Divorce may mean the end of your marriage but it’s not the end of your relationship with your spouse:
Staying connected with your ex doesn’t mean a cozy relationship and it doesn’t mean a daily relationship. It just means a recognition that once you have kids together, however you look at it, you’re connected for life through the children.

Her book Wisdom for Separated Parents is a collection of stories about the ways couples have rearranged their relationships and stayed connected following divorce. Judy’s concept of “rearranging” truly reflects the process of ending a marriage.
