This group is for women of all ages who have experienced divorce, are contemplating divorce, or who have gone through the life-altering breakup of a long-term relationship. We are women in all stages of the divorce process and even those whose divorce occurred many years ago. Some of us are in new romantic partnerships while others are not even close to being ready for this step.
Having gone through a divorce after 24 years of marriage, I have experienced the common feelings of shock, ambivalence, loneliness, isolation, grief, disorientation, fear, excitement, and countless others. I created the community I wish had been available to me--a safe place for women to come as they are, no matter how broken, angry, devastated, terrified, or confused. Here you will be able to share your story, find the support you need, and begin to heal. Conversely, if you are a divorce "veteran," we welcome your experience, strength and hope.
I apologize in advance that we are not the right group for you if you have been widowed. We have found that divorce is a singular experience and have chosen to restrict our membership to women with this common bond.
NOTE: The leadership team has decided that we will no longer charge dues. We want to make the group accessible to all! However, we still need to pay Meetup's fee of approximately $200/year. We are asking for voluntary cash contributions (even a small amount like $5 would be a great help!). Your financial support is needed to keep the group going and very much appreciated.
