Real life, rarely measures up to those mental pictures of what our future will be in a beautiful home or on a great vacation - that's true whether we remain married or get divorced. Still, you are grieving a loss of how you hoped your life would be. That's a very real thing and houses hold feelings. We've been in ours 37 years. The house has been a source of stress, but some day when we go, it will be hard to say goodbye, to close the door on that chapter of our lives.

The tears will stop at some point. Wishing you the best.
