How to handle prying questions about your divorce

When news of your impending divorce gets around to your friends and family members, it is only a matter of time till the prying questions come about. Handling the constant inquisitions is one of the difficult parts of going through a divorce, since many people may not understand boundaries in their efforts to be supportive.

Nevertheless, having a leg up in preparing for the questions can be a benefit. With that, this post will highlight some helpful ways to deal with them.

Do you need anything? - You may feel guilty about accepting help, but as we said before, people mean well. So accept help (financial and otherwise) to the extent that you feel comfortable. After that, feel free to say no additional help.

What happened? You seemed happy. - Do not feel compelled to give a blow by blow account about the demise of your marriage. Just thank them for seeing you happy and say that life changes and people change as well.

Do you ever think you will get married again? - Who knows what life will bring in the future; so don't feel bad about saying that you don't know whether you will tie the knot again.

Was I right about him (or her) cheating on you? - At this point, it doesn't matter who was at fault or if someone cheated. Feel free to decline to answer this one.

What are you going to do now? - If you don't know, it's okay to say so. Don't feel compelled to give a direct answer or feel guilty about not knowing what you want in the meantime.
