Well, I’d say these 10 quotes about divorce pretty much sum it all up.
I’ve been in the divorce industry for a long time. 15 years. First (and currently) as the managing attorney of Levine Family Law Group, and now as the CEO and Founder of Hello Divorce. Over the years, I have overheard clients and their spouse’s talk about everything from parenting schedules and equalization payments to reimbursements for funds spent on hookers and drugs.
But every so often, I hear a quote that is just too good not to share. I compiled them here because when read together – they are everything that divorce is (or can be). One thing is for sure – they are 100% relatable.
The Mindful Client
“Today I am going to stop making it about her, and start making it about me.”
The Divorce Curious Client
“Yes I am afraid. Yes I am going to do it anyway.”
The Freshly Dumped Client
“Some days I have trouble telling the difference between, ‘it’s killing me’ and/or ‘it’s making me stronger”
The Chopra Client
me: “How did you make it through such a traumatic divorce without showing the slightest bit of hostility?”
her: “My kids are one-half my ex. I will never risk them fearing half of them is wrong. If I hate their father, they experience me hating a part of them.”
The Practical Client
“Sorry I’m late. I was obsessing over all the things I want to say to you but won’t because I don’t want to spend $100,000 on legal fees.”
The Chill Client
“You just have to take it one “are you fucking kidding me” at a time.”
The Mediation Client
“It turns out, the communication issues we had in marriage, are present in our divorce”
Divorcing a Narcissist
“That period of time when change and hope is just around the corner and you are ready for it – but there’s literally nothing you can do to move things along.”
“The moment my mood stopped shifting based on her actions, I won.”
“You can tell a lot about a person by how they divorce.
The Hopeful Client
me: “How is that you have survived through so much pain?”
her: “I am addicted to silver linings.”
The Clueless Client
her: “You’ll never meet another woman like me.”
him: “First of all, thank god.”
The Bitter Divorcee
him: “Looks like you changed the netflix password after we agreed I’d have access until the divorce is final. What is it?”
The Reflective Client
“It’s amazing how broken I am. Even when I saw it coming.”
The Empowered Client
“Yes I forgave him. No, I don’t want to build a relationship with him.”
“I am finally the independent woman, Destiny’s Child wanted me to be.”
“I am power couple with myself. I love us. We work hard.”
