“Divorce Sucks”

Divorce Sucks” is a gathering for men and women going through, contemplating, or crawling out of the trauma and ensuing carnage of divorce. We’ll share tools for survival – all in places where you can self-medicate with food and drink. At least… that’s the idea.

We aren’t some kind of recovery group meeting in a church basement, trying to figure out what the hell we did wrong (nor is this a singles meetup). We’re just normal people who want to get together with others who understand what divorce is like.

Before we (including Imei Hsu and Melanie Farmer) get together in May 2010 for the official inaugural gathering of “Divorce Sucks,” we thought we’d just rub shoulders first and see who you are. We’d like to meet up, just for fun, and hear a little from you in an informal way – just to see what you might be interested in.

Of course, this is currently open to those in the immediate Seattle area for now:

  • When: Tuesday, April 6, 2010 from 7:30pm – 9:00pm. Happy Hour runs all evening to close.
  • Where: O’Asian Kitchen (bar area), 800 5th Avenue Suite Plaza 1, Seattle WA 98104 (there is parking underneath)

If you know someone local who is going through a divorce or thinking about one: please bring them!

Join the Facebook page, get information, meet others, and keep in touch with what we’re doing to help those of us going through a divorce.

  1. Even 15 years after-the-fact, I’d love to join you just to be there to say “yes, it does suck… but life goes on.” However, the commute from NC would also, ummm, suck.

    My condolences to those who do attend (with the exception of “congrats” to the one or two leaving absolutely horrid situations).

  2. I totally agree that Divorce Sucks.

    I went through a painless divorce a few years ago.

    I still have not totally gotten over the mixture of positive and negative feelings.

    I still don’t feel ready for a new relationship.

    My father and step mother joined a group called “We Care,” in the late 1970’s.

    We Care is a group for people who have lost, or may lose a loved one.

    They became “Facilitators” for We Care.

    My father wrote a book about their experience.

    My father and step mother began a romance, and eventually married.

    My parents will celebrate their 30th Anniversary this year.

  3. In 7 hrs I will be in front of a judge trying to explain why my wife of 14yrs cheated on me.  it has been nearly 2 yrs of seperation and finally going to end.  By far the worst time in my life.  I loved her with every once but betrayal will snuff any fire…. We have 3 wonderful boys that I worry about endlessly.  We share custody 50/50. I cant imagine the pain and confusion of living in 2 houses every other week.  Life goes on! They are the victims. I try to do the best I can under the circumstances but they will have ever lasting scars….. yes, divorce sucks!
      But, tommorow is the 1st day of my new life and just another day of being a great father to my boys.  God bless anyone going down this path…. you will need him!
