Actress Mayim Bialik blogs about the challenges after a divorce

Most people think that life becomes easier after a divorce, but as many people will tell you, this simply isn’t the case. For a lot of people, the changes that occur after a divorce can be jarring to say the least and routines that often required two people suddenly need adaptation. But this can be most difficult for divorced parents who, even years later, can find some challenges overwhelming.

This was the point actress Mayim Bialik, best known for her roles on Blossom and The Big Bang Theory, wanted to get across in a blog post this month when she and her friend talked about the top ten things they wished for as divorced women. The post was written as a response to another blog post in which a married woman envied her divorced friend because of the freedom she thought she had. Using their own personal stories of divorce as examples, Bialik and her friend wanted to show that divorce does not necessarily make things easier and is a decision that should not be taken lightly.

The biggest thing the two women brought up time and time again were how different things become after a divorce.  Even story time can become heart wrenching, explained Bialik, especially when the story is about a happy, two parent family.  But as both women stress, being a single parent is not something to be pitied or even envied.  Every situation is different and oftentimes people can get the wrong impression about divorce because they do not know the full story.  But by hearing about other people’s experiences you might get a fuller picture of divorce and what life is really like afterwards.
