Splitting up from your relationship, marriage and family is traumatic.

There are many questions, decisions and uncertainty.

How many of you have thought:

What do I do? How do I say it out loud? What will this mean now and in the future? How do I transition my children to a different family structure? How do I tell my family and friends? Do I need to move from the family house? How will I pay for life? Can I buy a home on my own? How am I going to save for my future? How do I untangle my life from my ex-partner?

Maybe you’ve heard you family member or friend say these things to you. Maybe you’ve said these things to yourself.

Whether you are thinking this way or someone you know is, it’s time to talk about it.

Together, we are going to have a big conversation about how to prepare to split up and what you need to know before, during and after this life event. This life-altering situation is made up of many considerations and decisions, not one. Each one brings with it a ride of different emotions and realities.

We’re gonna hear from experts who, each and everyday, help people move through this mah-jor milestone.

It happens. Let’s talk about what a successful future looks like after splitting.

October 29.

Bring a grown ass woman. Support a grown ass woman.

There will be no pictures and no cameras allowed into this sesh. Just us grown ass women.
