This is the beginning of post about People affected by Divorce. Stories that will be so uplifting, that your worries will pale into insignificance. On the other hand, accounts so shocking, you will wonder how anyone got through it to even share their Story.
All the same, you are invited, yes, encouraged to share your story with those who listen to Divorce Talk Live the podcast(http://anchor.fm/divorcetalk). Perhaps, even being interviewed and featured. Or, maybe by lending us your thoughts in this Blog as an observation of someone else’s experience.
HARD CORE FACTS– source: CDC/NCHS National Vital Statistics System
In the year 2018 there were 2,132,853 marriages in the United States. During that same year there were 782,038 divorces and annulments.
What does that mean for those these things happened too? What will it mean for the rest of us?
Each of us probably know someone that is divorced or that is in the process of getting a divorce. Truthfully, we may know someone whose marriage experience was so bad, that they will never try to marry again. Is that someone you? Then again, maybe the divorce we witnessed was that of our parents or grandparents, and because of that we are running fast away from the marital relationship.
How do you feel about marriage, divorce, paying alimony or child support? What about the court system that is charged with enforcing divorce orders? What effect does this process have on the Judges, Lawyers and others that handle these cases on a daily basis? The podcast and this blog will give these questions and more fair consideration. But, not because we are the experts. Rather, because you are willing to share your story.
