Adapted from a recent online discussion about explaining one's divorce to a date (continued from yesterday):

Dear Carolyn:

When my longtime boyfriend was describing his divorce to me, I found that the actual story wasn't as important to me as the way he talked about his marriage and his ex-wife. I felt ready to proceed with him because he showed neither longing nor anger. He expressed regret, but he was quite even in tone when he talked about the mistakes each had made.

I like it, thanks.

Blameless excuse for a divorce: My spouse decided s/he was gay.
