Yep.

Protip: Don't get a divorce. It's the most emotionally draining thing I've ever done that didn't involve a person passing away.

Just discovered your channel - inspirational! And I agree wholeheartedly with the above. Horrific. And if you can't avoid getting divorced, don't get married again. Unless you're absolutely sure. Erm......

Heheh, yeah, it always seems so sure at the time doesn't it? :-/

It's all good now though. Just settled in to my own place, got some renewed certainty with my job, things are looking up! :)
