I'm a divorced 33 year old woman who is passionate about sharing my experiences and insights about what I term Mini Marriages. I define a mini marriage as a short term marriage that ends before the couple has children. I was married at the age of 25 and divorced 3.5 years later at 28. The only information I found pertaining to my situation was in Pamela Paul's book, "The Starter Marriage". I refused to accept that young people were getting divorced because of laziness, lack of commitment, and an instant gratification society. I decided to share my story as a way to reach out to the million plus women going through a divorce each year. My goal is to empower women to use their divorces as a catalyst to create the life they truly desire.
It's been 5 years since my divorce and I'm happier with my life than I ever thought possible. Divorce was a traumatic, painful event for me to go through but it also taught me that I'm stronger than I ever imagined and that I should never be willing to settle. After getting divorced, the one thing that I knew for sure was that I wanted was to be a mother. I didn't care how it happened, I just cared that it happened. I'm now a very happy single mom and have 1 year old twin girls. That adventure has inspired me to be more aware of my soul's desires and to embrace them with my whole being.
