My ex-husband (he is the one that wanted the divorce) continues to say that he wants to stay friends and doesn't want to lose me in his life. I do not understand this as normally when you cut ties you need to cut all of them.

I'm sorry. I'm going through the same exact thing right now. My ex keeps throwing around that he doesn't want to throw away 6 years and that we should remain friends. It's very hard to see him as just a friend right now, and to be honest, I don't want to be his friend right now. I think I need some time to get my feelings in check and then later on we can be friends in the future. I think it's hard to imagine not being with that person that you were with and so for him to think it's easy peasy "let's be friends" is a selfish move on his part. Just be honest with him. You need your time. You are hurt. If you want to talk more, you can inbox me.1
