Summer is when Deb got divorced and she saw it as her Independence Day. What does divorce mean to us all? Is it the end of a contract? Does it mean we never loved at all? Did we fail? Deb, A Wiser Woman who got a divorce, explains how it saved the relationship with her “was-band” and left her with 20 years of beautiful memories.
Listen to This: I want a DIVORCE because nothing is forever
“It’s a different world than it used to be.” – as Deb put so aptly. She and her husband knew each other for THREE WEEKS before they got married. Ga-ga-what?
From The Huff Po – a sunnier side: Could the Way We Think About Divorce Be All Wrong?
One of the most interesting findings from Feldhahn’s new book reveals that, for troubled relationships, “If a couple stays married for five years, almost 80 percent of those couples will be happy five years later.”
Do the facts/statistics about divorce have any baring on whether your relationship will survive? Weigh in in comments below!
Would you stick it out to the end? What if things change? What if YOU change?
HOW DID DEB KNOW?
She thought she was drowning
WHEN DID SHE TAKE ACTION?
Pretty quickly for Deb. In a few months. She was happy for 20 of the 25 years they were together. Lauren and Maayan were shocked because we had The War of the Roses in mind. Looks more like this:
There was nothing to think about – she knew she wanted FREEDOM and she didn’t feel it.
Deb did it despite having pretty young children (under 15). He moved just down the street and ultimately, they were happier because THEIR PARENTS were happier.
No judgments, not good or bad. Simple evolution.

Poached eggs using these silicone cups! They’re awesome.
