Hum. Good question. No idea if they exist in Finnish even, probably. Can't find anything intellectual in google, unless for single parents.

I used the Finnish remedy of work and whiskey to get over mine, so can't be of much help there.

Before divorce services I found:
Kansainvälinen avioliittoneuvonta
Bulevardi 16 B, Helsinki
Puh. 09-709 2401, keskiviikkoisin klo 14–17
- maybe they'd know.

Churches and various other organizations arrange some sort of seminaries I know. A fad here is something by Bruce Fisher in Finnish its called 'eroseminaari'. Dunno if it is what you'd be looking for.

Cheers, Hank W.

Divorced discussion group in general would be a good idea. Handy to bat issues and topics about which can sometimes be overlooked during this difficult time.

Been there, done that don't wanna wear the T-shirt :(

Yes, I think so. You may also check the discussion group at the vauva lehti
( I can't remember the address now. http://www.vauva.fi http://www.vauva.helsinkimagazines.fi )

Finnish men surely don't discuss this, except with a bottle of vodka, and the Finnish women you don't want to hear I suppose and beside those women who divorce tend to get married again in a year or so.

So, I've heard in previous years more similar cases. It will be difficult to get them together. When young idealistic boys come from another country to Finland, seduced by a beautiful Finnish lady, they will not easily accept messages about an English discussion group for divorced people.

The vauva lehti even has a seperate section for fathers (isien palsta) , so you can go to that internet group to whine, wheep and wail (www) about your marriage.

I also thought they had an English section, but nobody writes there.

This one is for the Finnish women (monikulttuurisuus).
