Divorce is Hell and Where is God?

Divorce!  Right now this is the ugliest word in the English language to me.  Every couple that goes through divorce has their own issues and obstacles to over come.  The problems seem to intensify when children are involved.  But to add another layer to the already complicate life event, try being transgender.
