politics-and-divorceYou may have seen a television story or magazine article profiling the marriage of political opposites. Most of these tales are positive, showing couples who have learned to live together and love each other despite their difference.

Now for the reasons why: Mediation can be a great option for many couples who want to make progress in the division of their union as amicably as possible.
