Laura Wasser’s podcast is aptly titled “Divorce Sucks!” because, well, it does! But while divorce itself might suck, divorced parents don’t have to. As the daughter of divorced parents myself, I speak from experience. My mom and dad separated in the early 80s during the rise of America’s divorce rate. A time when more than half of my friends’ parents were also divorcing. Some of my now adult friends are still scarred from the experience, but it wasn’t as hard on me because of how my parents handled themselves.
