Start.LuckyDivorce.com provides a way for you to help a friend that is going through a divorce. Whether your friend is about to get divorced, in the process of getting divorced, or recently divorced, it’s a hard time. Most guys say it takes at least two years to restart their lives after getting divorced. The legal stuff is just terrible, but it’s not just that, it’s figuring out how to handle the basic areas of life in a totally new situation. A guy getting divorced often doesn’t know where he’s going to live. Once he has a space, it’s empty and he doesn’t know how to furnish it. He often doesn’t know how to cook, or even if he does there’s no pots, no pans, no appliances, nothing to cook with. His family situation is completely up in the air. He can barely keep himself in any reasonable shape. And dating? What a disaster.
No. LuckyDivorce was written by men, with the idea that men usually aren’t any good at helping each other through difficult emotional times. So the articles are mostly written from a male perspective, and the idea of helping through a website seemed to be the kind of thing that a guy would do. But women can use the site just as well, and might find some of the articles informative, or at least entertaining. We’d be happy to develop more stuff specifically for women if there’s interest.
You can be there for him. A call, a note, just let him know you support him in any way you can. This site gives you one specific way to help, by chipping in some money to help with the expense of starting a new life, and sharing this effort with his other friends. It’s sort of like “crowdfunding” for divorce. You can use the site to say a few nice words about your friend, and send some money to help. Divorce is one of the most expensive life events that people regularly endure. People spend way more on divorces than on weddings! It’s not even about the lawyers and accountants - a guy moving out of the house has to buy new furniture, new kitchen equipment, new clothes and toys for the kids if he has them, probably a new wardrobe to start dating again ... basically a whole new life. If you gave your friend anything for his wedding, think about the fact that this event is going to be far more expensive for him than that one day.

WePay charges 2.9% plus 30 cents to process transactions, which is a typical rate for the payments industry. This charge is added to your donation amount at payment.
