Real Talk about Divorce | Christian Family | TEDxColumbus

Divorce is the result of everything that happened leading up to it and it sets the stage for everything that happens after. Due to the stigma surrounding divorce, the opportunities that it creates are often buried beneath guilt, shame, hurt, and judgment. In this truth-telling talk, Christian Family shows that divorce isn’t necessarily a hero, but it isn’t a villain either. Christian Family is a speaker, facilitator, attorney and entrepreneur. As a twice-divorced, adult child of divorce, divorce lawyer for nearly 20 years, Christian knows a l lot about the topic. She is passionate about removing the stigma from divorce that causes good people to stay in bad marriages.

Christian is the owner of Christian Family Law, a graduate of Next Level Emotional Intelligence Trainings, and the mother of three little ones. Her parents, who divorced when she was seven, both live with her and the children. She truly lives the proposition that divorce doesn’t destroy families, it restructures them. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    I believe trust in relationship is overrated. After my husband was always making calls at night , I would ask and he would just wave off those calls as unimportant.I couldn’t deal with all his lies anymore at some point. Then I decided to find a way to know what was going on and I had to talk to a colleague of mine at work which referred me to this great hacking team ultimate hack who helped clone his cellphone without having to touch his device. To my surprise my husband has been a cheating Narcissist. and I’m glad i found out all his secrets and infidelity and how he planned on using this pandemic to get back to me. I got access to his Facebook, iMessage, GPS location , WhatsApp, Call Logs and Text Messages both recent and deleted ones with a remote link that was processed . I’m here in New York and was able to access my husband’s phone even while he was away in Australia cheating on me. I was heartbroken when I found out about all the conversation my husband was having with other girls and how he was flirting on dating site. I am glad I was able to get help. you can contact them via email at ultimatehack003(at)gmail com or via WhatsApp,text or call +1(720) 295-4268 now i have enough evidence to go through divorce but I’m not sure if I should let him go or stay cause we have 4 years old girl together. Please I need advice to know if I should just let him go

    It’s better to walk away that wait for death in the name that God ordained it. Why are couples killing each other if some claim it’s a covenant to be kept!!?

  3. Amber Lowry on May 29, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    I’m so glad I heard your story. Thank you for sharing. "What do I want – to be myself" oh that hit hard. I haven’t been me for so many years now

    I have always suspected my wife was cheating on me. We have been married for 12 years now and its been a smooth ride until last year when she changed and started seeing other men. A friend of mine linked me up with a great hacker ultimate Hack who helped me hack into her phone, I had complete access to her phone right on my device and I could monitor all her activities for the past 2 years and also have access to new notifications, her location, call logs, text messages and all. I was left with no other choice.I loved my wife so much and I just dont know why she chose to betray me, I have been a good husband and never for once cheated on her. I tracked her down to a hotel where I found her with another man . You can contact them at ultimatehack003 at gmail or Whatsapp +17202954268 or text and call them directly on the same number.They helped me get access into her phone without even touching her phone.I have enough evidence against my wife now and I am thinking of Filing for divorce. I want advice from men and other women on here, should I give her another chance because of our kids or file for divorce ? We have a 9 months old baby

    Not trying to start problems, but you can’t re-marry if you are divorced. We can’t break what God Almighty made. It would be considered fornication in the eyes of the Lord! Once you are married you and your partner have already became in flesh! Fornication is a sin in the sight of God Almighty!

  7. George Hsu on May 29, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Just wondering why is this TED talk named Christian family. It said nothing about Christian nor Christianity.

  8. Philip Buckley on May 29, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    you may have a message, but I am betting it is not a Christian one…

  9. alfred navamoney jebakumar on May 29, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    Where is Christian here? Or teaching of Christ…??

  10. Jessica Gordon on May 29, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Thank you for this. Currently healing from a recent separation. I am praying and crying my eyes out and your Talk was very comforting. Thank you!

    HOW I SAVE MY MARRIAGE.: There are lot of spiritual negativity spirit fighting most marriage and relationship today, My husband left 3 month ago we’ve been married for 13 years. We have a girls living at the house together. He’s the one that wanted to leave I have been left devastated emotional crying wanting him back he made no attempt to contact me he goes through the children he moved in with the lady from work I know where he’s at. We haven’t been connecting for the past months or two we’ve just been sweeping things under the rug and then I found out that he had been texting a married woman at work and they would text more than 600 times a month but he would delete them when I confronted him about it he then went and bought a prepaid phone where I couldn’t track any of the numbers so the situation blew up and he decided to move in with this guy he said it would only be for a month but I’m was scared that it’s going to be longer, I feel that in my book of cheating if your texting a married woman and deleting the text messages that’s cheating because if there’s nothing to hide you wouldn’t be deleting these text messages and you wouldn’t have bought a prepaid phone.. I feel lost and confused and don’t know where to go I went back to church and put my problems in God’s hands I pray everyday I read my Bible several times a day to try to get me through this. I try not to put the kids in the middle of this but it’s hard because he will not return any of my calls which I’ve only called him once but he won’t return any of my text messages either he always goes through the kids. I was lost and confused, But I prayed to God to please help bring back my King my happiness, It was really hard for me, I did all I could and nothings seems to change, Until I meet a Spiritists Called Dr Bernard who turn my pain to Joy and my sorrow to happiness, I told Dr Bernard my relationship problem and he told me that he will pray and my husband will come back home. never believed because I was so lost and confused but I have the faith in God that my king will come back home, But lucky for me Dr Bernard was the one who brought my love back to me, he is a good Spiritists. you can contact him Via: ( You can still save your marriage if u really love your husband or wife.

    God hates divorce. I am not certain why she is so cavalier about it. This is definitely NOT a Christian message.

  19. shielaburke on May 29, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    Yes ma’am! Currently moving forward with divorce number 2. Each one presented new opportunities. It’s hard, but sometimes necessary. You only have one life to live. Don’t waste it miserable. You don’t have to see everything through to completion. God gives us wisdom and discernment. If it’s heading in the wrong direction with no end in sight don’t be afraid to jump out the car and reroute. Not saying to give up without a fight, but you’ll know in your heart of hearts if leaving is the right thing to do. My stories are similar to yours. Third time is the charm!!!❤️

  22. JORDAN on May 29, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    With all due respect where is the name of Jesus in all of this? Did she ever pray? I’m confused? Doesn’t the title say “Christian family?”

  23. Dwight Williams on May 29, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    There is no scripture in the bible that permits remarriage. You can justify remarriage and say it’s God’s will. It’s Adultery whichever way you put it. These are all man-made beliefs that you can divorce and remarry. No bible verse permits this. Marriage is a very serious covenant that is not to be played with.

  24. Gordon Rick on May 29, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Most of these Ted Talks are notified but a glorified LinkedIn media medium which allows narcissistic people who crave praise a platform to be praised. Nothing she said was not is should not be helpful to anyone. Her husband left her for a man. Who would tell that story. Makes her look bad…

  25. Giuliana CR on May 29, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    Divorce comes with the inability to take responsibility for one’s transgressions in the marriage. It’s not so much what they do to you, but failing to acknowledge the pain inflicted by their actions.

  26. Miguel Trujillo Fotografia on May 29, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    Great Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you researched – Taparton Saving Family Takeover (search on google)? It is a great one off guide for helping a troubled marriage without the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my cooworker got cool success with it.

  27. Jatoo Caleb on May 29, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    All of you living for yourself will gv account of it trust me

  28. A J on May 29, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    Thank you for telling my story on stage but I didn’t learn to love and respect myself until after three. But, alas, I’m now full of wholeness and life and stability. So grateful for the journey. Wish I could have learned it without all the sorrow.

  31. David Welsh on May 29, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Anyone who needs a reality check on what divorce really is said about in the Bible. All through the book of Proverbs, it talks about how "better it is to live outside the walls of your own home than to live with a contentious/argumentative/abusive spouse". The truth is, marriage IS intended to be forever.. when the two people in it have healthy ideas of what marriage and family are supposed to be.

  32. Jack Kraken on May 29, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    03:54 Now that’s a plot twist.

  33. God is Love on May 29, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    Make sure you are Tithing faithfully. When I obey God in my Tithing my family is much more peaceful God gives us peace, mysteriously my kids and spouse love me much more when I obey God and Tithe faithfully.

    This speech is full of Satan’s lies. Don’t pretend to be angel of light. Your divorce is from generational curse, and will pass onto your kids100% guaranteed. This is adultery.

  37. Leonard Hill on May 29, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    This is a Christian..? She needs to read her Bible

  38. Babysa Antonrajah on May 29, 2022 at 9:27 pm
