“Learning from love and the pain of the disintegration of that love is a valuable use of our time.” These are the words of Judge Michele Lowrance in The Good Karma Divorce. The truth of her statement is obvious; but on the road to divorce court, such common sense advice is an uncommon thing. Sadly, the focus instead usually turns to winning the divorce battle. Each side attacks the other in an effort to get what they want. Friends are forced to choose sides. Communication is handled through lawyers. Assets are divided. Miscommunication abounds. And as satisfying as it might feel in the moment to inflict damage on your former mate, there is clear evidence that – in the long run – emotions like anger and hate are far more harmful to the giver than the receiver.
Fortunately, there is an alternative. It’s eloquently described in The Good Karma Divorce. Read the book and discover why the high road is the best road. It’s never too late to choose a better path!

If you love your children, read The Good Karma Divorce. Children need to know parents can make mistakes and apologize; that divorce does not imply two parents distracted by tearing down both pillars of their life support; that love’s heaven does not have to become divorce’s hell. I repeat: If you love your children, read The Good Karma Divorce.”
