Life after divorce with Jill Biden and Kelly Clarkson

On Behalf of | Mar 1, 2021 | high asset divorce |

For those thinking of divorce, a primary concern is likely what life looks like after divorce. The fear of never finding love again or never getting over the heartbreak can be a terrible feeling. It is something that many divorcees struggle with, even celebrities like, First Lady, Jill Biden, and three-time Grammy-winning singer, Kelly Clarkson. This is why the two discussed life post-divorce recently.

Is Kelly Clarkson divorced?

Not yet, but unless one has been actively avoiding celebrity news for the past year, our readers are probably familiar with Kelly Clarkson’s ongoing divorce from her husband of seven years, Brandon Blackstock. The initial filing was in June 2020, and Ms. Clarkson cited irreconcilable differences, but as many readers know, it has been an epic battle between the two sides, including their families.

When did Jill Biden get divorced?

Decades ago. While Ms. Clarkson’s divorce has been all over the news for nearly a year, the first lady’s divorce was finalized in 1975. She divorced her then husband of five years, Bill Stevenson. While the two did not get into great detail about that divorce, the first lady emphasized the importance of that decision to divorce.

What is the first lady’s advice?

Succinctly, “can take one day at a time, and things will get better,” The first lady repeatedly emphasized that thing will get better tomorrow. She highlighted that if she had not gotten divorced, she would have never met the president and never built their life together.

What can we learn?

It gets better. While the pain of divorce, like any loss, feels like it will last forever, it will not. As time passes, that pain will be felt less and less. And, without experiencing that pain, we cannot start our new lives. Birmingham, Michigan, residents thinking of a divorce, wanting out of a failed marriage, should contact an attorney.
