Brighter Side: About Our Mission

November 9, 2018
About Our Mission

Thank you for checking out Brighter Side! We’re glad you’re here. 

The aim of the blog is to provide hope, inspiration and reassurance for people grappling with changes to their primary romantic relationships.

Whether or not they are or were legally married, this blog supports readers through periods of uncertainty about whether a relationship will continue, as well as the processes of separation, divorce, recoupling and blending families.

We aspire to shift the way people speak about separation and divorce, using positive language that corrects inaccurate assumption that relationship changes equal “broken families.”

Instead, compared to more traditional forums on separation and divorce, this blog models positive outcomes achieved through intentional, cooperative, sensitive and even creative approaches to family life after a relationship ends.
