My job is to help my clients with the legal aspects of divorce. I am not counselor or therapist, pastor or even friend, though I do become quite friendly with most of my clients. At the same time, I know that there are lots of issues in divorce that are not strictly legal that my clients need to deal with and become accustomed to. Things like being on their own, or having separate holiday celebrations or living in a smaller space. But even though I can’t necessarily advise my clients on many of these issues, I like to pass along great information when I receive it, such as this article about what this mother learned after nine years of separation.
What has your separation taught you that you didn’t expect?
