Some of you heard a few days ago that Zorg and I are divorcing. There are no dramatic events that precipitated this, and I'm not talking about the details except to say that I am the instigator. Yes, we have talked with a counselor.

Each of us is meeting with a collaborative lawyer to begin work on what is known as "collaborative divorce."

As I understand it, a collaborative divorce uses an open process to reach a legal agreement that meets both partners needs and priorities. It's nothing like an adversarial court proceeding. In fact, if collaboration fails, you'd have to find completely different attorneys to file in court -- the collaborative attorneys don't do that.

We're optimistic about this process and hope to remain friendly through it and afterwards.


  1. Although I'm always sorry to hear about a marriage breaking up, I'm happy to know you guys are doing it collaboratively and without malice.

  2. I am sorry to hear about you guys. I've always been fond of you both.

    I still hope to see you SF in January. I'll tell you what I'm doing and you'll tell me how things are with you.
