Through the years we have come to recognize that we might end up living together some day, especially when we get to the age where we need to take care of one another. But for now, this is working for us.
OMG, I am so envious of this. I need my alone time, and I also find it very fulfilling to actually get to touch the remote control on occasion.

In reply to the initial question, "Divorced, now what?'' I would say get married again asap. Family lawyers need a farm team.

BTW, what would be "something else", not covered by the choices? Gone gay, and my state does not allow me to marry?

I suppose that could be a potential answer.

I remarried 5 years after being single again. It took a couple of years after the divorce to be comfortable with dating but then it became an interesting experience with so many opportunities. I don't see my present marriage ending until one of us is no longer living. If I'm still around then I don't see me wanting to break in another wife. I'm getting too long in the tooth for that.

DW and I met at 17, married at 21 , and just FIRE'd and celebrated our 36th anniversary together. It's kind of amazing, as I'm rather an extreme INTJ personality. Alone time has never been an issue, because we can be quietly alone together. Should anything happen that we're no longer together, and I can't envision a divorce, I see no possibility of remarriage because she could not be replaced. I doubt I would ever even date, because I would still be married - no matter what.
