Divorce is a difficult situation that affects young women in many ways. There is no celebration, even if the woman is thankful the marriage is ended. If children are involved, mothers are often heartbroken that the family won’t remain intact. The difference between all the help and support involved in a wedding and the complete isolation of divorce is a very stark realization for some women. Some suggestions for ways friends can help in a divorce include a photo-shoot for the newly single woman and setting up a registry to give away or sell old items from the wedding.
