Today is International Friendship Day, and it brings to mind a well-worn truth: Good friends are always there for each other, through the good times and the bad. That’s the concept behind My Divorcing Friend, a new website designed to help you support your friend through what might just be the toughest time of their life.
When separation or divorce strikes some appear in denial, some in shock, while some climb on board an emotional rollercoaster and others prepare for war. Many people go through all four stages in the course of their divorce -- so with all these emotions, what can you do to help? It’s hard to be the shoulder to cry on, and harder still to know what to say when someone’s marriage hits the rocks. Help is at hand though, in the form of Fifi Sasan, legal adviser to My Divorcing Friend. A law girl with her finger firmly on the pulse of high-profile break ups, Fifi blends sensible advice with incisive commentary, guiding you and your friend through divorce’s dramas. You can follow Fifi Sasan's blog, The Secret Diary of a Law girl, here.
My Divorcing Friend launches officially on 30 August, with a glittering party at Glasgow’s most exclusive members’ club, 29, whose chief mixologist has created a brand new cocktail inspired by the site. This delicious concoction might be just the tipple to drown your divorcing friend’s sorrows, but there’ll be no tears on this evening – just networking, cocktails and, most importantly of all, a celebration of friendship.
