The Wideners of Philadelphia were not out to get each other. So they tell us in an April 19, 2019 online article by Erin Arvedlund in the the Inquirer, They’re divorcing. They’re still good friends. How did the Weidners do it?
Stephanie Widener, a software engineer stated:
We heard about it and realized it was a perfect fit for us. It’s such an amenable divorce. There were no disputes we couldn’t talk over. When we heard what this type of law was, we decided it was a good fit. . . . It took out some of the headaches, the normal things you hear about divorces.
What would the Weidners want people to know about their collaborative divorce?
There’s a stigma around divorce that it’s an angry, long, expensive ordeal. And as long as you’re willing to be honest, and open to communication and compromise this is a wonderful way to have a good, short, and relatively cheap experience.
