Megan McConnell’s divorce: UPDATE
After filing divorce papers, Megan decided to take a trip to visit her sister, in which she seriously contemplated moving. The change of scenery was exactly what she needed after feeling trapped for years.
The divorce will be final in 73 days, not that she’s counting. (Yes, that was sarcasm.)
Megan has been a stay at home mom for quite some time now, but has been applying for quite a few jobs recently, not only to provide for her son, but to have an option of getting out of the house and meeting new people, and having some adult interaction.
She is currently living at her parent’s house but is saving up to move out on her own.
Megan has already filed child support and custody papers, and because Nathan does not live anywhere that has a bedroom for Blake, it’s looking like she is going to receive full custody.
After the split, Nathan went 12 days without asking about Blake, and then asked to have him for a weekend. Worried about the fact that he had seemingly paid no attention to his absence, Megan had to think about it. Though reluctant, she knows that her son needs a father, and Blake is currently visiting his dad for 3 days. This is the longest Megan has been without him in some time and is a little lost about what she’s supposed to do with herself.
Other than the complications a divorce can bring, Megan has realized how wonderful her friends and family truly are and has been doing great, emotionally. She is happier than she has been in as long as she can remember, and is extremely happy with her decision.
