Nobody wants to get divorced or expects to when they get married.
I was for sure that I had the person who I’d be spending the rest of my life with. But like so many other things in life, that’s just not the way it all turned out. Now that I’m on my own again, I have all the stuff like HVAC equipment on me. There is no husband to anymore to change the air filter each month. I’m the one who changes the air filter and then walks the house to make sure that all the air ducts are open. All of the household stuff is on me now. But really, I think this is an improvement and I’d bet a wad of money that my ex husband feels the exact same way. We’re lucky that we came out of that disaster of a marriage still friends. In fact, I think that’s what we were all along. Getting married to each other was just not the best decision. We didn’t have kids so the actual living apart thing wasn’t as tough. Still, I’m getting used to being a solo homeowner. But one thing that is a whole lot easier with me in charge is the HVAC maintenance. That’s because I joined the HVAC service plan provided by the HVAC company I use. They take care of everything. I don’t have to remember the heating maintenance or the air conditioning tune-up. They just shoot me an email and I respond. This way, the HVAC equipment is definitely getting what it needs without me forgetting to do it.
