Andrew,

You cannot compare the end of this R with your ex leaving. B hasnít shared your life for 20 odd years, producing children and a lifetime of memories.

She has not reached the stage your ex did of Ďis this it? Iíve done the wife and mother thing. Time for my MLC and wanting a life backí.

This is a fledgling romance, that hit the skids, as countless do.

You will see, as others have said, she has done you the biggest favour.

I know youíre hurting, but please look now to your Spanish trip (thank God you booked it) and enjoy every minute.

You will be absolutely fine. You know this.
