How It Feels When People Tell Me They Are Sorry I’m Divorced

People tell me all the time, “I’m sorry” when they hear I am getting a divorce.

And at first, I felt sorry too. Sorry I was getting a divorce. Sorry I was alone and in my thirties. Sorry I was broke and breaking up my daughter’s family.

But now?

This may sound like a no-brainer, but entering into an intimate relationship with a man isn’t always such a black and white decision. Typically, society has told us that men should and do have sex with women as often as they want to…and with as many people as they want to. Why?
