The above billboard advertisement by a Choicago area law firm specializing in divorce was met with obvious outrage.
But as a divorced person – I have to remind everyone
NO ONE TAKES THIS STUFF LIGHTLY.
I have never even bought a pair of jeans based on a billboard. Why would I leave my marriage and break up my family based on one?
I stayed too long for the two people I love most (#3) and I think for no other reason ( except a side dish of duty maybe, confusion maybe and a dash of stiff upper lip) and yet they have said, in spite of the pain and loss, life is now better.
One wonders how to know the difference between ups and downs and real deal breakers.
Give all of us more credit for knowing the difference, please.
what do you think? Do you find the billboard offensive or are we all self directed grown ups ?
