    There’s a lot of good and a lot of truth in what you say in this article. Just curious though, as to what your criteria would be for having “made it through” divorce?

    • Depends. It could mean once the decree is in hand. It could be the day you realize the worst is behind you. It could be the moment that the divorce no longer defines you or holds you back. It’s what “over” means to you and that may change as time goes on.

    Yes, agreed, it changes with time, and as you suggest, varies from person to person. Just thought you might have some criteria in mind on which you based the article. If not, that might be a thought for a future article (if not already covered elsewhere on site). 🙂
