    Hi Everyone,

    I’m 35 and I’ve been divorced from my ex husband since 2018 and we have a son together whos almost 9 years old.

    Coming from a Sikh/Punjabi background, divorce is quite widely ‘frowned upon’ and not something that everyone fully accepts. I’m quite lucky that my family are not very traditional and don’t adopt these now ancient values with regards to divorce but it would be good to speak to somebody who is going through or may have gone through the same thing.

    I’m one of the only divorced single parents in our family/extended family and although I get alot of support from my parents and siblings, I feel like no one really understands what I’ve been through or what I’m going through raising my son.

    Hi, new to this forum.
    Separated after almost 20 years of marriage, and getting a lot of support from my family.

    I am also a Hindu and having been married to a total narcissist it is hard to continue to pick up the pieces as he is still trying to control and coerce.

    Happy to provide an ear or support.
