"It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then."
- Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Two women, a similar story, a fair bit of wine, and a great idea…
Are you in or near your “mid-life” and feeling unsettled, discontent, uncomfortable or unhappy? We’ve been there. Finding you are more and more burned out and tapped out by work, marriage, parenting, daily decision-making and life in general? Yup, we get it. Thinking a lot about divorce as the only inevitable option, but there are still reasons to stay and try? Absolutely empathize. Ready to take the first steps towards considering separation or divorce, but feeling anxious and afraid and not sure where to start? You’re absolutely not alone.
We created this site for you, for us, for all the women we know who have been, currently are, or will be, in this same spot.
We’re not the experts, and we can’t (and would not try) to tell you what to do. But we have spent a lot of time (and money) consulting with and hiring the experts. We can share our experience and their guidance for navigating separation and divorce, so that you feel less alone, less worried, and on more solid ground. You don’t have to settle for anything less.
