Will Your Ex Continue to be your Friend?
According to a November 30, 2015 article in the New York Post, new Facebook tools are easing soured romances. A new feature has been added to Facebook that allows users to take a break from an ex without the finality of “unfriending” them.
Facebook now allows you to block posts and pictures of an ex, without your ex knowing about it. According to Facebook product manager, Kelly Winters: “We hope these tools will help people end relationships on Facebook with greater ease, comfort and sense of control.”
Ms. Winders stated that Facebook introduced these new “tools” after users asked for more delicate ways to handle break ups.
Unfortunately with a traditional divorce, you have to hire two attorneys and Moncler outlet battle in a courtroom. You are declaring to the world (and your children) that you want to “unfriend” your spouse in the very public way.
Many couples have told us that what they most appreciate about mediation is that it’s a process that gives them the tools – like the new tools of Facebook – to divorce with greater ease, a sense of control and an ability to handle their break up in a more delicate way, without “unfriending” their spouse in a courtroom.
Divorce mediation allows you both, in a private setting, to work out the details of the divorce yourselves, control the process, and never fight in public as adversaries. And when all is said and done, you may even wind up with your ex as a friend!
