The Divorced

Are you completely healed from your divorce? Trust me, if you aren’t, it’s okay! It’s a pretty dramatic experience for anyone to undertake, especially if you believe vows are meant to last forever. You put in the work needed, compromised and focused your desires to satisfy your significant other.
