I held my ex-wife’s hand, the two of them looked at each other, no one told each other that this decision was the right one.
Last weekend was my son’s 5th birthday, so I bought a present for my ex-wife’s house. My wife and I have been divorced for more than a year now, due to irreconcilable family conflicts. When I arrived, I saw that my ex-wife had prepared a birthday cake, she did not invite guests, just the three of us.
Although in the past, we had to go to court for a divorce when we had a severe conflict, but over time we have also tried to behave civilly to raise our children together. After the small party ended, it rained heavily, I waited forever to not stop the rain. My son kept asking his father to sleep over, so I agreed and shared a room with him.
After coaxing my son to sleep, I happened to see some of the pictures he drew on the small table. Every picture shows three people, including father, mother and Bin (my child’s home name).
Looking at the full picture of a family of 3, and remembering the bright smile and bright eyes of my son when blowing out the candles, being with both parents, I feel so bitter and apologetic.
Parents divorce, the most disadvantaged are the children, and adults, the pain will also pass and then have a new life. Currently, my ex-wife and I are both unmarried, but in the future we will remarry and have other children. Surely my son must be very sorry and heartbroken.
During the divorce period, reflecting on the previous conflicts between me and my ex-wife was not irreconcilable, just needed each person to lower their ego a little. That night, I slept with my son, I stayed up all night, and a few days later, when I came home, I was still thinking about it. Finally, I went to my ex-wife to clarify my thoughts. After listening, she nodded in agreement to come back.
When the son learned that his parents were going to live in the same house, he was overjoyed. I held my ex-wife’s hand, the two of them looked at each other, no one told each other that this decision was the right one.
