Letter: Tell Me One Thing To Do After Splitting Up

Letters from Readers

Dear Susan,

My husband and I just split up. If there is one thing you could advise me to do what would it be?



Hi Velvet,

That’s a huge question.  There is not one single thing that I could suggest since there are so many.  Also, each case is different and there are many different factors involved such as children, co-owned properties, to name a few.  That said, I think the one thing that I would suggest – across the board – is to not act in a vindictive manner.  It does not matter how upset or angry you may become in any given situation, you should try and maintain your cool as much as possible. Maintaining a calm decorum will always bode you well.
