I often liken people’s stories of the legal divorce process to childbirth stories. There are always twists and turns and surprises. Unlike childbirth however, there’s no pain-free way to experience divorce:
The things I had to endure from my ex were so unbearable, thinking I was going to end up in a shelter. Missing my child was so unbearable. I just felt like I was losing it. I would jump in my car, drive over to the beach and I would start talking to God. I would start meditating.
Marjorie and her husband were married for just over six years before they separated Two months before they legally separated Marjorie told her husband she wanted a divorce. He asked her to hold off filing and she did only to later find herself arrested on contrived domestic abuse, being barred from returning home and losing custody of her daughter.
