Ok, simple question it would seem: I got married over 13 years ago, but we’ve been separated now for just over a year, and I’ve been told to look for the final divorce papers being served any day now. (Yes, great timing to do this around Valentine’s day.)
So, do I count the 12 years before we separated, or the 13 until it became ‘officially’ dead?
What does everyone else do?
(yes, I know this is a pretty subjective question and that it just doesn’t matter much and will matter even less after a while, but I’m curious. I want to be ready when someone asks me, “how long were you married?”)
