How do you handle public scrutiny in the aftermath of divorce?

Cupid’s Advice:

A divorce is difficult even without public attention.  Here are a few ways to deal with the scrutiny:

1. Talk to your friends: By being open with your friends throughout the divorce process, you will keep their curiosity at bay.  Your friends can also serve as a great support system, so don’t be afraid to open up.

2. Minimize drama: Make your divorce as amicable as possible.  A dramatic divorce will only attract more attention from outsiders.  Staying friendly and honest will make the split much easier to handle.

3. Ask for privacy: If you can’t minimize public scrutiny, there’s no shame in asking for a little privacy.  Your friends and family will realize that this is a difficult time for you, and they will give you space if you ask for it.
