    Anything you maybe should regret, but don't?

    Yes, I am glad I married my wife from whom I am now divorced.  We were married for almost ten years.  It was my second marriage.  She taught me a lot about marriage, about love, about women.  The ending of our marriage "forced" me to confront my alcoholism which I have and have been sober now for almost two years.  If I had been sober, I probably would have seen her insight that we were not meant for each other before we were married.  But I have learned a great deal from the entire experience all of which I do not think I could have learned any other way.  The ending of our marriage was extremely painful and sad.  I sobbed for months.  And that is how endings are--sad, but nevertheless invaluable experiences.  Thanks for letting me share.
