How to keep your friends after your divorce

Most people consider how they may divide their homes, belongings and even their children when their marriage falls apart, but few consider the impact it will have on their mutual friendships.

Mutual friends often try to stay neutral when a couple goes through a divorce, which can be difficult when they are being used by both the husband and wife to emotionally offload.

With this in mind, couples who are splitting should try to avoid involving mutual friends in the break-up. If they succeed, there is a much better chance that both parties will be able to remain friends.

It is important to respect the fact that mutual friends will not want to listen to complaints about a husband or wife’s behaviour and creating this additional drama can be destructive.

For divorcing husbands and wives to truly remain friends with people who want to continue to see them both, they will have to try to find a way to divorce with as little animosity as possible. Only then is a mutual friendship likely to stand the test of time after a marriage breaks down.
