Celebrity actress remains friends with ex after divorce

Monday, May 21, 2018

Lisa Whelchel may not be remembered by younger people, but she is best known for her role as Blair Warner in "The Facts of Life" in the 1980s. More recently, she was a contestant on "Survivor: Philippines." The unique thing about Whelchel is that, as a celebrity, she managed to get divorced in secret. At a time when celebrity divorces are everywhere, she and her husband managed to quietly divorce and even remain friends. Those couples seeking a Texas divorce may look to this couple for inspiration.

Whelchel and her now ex-husband, Steve Cauble, were married for 24 years and have three adult children. When they decided to divorce, they also decided to remain friends. That's not to say that there weren't hurt feelings in their divorce. Whelchel readily admits that being on "Survivor" helped her not to dwell on the divorce.

So what was different for this couple? Once this couple decided that they were going to get divorced, they made a conscious decision to work together and to remain friends. Any couple looking to get divorced can do the same thing. It may not be easy, but the benefits from working together and remaining civil to each other after divorce will do everyone good -- especially if there are children involved.

Since there are several issues to be dealt with in any divorce such as property division, alimony, child custody, child support and the like, seeking advice and assistance may help prevent any difficulties later. Being able to obtain a Texas divorce amicably will go a long way toward making everyone comfortable with all of the changes that come with divorce. Even though the marriage didn't work out, that doesn't mean that the divorce has to end badly as well.
