Adult Children of Divorce

7 months ago

We are joined by emerging Indian-American television writer and former writer of Huffington Post, Nishima Gupta. An article Nishima wrote about her parents’ divorce gained a lot of traction and she has since been developing her story for the screen. During this episode, Nishima shares the moment she found out about her parents’ divorce (three years later while still living under the same roof), why they kept this information from her, how this has affected her view on marriage and relationships – we talk about trauma, Indian representation in the media, and how different divorce can look across families and cultures. Are you an adult child of divorce, or going through one yourself? Tune in! You’re not alone. This episode was sponsored by BetterHelp, Honey, & MeUndies.
