Conversations About Divorce – What Does A Good Divorce Look Like?
The word alone carries tremendous negativity, judgment and fear and divorce is commonly portrayed in the media as hostile and high-conflict. Amicable or civil divorces aren't considered news unless there's a novelty factor associated with them like Gynweth Paltrow's "conscious uncoupling."
Often, our own beliefs and expectations around divorce pushes us to stay in unhealthy relationships and we procrastinate or delay ending our marriage.
