Happy Sunday, Escapees. Today I’m over at Vishnu’s blog answering some burning divorce questions. I think you will find this an interesting interview and one worth sharing with loved ones who may be thinking about divorce right now. Here’s a snippet;
What led you to leave your marriage?

I encourage you to click over to Vishnu’s site for a read of the full interview. In addition, if you haven’t had a visit to Vishnu’s site, you’re in for a treat. He’s all about treating yourself with love and respect following a break up or divorce. I always find Vishnu’s posts and writings uplifting and just what we need to get through a tough, emotional time.
Thanks again to Vishnu for hosting me. Thanks, to you my dear readers for taking an interest and sharing.
