Regardless of the struggles that existed in the relationship pre-divorce, most divorced (or divorcing) people tend to treat their exes the same way they treated them when they were together.
It surprised many when the divorce between megabucked media mogul Peter Brant and his supermodel wife, Stephanie Seymour, became a War-and-Peace-of-the-Roses kind of situation. Yesterday, they shocked the judge presiding over their divorce proceedings by announcing that they wanted to reconcile.
Through divorce, one of life's greatest challenges, we learn that we can survive the worst, we gain the wisdom we need, and we learn to tolerate uncertainty.
One of the most common questions we ask ourselves during the transition of divorce is also one of the most profound existential questions: "Who am I?"
Another difficult thing about divorce is that, more often than not, the ex-spouses don't have a similar approach to parenting. My husband's oldest daughter has started asking about getting her own e-mail address, and (not surprisingly) mom and dad aren't in agreement about what to tell her.
"Eat, Pray, Love" -- the story of one woman's journey from a devastating breakup to loving again -- is an inspiration to many women going through divorce.
