Hello and welcome. Thank you for visiting www.movingpastdivorce.com. We are a mother and daughter team with unique qualifications as authors, presenters, and coaches on the topic of divorce. We started this website because our mission is to help women who grew up in divorced homes make healthy choices in their relationships. Our book, Daughters of Divorce (published by Sourcebooks in January 2016) is about and for women who grew up in divorced households. Many daughters of divorce have trouble trusting their partners, fear their relationships will not succeed, and struggle with issues related to self-worth. A history of divorce in a girl’s childhood can predict ambivalence towards commitment in intimate relationships. With respect to divorce proneness, women whose parents divorced are more likely to enter marriage with lower confidence in the future of their marriage, potentially raising their risk of divorce. Daughters of Divorce helps women develop the tools to create lasting love in their lives.
We are equally interested in helping men and women who are going through their own breakup and need support and guidance in this new chapter of their lives. Divorce is a complex event that presents people with a unique set of challenges, transitions, and losses. But for women, who are more likely to define themselves through relationships, divorce can be a particularly challenging experience. The legacy of divorce is often passed onto children but some of the negative impact can be lessened if we have tools to overcome challenges. We offer resources to people of all ages dealing with fractured relationships – whether as a single woman, single parent, remarried person; or an adult child of divorce.
Even though divorce no longer carries its old stigma in our culture, it still hurts as much as ever. While people’s reasons for divorcing vary, there are many emotions and transitions that have to be dealt with as family members rebuild their lives. Recent evidence has demonstrated that divorced individuals and their children (into adulthood) have higher rates of depression, lower levels of life satisfaction, and more health problems than married people or children from intact homes. Given these facts, it makes sense that divorced individuals and their children can benefit from support to navigate the dicey waters of post-divorce life.
