divorce

Nobody goes into a marriage expecting it not to work, but, as we know, about half of marriages unfortunately do end. During the past few years, I went through my own experience of family breakup, which was, like every other such situation, extremely challenging both practically and emotionally. A family split has a profound effect on everyone involved, none more, of course, than the children. What helped me through the most wrenching days — and there were many — was the support of friends, family, and others who had gone through the process.

Picture this: you just separated from the other parent of your children. The foundation of your life has crumbled, and you face a lifetime still connected to the person associated with the most intense sadness, hurt, and anger you have ever felt. That’s how co-parenting starts for many. That’s how it started for me.

Creating a new life which supported my children and me while surviving tidal waves of emotion was hard and lonely.

It’s hard to think that your relationship with your love could be ripped apart by something as simple as money. Sadly, statistics continue to indicate that money matters are the leading cause of separation and divorce in North America.

Not surprisingly money matters comprise eight out of every ten arguments between couples and that’s because everything that you and your honey do with your money is a reflection of deeply rooted values that you both learned growing up.
