Divorce Magazine is a resource for people going through a divorce or separation. Now, you have professionals who can help you navigate through this hard time with ease, in one place.
The most important thing to know is this: there is help.
They say kids of divorce may have all sorts of issues when their parents separate or divorce.
They can have emotional and behavioral problems, maybe drug addictions, low self-esteem, and failed marriages. My life and the lives of my siblings are prime examples of what takes place in a family torn apart.
I believe with healthy treatment, coaching, counselling and other modalities, kids can overcome all of these negative pitfalls.
That is what Divorce Magazine is for: to guide and help those going through a divorce or separation with less dis-ease.
According to Statistics Canada, about 38 percent of all marriages that took place in 2004 will have ended in divorce by 2035. The total divorce rate is down slightly from its peak of about 41 percent in the mid -1980s, but slightly higher than the rate of about 37 percent recorded in the mid -1990s.
The idea of a traditional family is changing drastically. Divorce is also changing the demographics of households and communities across Canada. If the last twenty years are any indication, this trend shows no sign of reverting back to what was once seen as the “normal” household. The old picture of what a family should look like (a husband and wife, children, dog) really is not the norm anymore. If you are going through a divorce or thinking of getting a divorce, it is important to remember you are not alone in the process, in a legal or a social sense.
Separation and divorce are stressful and painful. The way you choose to resolve the issues can make it worse or better. You decide on the road to take.
