When guys get married, their identity tends to commingle with that of their spouse. That makes coming to grips with who you are as an individual especially challenging in the wake of divorce.
While you were married, you and your wife shared a house, family, friends, possibly a church, probably some common interests and activities, and a number of other things. Now that you’re divorced, you must rediscover what makes you you.
Dr. Deborah Hecker is a divorce and relationship counselor and author of the book, “Who Am I Without My Partner: Post-Divorce Healing and Rediscovering Your Self.” She joins DadsDivorce to discuss what guys need to do after divorce to rediscover their identity and start the next chapter of their lives.
