Divorcing in Your 20s: A Podcast

Divorcing in Your 20s


In this podcast Hannah Greene, a Senior Associate at FLiP is joined by Jo Harrison, in-house therapist at FLiP. Hannah and Jo discuss Monica Heisey’s debut novel ‘Really Good, Actually’ and what it means to get divorced in your 20s.

**SPOILER ALERT – to any listener who has not yet read the book, the plot of the novel is discussed to some extent and the conversation may contain some spoilers.**

Jo and Hannah discuss a range of topics filtering from Monica’s novel, such as but not limited to:

  • How divorcing looks in your 20s from a legal perspective and the common issues which may feature;
  • How therapy can help an individual, no matter what their age, when going through a divorce or separation;
  • The concept of “necessary narcissism”;
  • Communication during the divorce process and after;
  • The legal position on pets during a divorce;
  • What is portrayed in the book which is general to divorce;
  • Lessons learnt from the novel.
