Recently, while speaking to a neighbor the topic of divorce came up and I mentioned I was divorced. She seemed shocked. Her: Well that changes everything!  Me: How so? Her: I thought you were a single Mom! Being a divorced Mom makes you respectable. Growing up I often heard the chisme/gossip about the woman down [...]
