Divorced Girl Smiling

Welcome, Beautiful Girl!

Divorced Girl Smiling is an honest, non-sugar-coated, helpful place for women and men who are thinking of separating, going through a divorce, or living life and dating after divorce, many as single parents.

Feel free to browse the site for articles and blog posts that offer advice, support and inspiration from me, along with top-notch contributors. You might also find yourself giggling, laughing and feeling entertained and uplifted while reading some of the articles.

Additionally, Divorced Girl Smiling is a great place to find resources for business and professionals you might need during and after your divorce. These include attorneys, jewelry buyers, financial advisors, divorce coaches, therapists and more!

Divorced Girl Smiling is safe and anonymous. We hope it provides you with the answers to some of your questions and concerns, and that it helps you solve your problems, feel less alone, cope with your issues and get motivated to live your best and authentic life.

Love, Jackie Pilossoph,
