Memo for Friends of Divorcing Couples; You Can Still be Friends

I think it was a Country music song that said in Divorce you not only lose a spouse, but also half of your friends.

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.

If you are a close friend of a person going through a divorce or separation they need an outlet to vent to or take their minds off of things.  If you are a party to a divorce or separation requiring your friends to divorce your spouse is usually not the right answer.
