Divorce is tough, no matter how amicable. If you or someone you love is considering divorce, this episode of SelfWork will walk you through what you may be able to expect. Dr. Margaret offers some surprising facts about divorce, and reveals six ways to be your best self during what can be a difficult life transition. Or at least try to be your best. How you choose an attorney, what you may need to consider about the emotional support you’re receiving, taking divorce breaks – all these factors are important, and when chosen wisely, can prevent a divorce from getting completely out of control. She’ll also answer a reader’s question about what’s difficult about being an older “child,” or an adult with children yourself, when parents divorce after many years — what’s termed “gray divorce.”
Here are the links mentioned in the broadcast:
- The New York Times’ report that divorce is on the decline.
- Here’s a link about being an adult when your parents divorce.
- And a You Tube video about the movie “Adult Children of Divorce.”
