Bossy’s Unhusband can fix anything. Here he borrowed a neighbor’s desktop magnifying glass in order to mend a broken link on one of Bossy’s necklaces.
Not only is he capable in matters of wood, metal, masonry, leather, synthetics, plumbing, electrical, landscape, and mechanics — but he has the brain of an engineer, the hands of a surgeon, and the caring nature to want to help, even six months into an Undivorce.

Bossy’s Unhusband rocks – but then, he always has! And that is the COOLEST magnifying glass ever!! I think I want Santa to bring me one.

–>Bossy’s unhusband is very similar to my husband. I call him Tim the Tool Man.

My husband is the same way. He put in a storm door a few weeks ago, and it looks so nice.

Lovely. I can only hope my wife feels similarly about her husband.
Kate saysNovember 1, 2010 at 10:59 am
oh, Bossy. You are breaking my heart. I am sending you a great big (and completely useless) internet hug.
britni saysNovember 1, 2010 at 11:57 am

I seriously nearly cried just now. And you’re in my humor folder.

When my parents divorced, they never spoke again. EVER. When there was the 1994 earthquake here in LA, my mom waited to see it on CNN International rather than call my Dad to see if my sister and I were okay.
They each went on to marry other people and were much happier in those relationships. HOWEVER, my sister and I never wanted to get married (and haven’t) based on the acrimony that came out of that union.

Maybe bossy’s unhusband could teach my husband something. My husband can’t fix anything, but he is a musician after all.
Bri saysNovember 1, 2010 at 1:38 pm
He really is a gem. And so are you Bossy.
I imagine that if my husband and I ever end up seperated that he would still be that helpful dude who just cant say no to lending a helping hand.
My heart feels all achey with all of this. I can only imagine how you all must feel.
km saysNovember 1, 2010 at 2:40 pm
Dear Bossy, everything I read now from you makes me want to give you a hug.
<<<<>>>>> There. Now don’t you feel better.

I saw the announcement post and now this. Only you, Bossy, and your unhusband can know what is right for you and your children whether it is to continue on (mostly) separate paths or come back together. I am rooting for both of you, whatever your new life (un)together might mean. That said, I counsel a lot of couples (Episocpal priest) and sometimes we need space to breathe and establish new boundaries before continuing in a marriage. I also wanted to add that when counseling couples preparing for marriage, the ones I worry about most are those who say their parents were perfect and never had any conflict. If you and your unhusband can show your children how you can disagree and yet remain either married or friends or co-parents, that will be a great gift to them. Hugs to you and yours.

Bossy, you and your unhusband have one of the most humble and mature undivorces I’ve ever seen. Thank you for being so honest with this, and for reminding me that not all ex-relationships have to be filled with hate.
