DivorcedNotBroken.com is a website primarily for men. Women are welcome and encouraged to visit and read the insights within, but for the most part this site is dedicated to men learning to grow as people, parents and potential partners, after a divorce.
It’s easy to find a thousand different websites and online communities dedicated to women who are contemplating divorce, separated, filing for it, going through it, still going through it, have gone through it, going through it again, you get the idea.
But try finding anything out there where men can share and discuss what they go through before, during and especially after a divorce. There simply isn’t anything. No forums, chat rooms, blogs, radio shows, nothing. Until now.
The name Divorced, not broken came about when after seeing a pattern of behavior among women that I had seen when I had finally gotten back into the dating scene. They kept saying the same thing.
“You’re such a great guy, you have so much going for you, there must be something wrong with you… what is it?”
They just assumed that since I had been through a divorce, it must have been something wrong with me. They were constantly looking for what was wrong with me. It made me reflect a great deal on my relationship, my divorce and my life. I realized that there wasn’t anything wrong with me. I’m Divorced, not broken.
Divorces happen. For myriad reasons and often times neither, or both parties are to blame. It’s human nature, more common in fact than marriages that stay together until death do they part. There is no shame in it. But often times there is a stigma attached and we, as men, have to deal with that.
This site will help you with that. We have a wide range of topics covered, from personal growth and fitness, to relationship advice and dating tips. There are How-To’s and videos on simple tasks around the house, to words of encouragement to help you get through the darker days.
And we want to hear from you as well. Comment on our posts. Share your story with us. Get feedback from peers.
