Indulge the Joy – it’s the Best Therapy

Indulge the Joy – it’s the Best Therapy

When we decide to get divorced, we often go to extremes to secure the best possible advice and counselling money can buy and then we take comfort in the perception that we are acting in the best interest of all involved.
