Real Mediation Stories from Real People

Facing your own divorce isn’t easy—trust me, I know first-hand how tough it can be. I know that you’re probably facing some difficult decisions, some of which could impact your life moving forward. I know it can affect your kids, too.

When you’re in the middle of a divorce, it’s tough to see the funny side of things. Fighting over who gets to keep your kid’s favorite blanky becomes a dire matter—one you’re willing to fight tooth and nail over.

Of course, once you’re out of the divorce proceedings, you remember that your child is in college and doesn’t exactly carry that blanket around anymore. 

Most of us who have been through a big divorce have little stories like this: stories of things we never really wanted but cling to now, stories of making bad decisions, and stories of saying some pretty wild things we wouldn’t otherwise say. 

Of course, once I started thinking about that, I had a little idea for a website. 

My Own Mediation Story

When I was in my early thirties, I realized that things just weren’t going to work out between my husband and me. Sure, we had a couple of kids together, but he also had a couple of kids with his mistress. Personally, I wasn’t keen on that. 

So, we took it to divorce court. We started out with a mediator, for the kids’ sake, but it got ugly fast. He wanted more of our property and more time with our kids than I was willing to give up. It didn’t help that I was also a little bit hurt and heartbroken, as you would be. 

Still, I realized a little later that there were a few times I’d gotten so worked up over little things that I made some iffy decisions. A few items of clothing may have gone sailing off the porch, for example, and maybe even a few particularly desirable pieces of furniture may have joined them. Sometimes, my temper gets the better of me. 

A Little Laughter Goes a Long Way

That’s not to say this wasn’t a tough time for me. I was in a difficult emotional state, and that’s tough to deal with. That’s why I’m sharing my own stories and a few submissions to lighten the mood. 

There are a few particular things we all remember from divorce court, and sometimes, it helps to look back (or forward) and laugh at the things we’ve done, or maybe just felt like doing. 

Inspired by other satirical sites, I decided to turn these stories into breaking news. Putting our worries and troubles in a new light can sometimes help us get over these difficult times and to take a closer look at ourselves. 

Sharing Stories on Divorce

If you’ve been through a divorce, you probably already understand the trials, difficulties, and frustration of a divorce. It’s easy to get caught up in the situation, only able to look back at it years after the fact. 

If you’re struggling to look at your case as anything but dire, check out the stories here on my page. I understand just how tough it can be to look at the situation any other way. However, I also came out fine on the other side—and you can, too, with a little humor to lighten your load. 

If you’re struggling to look on the bright side and laugh at yourself now and again, check out the stories we have here for you. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite “news” stories coming from divorcees and their cases.
