Separation & Divorce is Normal

Separation & Divorce is Normal

If half of society is ending relationships through separation and divorce, does that not mean that, separation and divorce is “normal”?

After facilitating the Separation and Divorce Self-Help Group of York Region for the past four years and working with individuals, families and children who are going through separation and divorce I believe it is time to look at separation and divorce as “normal”

It is time to stop whispering that you are separated and/or divorced, it is time for all of us to accept that people who are in a committed relationships no matter, five, ten or twenty years long has come to an end for one reason or another.

If we start to normalize separation and divorce people may start to become aware and start looking at their relationships before the end becomes “high conflict” and high priced.

Separation and divorce is not a death, it is a break up of a relationship that simply does not function with civility, respect and love.

The question is, why don’t we accept the facts, that separation and divorce is normal? I understand that failure, disappointment and guilt starts to take over and the road ahead looks grim and uncertain. The fact of the matter is separation and divorce is a very sad and traumatic time in a persons’ life. How to deal with it is what needs to happen next.

In the Separation and Divorce Self-Help Group of York Region we discuss tools to grieve this time in a person’s life.
