💰Financial Fridays - My divorce story

June 27, 20242 min read

I don't talk about my divorce much because it's well in the past and there's no need. But I feel compelled to share a few details of my own divorce story with you all.

I got married in September 2015 and got divorced in September 2020. When I moved out, my personal expenses quadrupled. 

I consider myself fortunate that I was able to afford everything I needed during and after the divorce. But not all women may be as fortunate. 

Divorce can have serious financial implications, especially for women who may face unique challenges in the process.

As I went through my own healing process, I realized that I could use my experience to help others. I have been able to encourage many other women (and some men) as they navigate their own divorce journeys. That's why I've decided to hold a webinar in a few weeks to share valuable information and insights.

I understand that divorce is a sensitive topic, so you’ll be able to join the webinar anonymously if you prefer. Whether you've been through it, you're currently going through it, or you're considering it, I invite you to join. Even if you're not personally considering divorce, the information I share can help you support friends or loved ones who may be going through it now or in the future.

Did you know that statistics show that half of all marriages end in divorce? That's why I feel it's crucial to share this information. Divorce can have a significant financial impact, and being informed and prepared can make a difference.

I hope that my webinar can provide valuable insights and support for those who need it.

Remember, you are not alone, and there is support available. Let's empower ourselves and others with knowledge and understanding as we navigate the challenges of divorce.

"Lydia has been great with my account. As a newbie to investment, she has been able to explain stuff to me so easily that it doesn't seem complicated any longer. I also appreciate her monthly updates, it's very helpful to know what my money is up to."

"Having Lydia Andrews as my wealth adviser makes my life much easier! she’s extremely dedicated and always has my best interest at heart. So now, instead of trying to figure out where to invest my money myself, I have Lydia, who periodically presents me with options, answers all my questions and ensures the investment process is as seamless as possible. She’s an invaluable asset to my financial journey!"
