When you are going through a divorce, it is common to feel like you are all alone. This is especially true if your friends and family haven’t been through it themselves. They may try to understand and console you, but it just isn’t the same. An article in the Huffington Post by James J. Sexton suggests that watching a movie may be the answer. Below are some of the top divorce movies that he suggests you consider watching:
First Wives Club
This is the movie that resonates with a spouse that was left for a younger person. It stars Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton who are all seeking revenge after their divorce. You can gleefully enjoy their strategy and tactics while still taking the high road in your own life.
If you are looking for a creative way to spend more time with your children after your divorce, consider posing as a female nanny like Robin Williams does in this flick. You will get some laughs and enjoy the touching moments in this movie.
Crazy, Stupid, Love
If you need a little escape and tips on how to pick-up women after your divorce, Ryan Gosling can provide you both in this movie.
This is another movie that allows you to entertain the idea of ruining your ex-spouse’s life, while also remembering that most of what occurs in this film are things that would land you in jail for a very long time!
While this is certainly one of those sappy chick flicks that most guys dread watching, it is one that most females really enjoy and that may come in handy at some point.
Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson star in this film that shows how leaving your spouse can be a roller coaster ride. This movie is based on Nora Ephron’s novel and allegedly her personal life.
If you are divorced and considering dating again, this sweet film may help you feel like you’re not alone with everything you are feeling.
Sexton is pretty sure there are many other movies about the ups and downs of divorce that are worthy of being on this list, but the point is that you are not alone in what you are going through. And, when you feel that you are, just grab some popcorn, a good movie, and allow yourself to relax and enjoy the next two hours!
