For Immediate Release
With the change of the seasons come the time of year most dreaded by newly separated and divorced people: the holiday season. Divorce Magazine’s editors recommend that people in transition should make plans well in advance of the major calendar events to avoid falling victim to the “Holiday Blues”. Family-centered celebrations such as Thanksgiving, Passover, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve can underline how much a divorced person’s life has changed – increasing feelings of sadness and loss. In this issue, “Happier Holidays during and after Divorce” offers tips and guidance to help readers create strategies to cope with – and even enjoy – the festivities.
Most people think of divorce as a single event: you get divorced, and it’s over. “The truth is there are really four divorces happening all at the same time, and over a period of time,” says author and lawyer M. Marcy Jones. “Everyone goes through each of these divorces differently and over different periods of time.” In the cover story – “Handling your Four Divorces” – Jones discusses the legal, financial, social, and emotional impacts of divorce, explaining how each one might affect you.
Divorce is an emotional time for all parties, and feelings of anger or grief can prompt you to say or do things that would otherwise be completely out of character. Acting in a way that appears irresponsible, inappropriate, or antagonistic can have a negative impact on your case, leaving you with both less money and less time with your kids. In “Managing your Reputation during Divorce”, author Christine Pesoli offers advice on how to protect or polish your good name. Tips include using social media with extreme caution as well as making conscious choices to be “better and smarter than your anger would have you be. Use your anger to fortify, rather than weaken, your resolve to avoid making mistakes that will benefit your ex,” Pesoli says.
Divorce affects every part of your life: from finances to physical and emotional health to children and parenting to your home. Every issue of Divorce Magazine contains articles to help you cope with all the challenges you’re facing right now, to move you from merely surviving to actually thriving post-divorce. Offered in regional editions, the fall 2014 Divorce Magazine features advice from local divorce professionals regarding legal, financial, co-parenting, children’s, and practical divorce-related issues, as well as a listing of the best online and professional resources available to divorcing individuals.
