Since I started Divorce Support Group, many more women than men have contacted me either for individual counseling and support or to join a support group, that is, until now. Now I have as many men as women so that the groups are more balanced in terms of numbers. It is really useful to hear the other side of things. As a husband who has perhaps been left, it is useful to hear from a woman in the group who has done the leaving and vice versa. It is so much easier to hear things from people who have come together solely to share experiences than from well intentioned friends, who may have their own agendas. I don’t know why more men are now seeking help and are happy to talk about their loss, but it is good both for them of course, but also for women who can hear now the male perspective.
