More often than not, when a notable company’s senior executive or major shareholder goes through the divorce process in court, the details of their case and eventual outcome will be splashed across the news as fodder for commentators discussing what the marriage’s demise may mean for the company.
There can be a huge array of emotions that don’t come in to play in the same way in other life transitions—hurt, fear, shame, embarrassment, pride ... no one gets married thinking they will get divorced so there is a huge personal battle and myriad of emotions associated with the breakdown of that relationship. You will find yourself being unraveled emotionally and with huge time and financial pressure placed on you that you did not anticipate. It is impossible for anyone, however strong, informed or organized they are, to move through the process of divorce without being affected by it, on both an emotional and practical level.
The main thing that is unique about life crises is that it’s something that you have not been through before, so say you’re getting a divorce, you’ve probably not been through a divorce before so in order to try to tackle that process by yourself it’s going to be much more time consuming every step of the way rather than bringing in somebody like Apiary to help you.
