The Washington Post advice column, “Tell Me About It…” is really, really helpful for people who have been divorced. A lot of people might not know that writer Carolyn Hax went through a public, messy divorce from her now ex-husband, Nick Galifianakis, who also works on the advice column with her. This quote from her ex is one of the best I've seen on the topic, “We were a great couple that could maybe be greater apart. The point of the column is not to keep people together; it's for people to be happy. And sometimes being happy means making that kind of adjustment, where maybe you're not together.”
I got through my divorce, and so much more, by compulsively reading and re-reading her columns. So I hope these greatest hits from her column are helpful to someone else.
