Because we have a daughter, we took about a year to figure things out and get the divorce. The divorce was extremely amicable on both sides though the preceeding year had lots of emotional ups and downs.
It helped that I was completely honest with her (painful as that was to hear) and we are both 100% committed to our kid.
As we both work on finding someone new to love, we are still best friends and act as each other's sounding board to bounce things off of. She has my back and I have hers.
