Episode 098: Thoughts from Mom-nonymous
Episode 098: Moving on After Divorce with special guest David J. Glass, JD, PhD
J D Glass Family Law Attorney and Author of a Best Selling Book “Moving On” was an especially informative guest this week.
Not only is David an attorney, but he's also has a degree in Psychology. He
worked as a therapist, but decided that law better suited him.
He and his first met while in law school. They married, had two daughters, and lived in Philadelphia. A few years later they moved to California which offered big promises. His wife went into Real Estate and David practiced family law. They drifted apart and both agreed it was time to move on. The two of them worked out custody issues for their girls and had an amicable divorce.
Being single again meant getting back into a social network with friends in his free time.
Prior to divorce, David and his wife went to couples therapy and learned how to work things out in a new way. It was a smart thing to do. They brainstormed solutions instead of knocking heads over one. Loved your idea of holding the egg and how to agree who has the bigger issue right now and deal with that one first.
Your very methodical thinking does make sense. It's also important to work out financials prior to marriage.
David went back to therapy after divorce to work on himself. Loved this episode! It offered a much different approach and different ideas.
