Read a message from NYD Founder Sara to see if this group might be a good fit for you:

I was getting divorced and I didn’t know how to do it. I didn’t know a single divorced person under the age of 40, and most of my friends weren’t married yet, let alone watching the hopes and dreams of their young lives crumble in front of their eyes. I was totally freaking out.

I googled endlessly and read articles about divorce and lawyers and feelings. I went on Goodreads to look for a self-help guide to get me through it. What I realized very quickly was that most books for divorce are geared at parents looking to preserve the happiness of their children despite the breakdown of their family unit. The second most common “divorce book genre” I found was self-help books geared at Baby Boomer women whose husbands had cheated on them. These books seemed to mostly be aimed to help these women get back on the dating scene.

I was 29 years old. The dating scene was wide open to me, and I was pleased to re-enter it. I didn’t need that kind of help, not really.

What I wanted was some kind of community. A way to hear about other people just like me, who were young and childless, and also all of a sudden husbandless. I wanted to know that the feelings I felt were normal for what I was going through, and that rebuilding my identity could happen successfully, happily, and hopefully with some speed.

I’ve founded Nashville Young Divorcees so that as a community, young divorcees can support one another. I don’t want anyone to ever feel as alone as I did in those early days of my new divorced life.

So welcome, friend. You’re divorced? Me too.

-Sara, Nashville Young Divorcees Founder
