Hello to everyone who explores this group!
The Divorce Support Group of Milwaukee was formed in March of 2007. Over the last several years we have grown to a group of over 300+ members with many new members joining each month as others leave and move on. We have met at various locations in downtown Milwaukee and the surrounding areas and each meetup has grown in the number of participants.
First of all, we would like to say that the members are a very casual group who are all in some phase of divorce, whether it be newly separated, just filing, battling in court, divorce papers in hand or divorced for several years. Our group consists of various ages, men and women and from all areas of Milwaukee as well as the surrounding suburbs. Some have children, young and old, still living at home, others are empty nesters while others never had children. What you should know is that all are welcome to join and the process is very simple. Several questions must be answered and a current photo must be uploaded to become a member. Your privacy is very important to us and your information will remain private. The group is private and only members can see your pictures or read information on the site. We understand how difficult divorce is and therefore, only one person from a divorcing couple may be approved for membership. The person who joins first will always remain the approved member and we will deny the other as many members use the message boards to seek advise and discuss their situation so we are sure you understand how important this rule is and why we carefully monitor the site.
Our goal is to develop an ongoing support group, make new friendships and to move forward with the rest of our lives in a positive manner. All of us will have ups and downs and many bumps along the way, but if we focus our efforts on giving and receiving support, healing and eventually, " Letting Go and Moving On", we will survive and in the end become much stronger. Divorce is devastating and no one should go through this process alone.
The larger our group becomes the more opportunities we will have to develop more friendships, socialize with people who understand our situations and give as well as seek support. Sharing experiences and information on divorce, helping others who are less fortunate and learning to cope with the many different changes that happen during divorce.
Finally, continuing to live life, one day at a time.
We welcome you to join us on our journey.
Thank you for visiting The Divorce Support Group Meetup site.
