I’ve been divorced for almost 15 years and I never know what to put on a form that asks for my marital status.
Queenie, should I still say “divorced” or can I start to say “single” again?—Questionnaire Etty Ket
Dear Etty Ket,
No matter how long you have been divorced, you are still a divorcee – a person who used to be married. Calling yourself “single” is no longer accurate.
