Episode 14 of The F Words: Difficult conversations with Dr Leandra Brady-Walker is #Fallingout: Breaking up is hard to do: the emotional cost of divorce with Clarissa Rayward.

I am a child of divorce, so I guess it's natural that I don't think much about divorce. It's something I see as just a part of life. But While I was scrolling through Facebook one day, I realised how many people I went to high school with, people in their early 30's, married for less that 10 years, are already part of the staggering 48, 517 divorces every year. In the year 2015, almost 50% of all marriages ended up in divorce.

But why?

So I thought I would explore the idea of divorce with The Happy Family Lawyer, Clarrisa Rayward.
