“The Road to Remarriage: How After a Brutal Divorce, Michelle Dempsey Still Wanted to Get Married Again” on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast #168
In this episode Rebecca Zung, Esq. and Susan Guthrie, Esq. talk with Michelle Dempsey, best known for her irreverent and humorous posts on Instagram (@themichelledempsey) and in articles written for Forbes, Scary Mommy, Huffpost and more, about her personal journey beyond a brutal divorce to find the strength and optimism to remarry again!
"NEVER AGAIN! I WILL NEVER GET MARRIED AGAIN!"
As divorce attorneys, Rebecca and Susan have heard this phrase from their clients so many times that they really do wish they had a dollar for every time! The fact is though, they also both know, both having been divorced and remarried themselves, that many people put aside the difficult experience of that divorce to find love and marriage again. Statistics seem to say that those second and third marriages will fail at an even higher rate than the 50% that is so often cited for first marriages, but Michelle Dempsey put a particularly brutal divorce behind her and jumped head first into a new marriage and life and couldn't be happier! Michelle is a newlywed and shares her difficult past experiences with listeners but also shares her optimism and hope for the future and why she believes in love again. As Rebecca and Susan often say, "Divorce is not the end, it is truly the beginning of your wonderful new life" and Michelle and her story will help you to believe again too!
