How do you gauge any 'alliances' that are formed? How can you remain friends into the future? For many couples they have shared, adult friendships that have been forged throughout the years and which are vital to the emotional and social well-being of that person. Read on to see how you can discuss your divorce with friends and keep them in your life in a meaningful way.
