The unspeakable final frontier
“Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” ~ Alfred Lord Tennyson
Divorce is such a difficult subject that I have known people who simply refer to the ‘D’ word, even as they go through a divorce. The separation, the smashed dreams, the public failure, and worst of all for those with children, the children. Not only not ‘happy forever after’, but publicly too after your wedding or being together all the hopes, ideals and wishes are put on the compost pile of life, ready to be recycled into new relationships, bitternesses, fears or ‘never again’.
So is it possible that divorce or separation could be a new beginning and what could be some of the ground rules for that. Could there just, oh so possibly, be some learning for us in what our ex partner accused us of? Is it possible that we can differentiate between things we could improve on, parts where we did our best and then that sense of simply drifting apart despite our best intents.
This will be an evening with no set answers, just a willingness to explore what’s usually a taboo subject.
