Mayim Bialik to Divorce
Bummer. Mayim and her husband Michael Stone have decided to divorce. Because divorce is a sort of fresh start and new beginning, some say "mozel tov". Being the child of parents who divorced when I was an adult I have a difficult time with it. Divorce can be harsh and brutal. It can be very sad. It doesn't just affect two people, it affects entire families.
I realize my parents were different. It was an ugly, ugly divorce and left a lot of scars. Mayim and her husband made the decision together and will likely be just fine. Unfortunately, she's going to have to go through it in the eye of the public which I imagine is tremendously difficult. I've already seen rude posts on her facebook page questioning her as a wife, a parent and a human being. On second thought, maybe "mozel tov" is exactly the right thing to say.
