Divorce-a-phobes (not divorces) are toxic to society

October 31, 2009

What do you think? Personally, I think this Psychology Today post has a lot of merit. When I first started Brilliant Exits, LLC I was amazed at how people would visibly flinch when I explained I helped people through the chaos and complexities of divorce.

Given the mates we’ve chosen, some of us have no choice but to divorce. No matter whether you are the leaver or leavee it’s devastating. Society needs to understand that and be empathetic, rather than slam an expensive legal exit fee on divorce as punishment. That strategy only leads to more dangerous domestic violence not stronger, committed marriages.
