With the staggering statistic of 40 percent of Canadian marriages today ending in divorce, a group of long-time friends – Marni Sky, Mara Marcello, and Shari Wagman – launched Divorce Angels in Toronto in January 2016, drawing on their own personal experiences to create a support network, helping those going through divorce.
When it comes to business, entrepreneurs like Hollywood, love a happy ending. Maybe that’s why there are so many sites and resources available for people going through the traditional ‘happy’ stages of life such as getting married, think the theknot.com and theweddingwire.com, and countless sites devoted to new mom’s and babies such as thebump.com and babycentre.com, but divorce related sites are few and far between. Perhaps it is due in part to negative stigmas associated with divorce. (whatshesaid)
On Jan. 4, the first working Monday in January – also known as “Divorce Day” for the number of people who think about starting the new year by ending their marriages – Marni Sky and sisters Mara Marcello and Shari Wagman launched Divorce Angels, an online support network offering the services of 150 vetted professionals, as well as promotions, financial savings and a virtual community where users can connect with like-minded Canadians going through a split.
