The Successful Divorce
Is there any such thing as a successful divorce? The expression itself is a bit incongruous. But I think its possible. While the notion of divorce inherently suggests failure, at the point that a couple decides to dissolve their marriage, they can achieve a successful divorce by treating each other respectfully and staying focused on their children's need for security and sanity. Even if there are hard feelings or they don't agree on everything, people need to keep looking forward. Couples, while decoupling, need to leave themselves in a place that will allow them to someday dance at their children's wedding. That is a successful divorce.
