I was a typical (yet still fabulous) SUV-driving suburban Jewish housewife. Although I graduated from a large national law school and worked for all of one minute (not as a lawyer), I made the choice early on to stay home and raise my family while my husband built his career as a successful M&A lawyer. Fast-forward sixteen years. While I was busy shining up the granite and stainless steel appliances, competing with myself to be a more ethnic version of Martha Stewart, and running my three little geniuses back and forth to baseball and softball games, and to tennis, piano, and Mandarin lessons (Tiger Mom?), my husband up and left me for another (although certainly not as fabulous) woman. Today he lives in Asia with his soon-to-be new wife. And here I remain in my northern New Jersey home, a newly divorced mom, left to figure it all out.
My name is Sophie Rosen, and you know me. Well, not literally. But if you did, I could be one of your best girlfriends. So let’s laugh together, cry together, and hopefully even learn something from one another. And maybe afterwards, we can even meet at Starbucks for a latte.
P.S. My writing has also appeared on The Huffington Post, MariaShriver, The Stir, and Daily Plate of Crazy. In additon to my home at DM, I am a Contributor at EXaholics, too.
