the meaning of "responsible divorce"

In these pages, you will find many different opinions about what constitutes a responsible divorce. These are not just abstract definitions, like dictionary definitions would be. They include some sense of what in the lives of these people led them to think what they think.

I invite you to read what people say, to think about your own situation, and to define what is right for you under your circumstances.

This can help you keep some perspective on how you are handling your own divorce and the post-divorce relationship with your ex.

I believe it is a good idea for you to have such a discussion with any divorce professional you work with.
