There’s a lot to process and work through, with many left feeling hopeless and victimized years later.

And, all it takes it to change your perspective and make a choice.

A Millennial's Perspective On Marriage & Divorce with TV Personality Aaron Deane
There are harrowing statistics that reflect the current culture of divorce in America and its negative effects on the population. For perspective, 87% of children involved in school shootings come from child custody battles. In a marriage where both spouses are products of divorce, their chances of the marriage ending in divorce are 200% greater than the general population. Divorce culture is toxic and chaotic and has profound consequences on the children involved—consequences that are likely to impact them for the rest of their lives.
In this episode of Divorce, Healthy! WNCT news anchor and TV personality Aaron Deane joins attorney and author Ashley-Nicole Russell, of ANR Law to discuss his experiences as a child of divorce, offering a millennial’s perspective. Aaron highlights the effect of a custody ruling that afforded one parent primary custody of the children. Such court designations drive secondary parents to internalize a diminished sense of family responsibility– leading to increased rates of absentee parents.

This inspiring woman is truly dedicated to changing Divorce in this country. She is the one person standing up to the corruption of family court and the divorce attorneys that are spending the retirement accounts of their clients and damaging their children in the mix. It baffles me that people hire attorneys with no integrity. These children deserve better and thank goodness Ashely-Nicole is a warrior for children of divorce. Absolutely inspiring!
And I mean brilliant as in Ashley-Nicole Russell is a shining star, a beacon of light in the darkness. Her approach to possibly THE most tumultuous time in a persons life is to inject it with calm and perspective- Think of a drowning person who won’t relax killing her rescuer as well as herself- focus on the life you have after this trauma and accept help, rest in it . It will sound odd to say that I, a happily married woman found great wisdom for myself in listening to this podcast about divorce - Ashley Nicole’s message can apply to us all. It is a message of positivity and living with intention and so there is much to gain for all. I chose to listen because of someone close to me considering divorce. I wondered if I could recommend it to her. Instead I found I would recommend it to anyone. We have all been touched in some way by divorce and so her message- her MISSION is truly for us all.
ANR offers a great perspective in her book, The Cure for Divorce Culture, and this carries over to the Divorce, Healthy! podcast.
