What can we learn from serial celebrity break-ups, billionaire bust-ups, misbehaving spouses, pants-on challenged politicos and the ever-shifting landscape of divorce law? Question is, "What CAN'T we learn"? With latte in hand and clicky finger at the ready, dive in for the best in divorce news, views, gossip, and buzz – assembled below for your reading pleasure.

It's not exactly First Wives World, but a Web site for divorcees in India is yet another indication of how much attitudes about divorce have changed in that vast country.

We've written recently about how divorce is on the rise in India as the country's traditional social mores are receding. Now, there's a new site called SecondShaadi.com, geared toward helping India's divorcees find romance again. "Shaadi," by the way, is the Hindi word for marriage.

While attitudes are changing, one man quoted in a Reuters report on SecondShaadi says that there's still a stigma attached to divorce in India. No doubt, divorcees there are happy to have a helping hand, like a dating site created especially for them. Online for just two months, the site's registered 6,000 people.

We feel a little bit of kinship with SecondShaadi. Our goal here at FWW is to offer you a place to share your thoughts, feelings and frustrations about your post-divorce life, but also your hopes for creating a new life. We are here for you to share with one another.

We all know it's easy to feel like nobody else knows what you're going through after your marriage splits up. But, of course, there's a whole community of us who know all about it. And it seems like SecondShaadi might gain a lot of traction as a place for divorced women in India to communicate with one another about their shared experience.

    Hi,



    I chanced upon your article on divorcees in India and read it with a lot of interest. I am an Indian divorcee. It is heartening to see that the social stigma attached to divorce in this country is slowly fading - at least in the urban areas. My life now is not very different from what it was as a single woman. In fact, I think my dating life just got better simply because I am much more confident and clear as to what I am looking for in a potential mate!
