Celebrity Divorces and Separations: Lindsey Vonn and Thomas Vonn

As Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers, we help people get through both difficult and relatively easy divorces, including both contested and uncontested divorces.  Divorces can be a major distraction in clients' daily lives. 

But sometimes, going through a divorce will not be as big a distraction, for some people, as some people might think.  For example, various news reports indicate that America's fantastic Olympic gold medalist, Lindsey Vonn, skied one of her best downhill races ever this past weekend at a World Cup event in Alberta, Canada.

Just a week or so earlier, Ms. Vonn had reportedly filed for divorce from her ski coach and husband, Thomas Vonn, after a four-year marriage.  And yet, she then managed to win one of her finest races on the slopes!  While her divorce may, (or may not), still be difficult, the point is that she still somehow managed to cope and not to allow it to be a distraction on the slopes. 

Again, I guess her example illustrates the fact that each divorce is different and that divorce affects people in different ways.  Do you believe women cope better than men during a divorce?  What do you think?
