Episode Description

There is nothing easy about divorce and despite the statistics, it is a journey that most people don’t want to take. In this episode, Audrey Cade, author of Divorce Matters: Help for Hurting Hearts and Why Divorce is Sometimes the Best Decision, offers a very realistic look at the When, Why and How of Coping with Divorce. With the wisdom of someone who has been through it, this matriarch of a blended family of eight is as clear about the need to take steps to try save your marriage as she is realistic about the anguish of realizing you can’t. Using her own journey as a starting point she addresses what most people facing divorce are rarely prepared to handle. From grieving the loss of a dream, to telling the children, accepting the Facebook gossip, dealing with the nerve-wracking legal maze, spending less time with your kids, forgiving self, to dealing with somebody else’s ex, she offers valuable advice without the sugar coating. Sad, mad, sometimes funny, Audrey Cade will pass on to you her lessons learned.
