Huffington Post Launches a "Divorce" Section

Huffington post divorce and children
Stories for life after marriage

The Huffington Post has reported that it is developing a “divorce vertical,” dedicated to the topic of life after marriage. The premise, as the founding editor Nora Ephron puts it, “is that marriage is for some time but divorce is forever.”

“If you want to know about planning a wedding or things like that, there are so many places for people to go, but there isn’t one go-to place around divorce,” says Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington.

The section will be dedicated to topics like dating and raising children after divorce. And given that half of U.S. marriages doesn’t last, it makes sense that articles and input from contributors on the subject would be helpful and popular.

Huffington says part of her inspiration for the section was the feedback she got after writing a blog post on vacationing with her ex-husband.

In the story, she talked about co-parenting after divorce and focusing on what’s best for the kids, which in this case was taking a family vacation with just that — the whole family. The kids really benefited from seeing mom and dad getting along and being part of the same family trip.

I’ve had many similar experiences — my parents are divorced but pretty good friends. Even if they didn’t always have rosy feelings about each other, they worked at it and now, yes, they even take trips together to see us. Recently, they came for the weekend to take care of my son while my husband and I were away.

It’s a reality for many families and no doubt there’s a lot to say. I think the Huffington section is a great idea. What do you think?
