When- am I allowed to check single....instead of divorcd?

I am tired of being an ex-wife.....
When am I allowed to check ...single....instead of divorced?
How long do you have to be widowed to be single?
I have realized that divorce is somewhat of a developmental process....my expectations.....that my ex and I would be friendly...that we would n't disparage each other...that the kids would keep us from exercising poor judgement......all wrong.
For me - I had to stop thinking about my ex.....and move on....not depending on him....not seeing him as a supporter or a detractor.....
Kind of took the pressure off.....we are at a place of cease fire.....
