This group is for those in their 20s and 30s dealing with the emotional rollercoaster ride that comes from separation or divorce. The purpose of this group is to provide emotional support and moral. Our main means of interacting and supporting each other is through a twice-monthly meeting. Details regarding our meetings are only disclosed to members.
Each group meeting is facilitated by nonprofessionals – others who have been through the ups and downs that come with separation or divorce. We are simply a group of concerned people helping people.
We are a “first-come, first serve” group (if your estranged or former spouse wants to join at any point, they will respectfully be turned away and directed to join another support group in the area.)
Safety and Privacy: We take the safety and privacy of all our group members very seriously. The Meetup settings are designed so that group events and members are only seen by people inside the group.
For the safety of all members, we REQUIRE a face picture in your meetup profile.
It is recommended that members NOT meet unknown members outside of group meetings and group events.
Those that do not comply with our safety recommendations will be BLOCKED from the group.
Social Opportunities: There are social opportunities that take place in addition to our regular support meetings, if you choose to participate. Many find that it’s healthy to get out, be active, and interact with others – it combats the tendency toward isolation & depression that comes with separation or divorce, and reinforces that there is life (fun, laughter, joy, community) after separation or divorce.
We REQUIRE that you participate in a Regular Support Meeting or Coffee and Conversation Meeting BEFORE participating in the social events.
It is important for all members to understand that this is NOT a dating group. Unwelcomed advances are NOT acceptable behavior and those that do not comply will be BLOCKED from the group.
Separation and divorce are very difficult and painful, and members commonly find comfort in meeting others who know what the divorce/separated experience is all about – you’ll quickly find that you are not alone! Tremendous bonds of friendship have been forged and continue beyond the scope of the group (the comment is often made that people wish they had found this group sooner). Several members who have gone through the divorce process continue to stay active in the group because they feel that they have something to share with others who are going through this phase in their life.
We hope you will join us.
