Going through a divorce is the second most stressful life event next to the passing of a loved one. When a loved one dies, we have numerous traditions and rituals that ensure that we have support to help us grieve. In contrast, divorce is too often experienced alone. While we encourage our divorce clients to seek support of friends, family and therapists, that doesn't work for everyone. Sometimes friends and family don't understand, and therapy isn't the answer for everyone.
When some options don't work, that doesn't necessarily mean that you have to go through your divorce alone. It is important to realize that other people are experiencing the loss of divorce as well and in some cases sharing that experience can be useful. Divorce Support Groups are one way to find that support and there are options for both women and men:
