Lessons From the Brangelina Divorce
Like the rest of America, you may have been keeping a close eye on the Brangelina divorce. Here’s what we can all learn from this unfortunate scenario.
When faced with divorce, especially when child custody is involved, it can seem impossible to put emotions aside and “play nice.” However, if you are able to do so and be reasonable in your negotiations, you will almost certainly save yourself much financial and emotional stress.
Once again in the headlines, we can learn some lessons from the Brangelina divorce: You may have heard that Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt have reached an agreement on at least one issue related to their divorce. In a joint statement released to the Associated Press they described a desire to “act as a unified front to effectuate recovery and reunification.”
This is a marked change from their attitudes earlier in the litigation, where authorities were called to investigate allegations of abuse and it seemed that there was no hope of an amicable, civil resolution between the parties with regards to the custody of their six children. Assuming they can continue to work together in a productive way and maintain a level of civility, they will be able to save money on legal fees. Perhaps more importantly, they will be saving themselves and their children from much unnecessary stress and heartache.
