Bumping to say...
Today is the 6 month anniversary of our first date. We've had to postpone celebrating for logistical reasons but plan on a nice dinner out on the Labour Day weekend.
We still have yet to have any sort of a fight. Barely even any mild disagreements. We both have tempers so it's weird that there have been no issues that way. And a bit of a relief. Nice, calm, rational conversation beats yelling any day. Even for someone who *likes* to yell sometimes. (That would be me.)
Still talking long term but he has to get divorced before anything can happen, though there are some preliminary things we can do. His ex is dragging her feet and has unrealistic expectations of what she should receive in support and in the division of assets so that's stressing him out but not stressing our relationship
. But she's apparently talking about moving back to her hometown so that may hurry the process along a little so she can get everything finalized before she goes.
I've been helping him help out his parents. They have a wood burning furnace and so have to get the wood in and under cover so it's good and dry before winter. We did most of it the first weekend in August. I think his parents will be really mad at him if we ever break up.
