A divorce can be a long, stressful process for a couple which is why they must have friends and family who are willing to help them. It’s so important for people going through a divorce to have a good support system. If you have a friend or family member starting a divorce process, now is the time to step up and show them you care. Check out some ways you can help to console someone going through a divorce.
Inviting your friend to take part in plans you’ve made is a great way to help them move on. Even if they insist they don’t want to hang out, continue inviting them to let them know you are always there. Soon enough, they will want to get out of the house. Hanging out with friends and family is a great way for someone to take their mind off of a divorce and have fun.
If your friend wants to vent to you about the divorce, be a good listener and let them! However, stay out of their business as much as possible. Try not to ask too many questions as this can be hard to talk about. Divorces are a difficult, private matter and should mostly be kept between the two ex-spouses.
Often when going through a breakup, it is common for spouses to talk badly about each other. If your friend is venting to you about their ex, try your best to give them a positive outlook on things rather than jumping in and trash-talking them. Many people don’t mean what they say about their ex, so if someone else is talking badly about them it can still hurt.
