What happens when worst-case-scenarios come true? Jackie Pilossoph offers real talk about some of the worst divorce moments ever, plus real-world advice about how to work your way through, perhaps even with grace and a smile on your face. 

Jackie found herself divorcing when her kids were just 3 and 5 years old. Despite multiple attempts to solve the issues that divided her and her husband, things simply didn’t work out. When even couples’ therapy failed, Jackie and her ex-husband realized that divorce was the best option. 

Nobody expects their marriage to end in divorce. For most people, it’s as traumatic and heartbreaking as it was for Jackie. As she navigated the murky waters of her divorce, she felt like she was an island as she was the only person in her circle who had faced the emotional pain of divorce. Having no one to talk to made matter worse and when it was all over, Jackie realized that she didn’t want others to experience divorce in the same lonely space she did. That’s when she decided to create her blog, Divorced Girl Smiling.
