Some celebrity divorces are quick painless, while others seem to linger for years. To illustrate this point, think of Britney Spears’ quick first marriage, and even quicker end to that union. Compare and contrast Spears case with that of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. Pitt and Aniston divorced nearly ten years ago, but the tabloids still print stories about the pair on a regular basis. Divorce can be messy business, and doing it in the public spotlight can make it even messier. When children are involved, it is important to give the couple privacy, and realize celebrities are just like the rest of us, only with better hair and skin.
One couple that has been in the media lately for a possible split is Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. Whether they actually split remains to be seen, and in the meantime a popular paper gives Jennifer this advice, which we can all take to heart:
● Pick and choose who you confide in, and steer clear of those that simply want to tell you how hard marriage is and that you gave it your all. These types of conversations can be degrading, and do little to help you move past the pain of divorce.
● Explain the divorce to your kids in age appropriate ways and language.
● Reconnect with old friends, or read a book when your kids are with your ex.
It is always wise to enlist the assistance of a qualified family law attorney to resolve the legal issues that go along with getting divorced, but how you spend your personal time healing is your own business. Taking time for yourself and making your own decisions will help you to regain the confidence needed to enjoy a happy post-divorce life. We can help guide you towards resources that will help you refocus your energy, and give you the emotional tools needed to live life as a single person again. Our goal is to make sure the legalities of your case are resolved fairly, and to your satisfaction, and that you find emotional peace as well.
