We’re all adults here, right? Sure, we think we can remain friends even if our partnership didn’t work out, but sometimes you cannot stay friends. It’s too hard. It brings up the same issues that made the partnership not work.

Memo to Friends: You can still be friends. The tendency is to avoid the divorcing parties. After all you just don’t want to get involved and you could end up being a witness. While this may be true you have to ask “Are you being a Friend?“
Oftentimes the friends choose a side or stay out all together, however divorce does NOT require this. One of the divorcing parties may seem to “require” this, however.
