A year after I got divorced my uncle told me that it takes 2 years to get over being angry in a divorce situation.  I asked him if that was 2 years after the divorce, or 2 years after the kids are grown and I didn't see him every other weekend.  Grin

I've heard the quote that it takes about half the length of time you were in the relationship. (And at least for relationships less than about a decade, this seems to be true in my experience.)

I was involved with my ex-husband for 6 years, and married for 4, and have been divorced for 3 and change. There was a real shift in the last six months from having continuing strong emotions about some pieces of it to now being "Eh. I move on, I luxuriate in my success, and don't worry about him." Even emailing him a piece of news he needed to know (death of his former boss's wife: she worked for the school I work for when I started, which is how I knew) wasn't too painful.

(though I have not yet replied to his "So, how are things with you?" response to that email after he thanked me for letting him know.)
