, but I am used to it.

My 21 year old son lives with me but gone most of the time with his friends.  I am perfectly content with living alone.  I have a nice apartment, wonderful friends, a wonderful support group, and a great group of friends and family.   I come and go as i please and can hold myself accountable for everything.

  Hi, Sally.  Yes, I am happy living alone.  I have freedom to live as I please, without having to worry about anyone else, which feels WONDERFUL!  I have pets, which helps, also.  

I was fortunate enough to get the little house at the time of the divorce.  I am still paying the mortgage, but I can handle the payment.  

When my ex divorced me, he didn't want the house, because he thought he was "in the money."  His young girlfriend had wealthy parents, so he thought he had it made, and even told me so. !!!!!!!  Unfortunately, for him, her parents did not like him, considered him way too old and poor for their daughter, and helped to break them up.  

I would never want to live with him again, because I have never figured out a way to stop him from emotionally abusing me.  If I lived with room mates, they would have to put up with my pets, and I would have to put up with whatever baggage they have.  I know, if I am lucky enough to live to a very old age, I will probably not be able to live alone, but that's okay.  

I am retired now, but have a lot of interests, and plan to increase my social activities.

Are you okay living alone as a divorced person.  Or, are you always "on the look-out" for some other kind of living arrangement?
