The divorce statistics are staggering.
Almost 50% of first marriages, 67% of second marriages, and 73% of third marriages are ending in divorce. “It’s time we do it better,” Marcy asserts. “I want to help keep people out of what I call the ‘legal vortex’ and help put them back in the driver’s seat, rather than with lawyers or in the legal system, so they can go through the process more ‘gracefully’ in a way that preserves their relationships. It’s still a challenging time, but it doesn’t have to be the nightmare it turns into for so many people. Especially if children are involved, it’s important that mom and dad still be able to talk to each other and get along.”
