What It's Like To Attend A Wedding As A Divorced Woman

I dislike going to weddings, unless a member of my immediate family is engaged in the ring exchange.

I have become “that” woman, sitting at a table with seven other older singles: the never-married; the widows and occasional widower, and perhaps one like myself with the D word – divorced. Often, one is described as having “special challenges.” Usually by the man in the next seat. Sometimes he has wayward hands.
