Pandemic Relationships

Living Together, Separating, Divorcing: Surviving During a Pandemic

About Us

Michael Lang

In the relative quiet of sheltering during the pandemic, I woke up one morning a couple of weeks ago to an email from Peter in Dublin, he said that he had a mad idea and suggested we produce a book to help families strained by forced confinement and shoved suddenly into reconfiguring their lives by the impact of COVID-19. The ebook you are reading is the product of that idea, possible only because of the generous and inspired contributions from more than 70 professionals and as a result of Peter’s unflagging efforts to format, illustrate and produce the book.

This book is not my first adventure in publishing with Peter and our long term collaborator Fiona. We are in the middle of developing on a series of books for people who are considering or in the process of separation and divorce. That series, Divorce and Separation: A Practical Guide to Making Smart Decisions, supported by the exceptional work of local editors, now includes editions for 5 states, with versions for 10 more states in process – eventually we will get to every state in America.

This has been a worldwide project from the initial idea that took wings when my very dear friend and colleague Michael suggested that we reach out to Mediators around the world and ask if anyone was interested in assisting us in this very short term adventure.It took about twenty minutes after he sent out a few emails before we got our answer. Leading mediators and related professionals stepped up to the challenge.

Over one week, we received terrific pieces of crafted knowledge and handed it over to my team in OGX, who turned it into this book while putting up with Michael and my never-ending requests for changes and inputs!

I want to thank everyone involved, especially Michael, and sincerely hope these messages in these pages get into the hands of people that need it right now. Lastly, I would like to thank Karen, my beautiful wife, who has put up with me over the last thirty years or so but especially during the previous two mad weeks of developing this book.
