Divorce support expert
thanks for sharing your story.
First of all you are absolutely right about the Divorce/Break up issue. A divorce is just a legal ending to a legal commitment(marriage) and breaking up from any relationship, married or un-married, has the same emotional implications.
You ask yourself quite a few "what if" questions.
My straight forward advice, is to keep figuring it out as you have done and are dong it.
You have naturally evolved into a situation which serves both of you and however unusual it may be, it suits you. The day something else will need to happen or someone else will come into your lives, your situation will again naturally evolve and change in the manner that will be suiting all the party concerned.
You have dealt maturely with your situation until now, trust that this will happen when new plans will need to be made. You obviously respect each other in the separate directions you have both chosen while cherishing a lasting friendship. When the time comes, you will know what will be right for everyone.
I wish you all the best.
Love and Gratitude
