Which Box Do You Mark?
When I fill out paperwork and it’s something that asks if I am single, married, divorced, or widowed I always wonder which box I am supposed to mark. Sometimes I can check more than once, but if I am filling the form out online, I can only choose one. So which one? I was married. I am divorced. I am single. So do I choose single? Do I choose divorced? And for the record, my divorce was over a decade ago so it feels like the marriage almost never really even happened. And then to further complicate things, what if I married the guy, divorced him, remarried him, and he passed away? Then which box would I choose? See the dilemma? It’s not so easy, is it?! Would you be divorced, widowed, married, single? And sometimes does it even matter? I mean, unless I am doing something where a spouse/mate/partner needs to help make the decision, I don’t think it has much bearing. But why all the freaking confusion?!
Anyone else confused? So which box do you mark?
