"It helped us realize that divorce doesn’t have to be hurtful or shameful"

My wife of 28 years introduced me to Conscious Uncoupling when we were just first considering divorce.
We did it together though independently of each other. It helped us realize that divorce doesn’t have to be hurtful or shameful. It offered us a peaceful, kind and honorable way to end our relationship. 
Our son is on the Autism spectrum so we have to be very mindful of his care and the program helped us to listen to and hear each other. We’re now calmer and co-parenting together in a way we were unable to in the past. Sometimes, we can even laugh together.
