How Do I Tell People I Am Getting Divorced?

When you are getting married, you want to shout it from the rooftops. It comes as no surprise getting divorced inspires quite an opposite reaction. When you are in the midst of a divorce, you may not yet be ready to broadcast the news to the world. However, it is inevitable everyone in your life will eventually find out whether it’s from you or someone else. You will eventually end up forced to tell a number of people, such as your parents, children, colleagues, acquaintances, and friends. It may seem daunting beyond belief, but there are varying approaches to tackling the awkward or painful conversations ahead.

Here are some tips on how to tell people you are getting a divorce:

  • Be open and honest with your inner circle. It may even provide you emotional relief.
  • No matter how private you are, people will ask for details. In these instances, it is best to deliver a premeditated response to cover the basics: “Yes, we are getting a divorce. It’s for the best. Thank you for your concern.”
  • You can notify people through social media if this is the primary way you keep in touch with friends and family, but don’t share details.
  • If you do not feel comfortable delivering the news, you can ask someone you trust to tell people for you. You can request people to respect your privacy until you are ready to talk about it.
