In fact, sometimes people who file for divorce are still a bit unsure about whether they’re doing the right thing.

  1. Dr. Thomas Maples says:

    Divorce is a real tragedy in a person’s life. It effects the children first and foremost… even though the relationship itself is cemented for life through the addition of children. It is a blessing that you had a good surrogate for teaching what it means to be a father, even if it was not your biological father. We are born into a family, but choose our family moving on.

    Thank you for this example.

    There is healthy ways to end a relationship… I will explore more in tomorrow’s video about ways to overcome the 5 warning signs.

  2. One of the biggest issues with Divorce is how the couple handles it. I’m the daughter of a divorced couple, and it was such a huge drama because one of the elements didn’t have maturity enough to end the situation with healthy manners.
    Everyone loses, but in my honest opinion, children are the ones who suffer the most with it.
    I know how it feels, but at least I had a great grandfather who was like a father for us.
