Yesterday we were on BBC Radio 5 Live talking about how to deal with divorce, both practically and emotionally speaking.
Our founder and Relationship Expert, Sarah Louise Ryan, spoke about how as a couple in a long-term relationship, specifically in a marriage and especially if you met at a young age, you either work together and grow together or it may be the case that you subconsciously grow apart.
We talked with 5 Live about prenups, post-nups, remaing friends after divorce and most importantly how to navigate this really important shift from significant other to being a solo.
Here's a rundown of some of the things discussed.

- practising a lot of self-care. It's not selfish. It's essential
