Trigger Warning: Divorce, Rape, Miscarriage
Continuing our discussion about marriage from a divorced woman’s point of view, Sherley, Kira, and special guest, Alicia Hawthorne dive deeper. You’re in for a great discussion on red flags, believing the best in our other half, parents and trauma, staying or going different paths, grieving, counseling, happiness and more. We close with the reminder of being grounded in who you are because marriage is not a game and the importance of tapping into our source of peace.
No one gets married and wants to get a divorce. How does one get to that point? Should you only get married once? Why is divorced so shameful? Your vows include the phrase, “till death do us part.” Does that mean forever? In this episode, we discuss all of this plus bittersweet lessons from divorce, rebuilding and preparing for the next relationship, living together before marriage with our guest, Alicia Hawthorne who provides insight and guidance on life after divorce.
